Murder after her harrowing 911 call and killer husband’s suspicious excuse
As the publication noted, the house showed no signs of a break-in, and the only DNA found on the shotgun belonged to Nick.
“It never felt right,” one investigator said.
“The story never made sense to me.
“He [Nick] tells investigators that he grabbed a shotgun, loaded it with two shells and then proceeded to have Heidi go down the stairs in front of him towards the very door that this alleged burglar was at.
“Why would you send the unarmed person down in front of you is beyond me.
“To me, there were only two people in that house when Heidi was killed.
“Nick and Heidi.”
In May of 2021, Nick was arrested and charged with first and second-degree murder.
According to prosecutors, his motivation revolved around financial struggles.
As ABC News stated, prosecutors said he killed his wife to “hide from the shame” brought on by the monetary difficulties.
On February 10, 2023, Nick was found guilty of both murder charges after the jury took ten hours to decide his fate.
He was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Thursday, April 13, 2023.
