WHITE CLOUD, Michigan — She’s a jailbird now.
A Michigan woman was sentenced to life in prison for killing her husband in a crime that was revealed when the couple’s pet parrot repeated her dying hubby’s final words.
Glenna Duram, 49, claimed she shot her 46-year-old husband, Martin, five times and then turned the gun on herself in a failed dual suicide bid in 2015.
But her story unraveled when the bird, which witnessed the crime, began blurting out, “don’t f***ing shoot,” in Martin’s voice.
Glenna Duram remained hospitalized for months after the shooting but was eventually charged after relatives told investigators what the bird had been saying. Police also found notes Duram had written which expressed remorse for what she had done and cast doubt on her double suicide claim.
Duram told cops she was bi-polar and had struggled with depression before the shooting.
The parrot, an African grey named Bud, now lives with Martin Duram’s ex-wife. The bird was not called to testify at trial.
