Inside Bill Stout’s murder at the hands of his wife, who was investigating how to get away with it, and the key evidence they gave up

A MONTANA man was murdered by his wife who was looking into getting away with it – she gave away a key piece of evidence.

Authorities found Bill Stout’s wife Anne Marie guilty after she discovered a rubber glove containing her DNA and gunshot residue during a three-week trial over the chilling crime of passion.

Bill Stout was allegedly shot in the head with his own pistol while he was sleeping on the night of June 9, 2007.

Authorities found his gun went missing 10 days before he was killed, and he even reported it to police, Dateline said.

Investigators later found Bill’s pistol in his motorcycle saddlebag in his and Anne Marie’s garage at their Montana home.

During the investigation, the police also found a rubber glove, which later became the most important piece of evidence in the search for the killer.

After analyzing the glove, investigators found traces of Anne Marie’s DNA, making her the prime suspect in the case.

Anne Marie was charged with first-degree manslaughter just weeks after Bill’s death, but prosecutors had yet to gather convincing evidence to use against her.

FURTHER NOTES FOUND

Investigators also found a suspicious note in Anne Marie’s handwriting on her bedside table.

The note explained how to use a gun and continued to arouse suspicion from authorities.

The last piece of evidence against Anne Marie was on a computer.

Police found an extensive search history looking for ways to kill someone.

While all signs pointed to Anne Marie being the killer, more was yet to be revealed in this shocking case.

SHOCKING TWIST

After Anne Marie was accused of murdering her husband, it was revealed that Bill was having an affair with a woman named Barbara Miller.

Anne Marie had found out about the affair, which caused obvious problems in the marriage.

In addition, Barbara was reportedly pregnant with Bill’s child.

Barbara apparently harassed Bill in letters and emails after the tryst.

The “other woman” also allegedly reached out to Bill’s family and friends in her emails and harmed more people than just Bill, the Ravalli Republic reported.

Anne Marie apparently blamed Barbara’s molestation for influencing her actions.

However, investigators made a startling discovery when they checked Barbara’s emails.

Officials determined that Anne Marie had created a fake persona by using her work computer to harass her husband after learning about his affair.

“You have embarked on a protracted, truly disturbing campaign of vengeful, covert attacks on Bill, not only at him but at your own children, family and neighbors as well. Everyone important in Bill’s life,” District Judge Jeffrey Langton said during his sentencing.

With all the evidence stacked against her, the jury decided to sentence Anne Marie to life imprisonment after only six hours of deliberation.

This conviction came a year after Bill’s death.

Anne Marie asked to see her children one last time after serving life in prison, but the judge would not listen to her request.

“Your children will be deprived of your company,” Langton said. “Not because you were convicted of the crime. It’s because you committed the crime.”
