For their eleven years of marriage, Martin and Glenna kept in touch with their neighbours.

After a few days, their neighbour entered their home and saw both of them lying motionless on the floor. She immediately dialled Police.

However, when the emergency services arrived, they realised Glenna was still breathing.

Her eyes opened and her body jerked, according to Sgt. Gary Wilson, who told the court, as he proceeded to check her pulse.

She apparently asked: “What are you doing?”

Glenna has now been found guilty of murdering her husband.

Amazingly, the couple’s pet parrot provided a crucial piece of information that helped solve the case.

After the victim’s murder, Christina Keller, the victim’s ex-wife, adopted the bird, an African Grey named Bud.

She noticed that the bird would repeatedly say ‘Shut up’, ‘Get your a** over here’, and ‘Don’t shoot’.

Keller was so suspicious of what the parrot was saying that she recorded it.

Speaking on As It Happensshe explained: “I think it’s a piece of the puzzle.

“I think it’s possible last words

“I truly believe, with all my heart, most of that [what the parrot says] comes from that night.”

She added: “It terrified me.”

“I hear screaming, yelling and fear.”

Although the parrot and the recordings were not used in court, Keller’s theory was thought to have some evidence to support it.

Martin’s ex-wife also says: “I looked through the police report. About four neighbours said, ‘You need to talk to that bird’.

“I know it sounds ridiculous, but that’s how intelligent Bud is and how much people believed that he witnessed this.”

The Detroit News detailed the couple’s difficult home life, with the pair in financial turmoil brought on by Glenna’s gambling problems.

She also concealed her mounting debts from her husband, it was learned.

The murder weapon was discovered by investigators under a sofa.

Her lone gunshot wound, according to the prosecution, was the consequence of an unsuccessful suicide attempt.

According to The Cinemaholic, Glenna is currently serving a life sentence in Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility in Pittsfield Charter Township, Michigan.

She did request a retrial in 2019, but this was rejected by the Supreme Court.
