Video shows woman’s interview with Jefferson county detectives after killing husband over porn

News

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ark. – In a first look at her interview with Jefferson county detectives, Patricia Hill, 69, claims she and her husband Frank, 65, were in an “unhappy marriage” and said Frank “might as well” have lived in a shed out back where Patricia shot and killed him after learning he renewed a subscription to an adult television channel last summer.

“Out there in his so called man cave with two TVs on and had the pornography on when I walked out there,” Patricia said during a recorded interview with investigators just hours after the shooting in July 2018.

Photos from the crime scene reveal the couple’s home that — from the outside — appeared normal and decorated. Photos in the kitchen show what look like dinner rolls on the counter and placemats on the dining room table.

Photos from what Patricia calls Frank’s “mancave” reveal an unkept dwelling full of older-style televisions, garbage cans full of beer cans and tables with cigarette butts.

“Did Mr. Frank live in that shed?” a detective asks in the interview.

Might as well. No, he comes in the house to sleep and he comes in to eat,” Patricia replies.

“It’s a very unhappy marriage. Let’s put it that way.”

In the interview, Patricia tells the detectives she discovered Frank renewed a cable subscription to a pornogrpahy channel that she canceled the month before and told him not to renew it. She said she snapped.

“I went and got the 22 and I shot him in the leg,” Patricia says in the interview with detectives.

“Then I shot again, and I don’t know where it hit him, but he fell to the floor.”

This past April, Patricia Hill was sentenced to 16 years in prison for killing Frank. 

She will be eligible for parole in eight years.
