Edward Kyttle convicted of murder

Last week I brought you the story of Edward Kyttle (61), who is being sentenced in the 1993 murder of his wife, Eleanor Kyttle. Mark Kyttle (30), the defendant's son took the stand on Wednesday August 5, 2009 and gave a chilling account of the events that led up to the death of his mother 16 years ago.

Mark was 14 years old at the time. His family owned a chicken ranch in Ranburne, Ala. Mark was awakened by the sound of his parents arguing down the hall. They were angry with each other and shouting, at one point, Mark heard the word, "divorce". The shouting came to an abrupt stop with a loud "thud" sound at which time he got up to investigate. He found his father standing over his mother as she sat motionless in her recliner. Kyttle said his father told him, "We've got to get her out of here."
