Nibbe Wrongful Death Trial Set 26 Jul 13

A trial date has been set for the wrongful death lawsuit against a Lake Crystal woman convicted of murdering her husband. Jennifer Nibbe pleaded guilty to 2nd-Degree Murder in June of 2012 after killing her husband James while he slept in their rural Lake Crystal home in August of 2010. She is currently serving a 17-year prison sentence for the crime, and will be on supervised release for over 8 years after that. The family of James Nibbe is seeking damages because of what they call the “intentional and malicious nature” of his death. At a court hearing this week, the 2-day wrongful death trial was scheduled to begin on November 13th.
