Trappler's defense attorney Susan Betz-Jitomer said there's not enough evidence to convict the 41 year old Addison woman of 2nd degree murder charges. District Attorney Joseph Fazzary will begin his closing arguments shortly after 9 this morning.
Trappler is accused of arraigning the killing of her ex-boyfriend and father of her child, Daniel Bennett in the town of Dix last April. Investigators say the shooter was Trappler’s ex-husband, 32-year-old Corning man Thomas Borden. Twenty-five-year-old Corning resident Nathan Hand, Borden’s stepbrother, participated in the killing and testified against Trappler in exchange for a 19-year prison sentence.
Borden was killed days after Bennett’s death when he jumped in front of a commuter train near Philadelphia as police moved in to apprehend him
