On Monday January 13,Jeff Wright was to come home after boxing and snorting coke to a home cooked meal prepared by his wife in hopes of a romantic dinner date.

After cramming him in, she began scooping the dirt over the top of him; just as the sun was starting to come up.
Back in the house, Susan began cleaning up the blood beginning with the path of blood from the bedroom to the patio. She put the bloody sheets into a garbage bag and tossed the bloody mattress into the backyard while trying to figure out what to do with it later. Then she loaded the kids into the car and ran a couple of errands, including stopping by the hardware store to pick up a couple of gallons of paint.
Every spare moment between caring for the kids and the dog, Susan worked at cleaning up the crime scene. When she was done, Susan looked around the room. Except for the huge bleach spot on the carpet, which she was sure she could explain away if ever asked, she thought everything looked normal. But thinking and knowing are two very different things. As morning slipped away to afternoon, the Wrights called Susan and asked if Jeffrey had ever returned home.
Yes, she told them, he had returned home to collect his clothing and they had wound up in a shouting match. Jeff was so angry, Susan said, he took a bottle of bleach and shook it all over the bedroom and her clothing.

There she filed a report based on the same story she told everyone else and had pictures taken of the cuts and bruises on her hand. By Saturday, Susan was about break under the pressure.

Susan Wright turned herself on January 24,and her trial began in February 24, This courtroom scene was very dramatic and not easily forgotten by anyone who has ever witnessed it. Especially so for jurors, no doubt, who, after only five and one half hours, find Susan guilty of murder.
Wright's defense attorney Neal Davis claimed that his client had suffered years of physical and emotional abuse by her husband, and killed him to protect herself and her two young children. In her emotional testimony on the stand, Wright claimed: I knew as soon as I stopped, he was going to get the knife back and he was going to kill me. I didn't want to die. Wright once again persisted that she stabbed her husband in self-defense.
Susan Wright's mother, among others, testified for the defense, claiming they witnessed Wright's bruises. Siegler said Wright's tears were faked to try and sway the jury[ citation needed ].
The prosecution presented an unusual demonstration by bringing the Wrights' actual bed into the courtroom. She contended that Susan Wright was a "card-carrying, obvious, no-doubt-about-it, caught-redhanded, confirmed, documented liar", whose frequent shows of emotion during the trial were deliberate efforts to influence the jury.
In contrast to her emotional testimony during the trial, Wright showed little reaction to the guilty verdict.
