no crime of passion. This was a crime for money,” said Ed Springer, Comal County chief assistant district attorney.
Jendrzey also urged jurors not to sympathize with the defendant because she was an older woman.
“Feel sympathy for that; for the remains of that carcass.” Jendrzey said, pointing to a picture of Harold’s charred remains.
Prosecutors described Harold Hartwig as a lonely widower who
fell victim to a manipulative woman out to get his money.
Shortly after his wife died in 1995, Harold placed an ad in the newspaper for a home caretaker and Adele answered the ad.
Harold and Adele were married in August 1996. Harold then changed his will, leaving half of his estate to Adele, Jendrzey said.
Prosecutors also said the fire was not the first time Hartwig tried to kill her husband.
She allegedly shot her husband with a .380 caliber pistol in July 1997.
Comal County Sheriffs detectives testified they did not believe the shooting was an accident but did not press charges because Harold signed an affidavit of nonprosecution. Harold changed his will after the shooting, leaving Adele nothing.
Prosecutors argued Adele held onto the first will until after the
fire, then filed it because she believed she still could get his estate.
Gamer and defense attorney John Herrick told jurors several pieces of evidence cast a reasonable doubt on the state s case against Hartwig.
During a test burn, investigators attempted to recreate the fire by setting it the way the defendant described. The fire lit but went out shortly afterward and did not burn the wall down.
Herrick said the demonstration proved Hartwig lied about starting the fire. “This is conclusive that the fire did not start the way Adele said it did” Herrick said.
Experts from the state arson lab testified they did not find any traces of flammable liquid on the defendant’s clothes or gunpowder on her hands.
