WHITE CLOUD, MI — A Michigan woman has been convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of her husband — that was reportedly witnessed by the man’s pet parrot.
Glenna Duram, 49, was found guilty on Wednesday of killing Martin Duram, 46. Duran was reportedly shot five times in May 2015.
Glenna Duram also suffered a head wound in what prosecutors said was a suicide attempt, but she survived.
Martin Duram’s ex-wife Christina Keller, who took the bird after his death, told police that she was shocked when her late ex-husband’s 21-year-old pet parrot, Bud, repeated “don’t (expletive) shoot” in Martin Duram’s voice. She also reported that it sounds like the bird is mimicking an argument between a man and a woman. “I’m hearing two people in an intense argument,” Keller said. “Two people that I know, voices that I recognize.”
Duram will be sentenced on August 28.
