A pet parrot's keen sense of hearing and affinity for repeating phrases helped to convict his owner's murderer in court in a very unusual case.
Be careful what you say - your pets are watching. A pet parrot recently aided in the conviction of a murderer, simply by keeping his ears open.
Martin, 46, was shot five times in May of 2015, and died. Glenna sustained a head wound. Prosecutors stated that the head wound was the result of a suicide attempt. Glenna survived.
Christina Keller, Martin's ex-wife, took ownership of Martin's pet parrot, Bud, after the man's death. Christina said that after Martin's death, Bud repeated the phrase "don't (expletive) shoot" in Martin's voice.
Bud's statement became evidence in the case, and the jury convinced Glenna of first-degree murder. She is scheduled to be sentenced on August 28 for a murder and felony firearm charge.
