of murder

NEWCASTLE NSW – Michelle Willard was shopping for a new life in the days leading up to her husband’s murder. Willard had taken out two life insurance policies, went shopping for a high-performance car and was buying a house when Michael Willard was shot in the head in the couple’s Hunter Valley home, in 2003.

A Newcastle Supreme Court jury yesterday convicted the 38-year- old, after the prosecution alleged she murdered Mr Willard to collect more than $200,000 in insurance. Willard faces sentencing submissions on Wednesday.
