Woman Found Guilty As Parrot Is Only Witness To Murder

A woman has been found guilty of murdering her husband in a crime witnessed only by their pet parrot.

Glenna Duram, 49, was convicted of first-degree murder in a Michigan courtroom Wednesday over the death of her husband, 46-year-old Martin Duram.

The 49-year-old had been accused of shooting her husband five times, before turning the gun on herself in a failed suicide attempt at their home in Newaygo County.

Martin Duram’s pet parrot, Bud, was the only witness to the murder, however he was not called upon during the trial.

However, Duram’s ex-wife, Christina Keller, who took Bud in after the murder, said the parrot overheard Martin begging for his life before being shot.

Keller said Bud repeatedly said, ‘Don’t f***ing shoot’ while mimicking his former owner’s voice, which the ex-wife said was the bird replaying the final words he heard from Martin Duram on the night he was shot.
