Text messages used in murder trial

Text message transcripts have been admitted as evidence in the case of two Canadian teens accused of murdering their alcoholic mother in 2003.

The girls were 15 and 16 at the time of the crime and prosecutors are using a truly disturbing transcript between one friend and one defendant that describes the crime and advice for carrying it out.

“Good luck. Use gloves,” writes a “friend” after one of the defendants explains the plan via texting. (More of the conversation is here.)

The trial has also admitted e-mails between one defendant and her boyfriend in which they plan the crime and a “celebratory dinner.”
