Case of double homicide after restraining order denied goes to trial

Last winter, I wrote about a double homicide in Helena, Montana, in which a woman named Michelle Gable entered her estranged husband Joe’s apartment and shot and killed him and a woman. Joe had applied for a restraining order, unsuccessfully.  The Billings Gazette reports that the trial starts this week, and that Gable will argue justifiable force, although there is also a possibility of an argument of “extreme emotional distress.”

Stay tuned.
