Update On Dan Markel Murder Investigation

Adelson FamilyJonathan Turley (George Washington), The Murder of Professor Dan Markel: Confession of Contract Killer Raises Questions Over Role of Wendi Adelson:

The clear effort of the police is now to build a case against the Adelsons. While previously the effort seemed focused on Charlie Adelson, it now appears to be also focusing on Wendi Adelson. Clearly, someone hired these hit men and they did not spontaneously decide to kill a law professor. The obvious suspects are the Adelsons and they remain prominent references in the warrants and this confession. With Rivera’s confession and deal, the pressure will be even greater on Magbanua to cut a deal. Her cooperation may be the ultimate goal of this building investigation and the final straw before the arrest of one of the Adelsons, who are clearly the ultimate targets for the investigators.

I'm sorry, but I'm not seeing any evidence of intent. No charges should be filed.

I don't know what you're reading, but I see NOTHING but evidence of intent.
