Mini Bio (1)
Elisabeth Anne "Betty" Broderick was born on November 7, 1947 in Eastchester New York, one of six children born to Frank and Marita Bisceglia. As a college freshman in 1965, she met Daniel T. Broderick III, then a medical student at Cornell, and they married in 1969, moving from Pennsylvania to California. Betty gave birth to two boys and two girls thoughout the marriage. By this time, Dan Broderick had gone from medical to law, and was making millions of dollars a year as a medical-malpractice attorney. However, as the money poured in, the marriage was dissolving, and in 1983 Dan began seeing Linda Kolkena, who at the time was twenty-one years old. Betty reacted to this news violently, and after Dan moved out and began initiating divorce proceedings, she began vandalising his new premises, leaving foul-mouthed messages on the answering machine and generally attempted to make life difficult for both Dan and Linda. After the divorce was finalised in 1989, Dan married his former mistress and tore Betty apart in the settlement - she was left with, considering that by this time Dan was a multi-millionaire, the bare neccesities (Dan was also awarded custody of the children). All of this pressure eventually took it's toll on November 5, 1989, and Betty broke into Dan's home and shot both him and Linda whilst they lay sleeping. After two trials (the first one resulted in a hung jury), she was convicted in 1991 of two counts of second-degree murder, and sentenced to 32-years-to-life imprisonment. Her first possible parole date is in March 2011.
