She was loved by so many in her community. Her death would devastate residents in the small town located in Cortland County, not far from Syracuse, New York.
Wendy Thibeault was a kind gentle woman, yet hated by one person so enraged that on Memorial Day, Charles Randy Thibeault, strangled her to death.
Wendy endured years of abuse. Gathering all her strength, filing for an order of protection in April of 2008, seeking legal assitance to end the abuse and marriage was not enough, as in many cases of a violent partner relationships.
On July, 17, 2008, Cortland County District Attorney David Hartnett, announced the formal indictment for Randy Thibeault.
Is the legal system in Cortland County able to find a jury who will be able to carry out justice against one of their own long-time residents?
If they do not convict Charles Randy Thibeault, for the murder of his wife, then they too, will be just as guilty in the strangulation death of Wendy.
Domestic Violence is a crime. Wendy Thibeault, was forced to join a bloody club whose membership across the country, grows in numbers with lightening speed.
