Deja Vu: Wife Murders Second Husband In Exact Same Way, Same Place She Offed First


Colleen Harris must’ve experienced a major case of deja vu this week when she went on trial for the murder of her second husband in the same courtroom where she went on trial for killing her first husband.

To add to the similarities, the 72-year-old allegedly killed her second husband, 72-year-old Robert Harris, with a shotgun, which is the same method she used on her first ball-and-chain, James Batten.

In 1986, she was acquitted of Batten’s murder after saying she was acting in self-defense after spending years as a battered housewife.

Though Harris’ lawyers are trying to keep details from first trial out of the second, it’s impossible not to notice the parallels between the two alleged crimes.

For example, each victim was killed in the bedroom after Harris fired a shotgun at them multiple times.

Colleen and Robert, who went by Bob, dated on and off for years. In fact, after they divorced in 2004, they remarried a year later.

The couple eventually separated again but remained close.

However, in 2013, Colleen allegedly overheard Bob talking to his new girlfriend and later went into the bedroom and shot him in his sleep with a 12-gauge shotgun.

Her first call after the incident was her attorney David Weiner, who represented her in the first trial.

Colleen has been held without bail since her arrest and a judge ruled that prosecutors may discuss the first case in her upcoming trial.

    If you had just found out that you had one more day to live would you live your life any different than you do right now?

    How about if you learned that everyone you loved had a fatal disease and you knew what the cure was, wouldn’t you want to tell them?

    Well, the facts are that everyone’s life-time is limited and the end game is certainly fatal. We might as all live our lives as if each day or minute is our last. Because it is. We do not know when each of us will take our last breath.

    Do you know where you will spend eternity? Do you know where your loved one’s will spend eternity? There are 2 choices… Heaven or Hell.
    YOU have a CHOICE! But you must make the decision before you die. A lot of people think it is easy to decide. Most people put the decision off until it is to late and they miss their chance to decide. Their decision is made for them.

    Why loose the option to choose for yourself? Choose life in Heaven NOW!

    There is only one way you can be spared from the devastation that is eternity in Hell.

    You may ask yourself, What must I do??????

    Trust in Jesus Christ, the son of God and the Savior of mankind.


    1.) Understand that you are a sinner (everyone, EVERYONE) You may try to argue this point. That is OK, but if you have ever, lied, gossiped, bragged, been prideful, been arrogant, self-righteous, etc. etc. (don’t worry WE ALL HAVE) you have put the nail in your own coffin. None of that (arguments) matters, might as well just admit it. Don’t argue with GOD! He knows everything anyway.

    2.) Believe that Jesus was God’s son and was the Christ the savior of the world.

    3.) Believe that he died for our sins (the sins of the whole world)

    4.) Believe that he rose on the 3 day to show us that we could have eternal life.

    5.) Ask him to save you personally and tell him now you want to live for him

    Why don’t you take out “Life Insurance” for Eternal Life! It is FREE

    I hope to see you all in Heaven.

      Just what are you babbling about? This has nothing to do with the article.

        You are kidding right? 2 people have died in this article and my post is about being prepared if/when that time comes.
        There is a day that all people will face their Creator. Where that person spends eternity is based upon their belief system. Obviously you care nothing about that. My I urge you to consider where YOU will spend the rest of eternity WHEN you die. There are only 2 options. Both are real!
        Your move…..

          Just for one day, I implore you to think like an adult human with the gift of logic. Your idiotic “beliefs” have nothing to do with the rest of us.

            Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

            It’s been 18 days. Perhaps he was just here to speak his mind and leave?
