Let this be a lesson to anyone considering "drugging and bludgeoning" their spouse.

Nancy Kissel’s retrial for the murder of her Merrill Lynch & Co. banker husband was adjourned today after she screamed repeatedly and said she could “see” him while being cross-examined by the prosecution. “I can see him. He’s on the floor,” Kissel told Clift- Matthews, pointing. The judge vacated the court and allowed Kissel’s mother and lawyers to console her. He then ordered an adjournment until Monday. Prosecutors have rejected Kissel’s guilty plea to manslaughter and allege she planned his drugging and bludgeoning to death. Her defense has argued she suffered from mental disorders and was provoked into the killing.
