Two old jokes came to mind when reading that a Tulsa woman accused of pushing her husband out of a high-rise apartment window is suing the apartment building’s owners.
One is the line about a man who jumps from a high-rise and is asked midway down how things are going for him. “So far, so good” is the reply. The other joke is about the guy who kills his parents and then pleads for mercy based on his status as an orphan.
Amber Hilberling is charged with second-degree murder for her alleged involvement in husand Joshua Hilberling’s 17-story plunge on June 7, 2011, which prosecutors say resulted from a domestic fight. She’s suing the apartment owners, claiming the window glass was thin and substandard.
Her criminal trial is scheduled for next March. No trial date has been set for the civil case.
