Hammer Attack Trial: Marissa Devault facing the death penalty

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

Laughing and smiling just hours after her husband was brutally attacked in bed with a hammer.
That's what jurors saw on interrogation tapes of Marissa Devault Wednesday. Devault is the Gilbert woman accused of killing her husband with a hammer.

The time and date stamp on this video are very important. It was taken the day of the hammer attack about 6 o'clock at night. That's 15-hours after Marissa Devault called 911. She seemed cheerful and even laughed when being questioned by Detectives.

Devault claimed it was self defense, meanwhile her husband at the time of the video was fighting for his life in the hospital.

Devault: "I woke up to this and he was bent down a little bit lower and he wasn't very polite to me."
Detective: "what did he say?"
Devault: "'this (expletive) is mine' it's the one I remember the most, something about (expletive) (expletive)."
Detective: "you blacked out?"
Devault: "and the next thing I see is...I saw a hammer go into dale's head"
Devault: "I got hit with..."
Detective: "where did you get hit?"
Devault: "it was blood over my face"
Detective: "you see dale on the ground and you see what? describe what you see to me..."
Devault: "(inaudible)...ugh"
    
Prosecutors showed the jury a picture of dale in the hospital after the attack. He died a month later.

While this picture was up Devault broke down crying in court. She was crying so badly the jury was sent on a break and then sent home because she couldn't stop crying.

The judge said if she continues to disrupt court Thursday the trial will continue without her.
