The prosecution accused Armstrong of killing Wilson in a jealous rage, and her family and friends expressed their grief after the verdict. Wilson’s mother and friend, Caitlin Cash, testified during the trial and shared their deep sorrow and regret. Armstrong’s sister and mother also demonstrated deep emotion following the verdict.
