A Lake Crystal woman accused of murdering her husband is due in court for a pre-trial hearing this week. Jennifer Nibbe has been indicted on 1st-degree murder charges and faces the possibility of life in prison. Blue Earth County Judge Bradley Walker ruled last month that Nibbe’s alleged confession following her arrest will be admissable in court. Nibbe is accused of killing her husband James Nibbe while he slept in their rural Lake Crystal home in August of 2010. Her pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Wednesday with her trial set to start on April 16th.
