Tracy Denise Roberson, pictured left, is the wife of Darrell Roberson from Ivy Glen Drive in Arlington, Texas. On Dec. 11, 2006, Tracy Denise Roberson smsed Devin LaSalle to invite him to come to her house. When he was back home at the night of the day, Darrell Roberson found Tracy and LaSalle having sex in in a pickup truck. Responding to his wife's rape crying, Darrell Roberson fired 4 shots and killed LaSalle when he tried to escape. Last year, a Texan grand jury declined to indict Darrell Roberson on a murder charge, but Tracy Roberson was indicted on manslaughter charges. On May 2, Tracy Denise Roberson who admitted lying and willingly participating in the sexual relationship was placed all the blame and convicted of involuntary manslaughter by prosecutors. Now she is facing up to 20 years in prison. Source: WCSh6 & Chicagotribune
A Texas woman who caused her lover's shooting death by falsely crying rape was convicted Friday of involuntary manslaughter.
Tracy Denise Roberson, 37, cried a bit when the verdict was announced. The punishment phase was set for Monday, and she faces two to 20 years in prison.
In late 2006, Darrell Roberson came home from a late-night card game to find his scantily clad wife with another man in a pickup truck in the driveway. Tracy Roberson was with her lover but cried rape, and her husband fired four shots into the truck as Devin LaSalle drove off, killing him.
Darrell Roberson initially was arrested, but a murder charge was later dropped and a grand jury indicted Tracy Roberson instead.
During her three-day trial, defense attorneys called no witnesses but blamed LaSalle's death on Darrell Roberson's jealousy and rage.
But prosecutors placed all the blame on Tracy Roberson, showing evidence of the affair with LaSalle, 32, and a text message in which she invited him to her house that evening.Source:google.com
