Broderick herself never denied firing the fatal shots, although she always insisted she did not remember pulling the trigger. She contended the emotional and psychological abuse that she endured during sixteen years of marriage and four years of divorce from Dan Broderick had turned her into “an electrified crazy person” and drove her to desperate, violent actions. Betty’s defense attorney, Jack Earley, argued that her crime was manslaughter, not murder; the distinction could mean the difference between life in prison without parole and a sentence of fifteen years.
Betty recalled them for the jury: “A dating relationship is very different from marriage. During dating, I had my own money, my own car. I lived with my parents, but I had some freedom. Afterward, he was in charge of everything. ” The shining dream of love and marriage was already turning murky. In a matter of weeks Betty was talking about getting a divorce. Dan Broderick, too, soon wanted out. ” In 1988 Dan Broderick also mentioned the early problems in his marriage when he talked to reporters for the San Diego Reader, a weekly paper.
She remembered that her mother would lock her husband out when she was angry, and Dan Broderick would come to his eldest daughter’s window and whisper for her to open the door for him. Dan also had a temper. He “hated” dogs, according to his daughter Lee, and at least once is reported to have kicked the family pet. He “would break things that would frustrate him,” like the lawn mower. At other times he broke an aquarium and ripped a door off its hinge. Betty remembered that he threw one door out of a window in a rage.
