Childers confessed on the stand Tuesday that she and Dean planned to kill Niles, the father of her two young children.
According to Defense Attorney Joe Damelio, Childers wrote more than 40 letters to his client over the last few months. He says he belives Childers is only being truthful because it's in her favor.
"I think she said it all. The truth is the truth when it serves her and it’s something that the jury has to deal with in this case," Damelio said. "She’s told many different versions for many different reasons and most of them seem to be self-serving.”
The trial will resume Wednesday morning.
