Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode seems to be based on the Brian Wells case. Wells was killed by a time bomb explosive fastened to his neck, purportedly under duress from the maker of the bomb. After he was apprehended by the police for robbing a bank, the bomb exploded. In a July 2007 indictment, Federal prosecutors alleged that Wells had been involved in the planning of the botched crime. Two of his co-conspirators, Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong and Kenneth Barnes, were indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of bank robbery, conspiracy, and weapons charges. A third co-conspirator, William Stockton, was given immunity in exchange for his testimony. On July 29, 2008 a federal judge ruled that Diehl-Armstrong was mentally incompetent to stand trial for the bombing. She has a hearing scheduled in November 2008 to decide if she will be competent at that time to stand trial. On September 3, 2008 Barnes pleaded guilty to conspiring to rob a bank and to aiding and abetting. He faces life in prison. (Source: Brian Douglas Wells at Wikipedia)
