Woman Guilty of Skydiving Murder (VIDEO)

A terrifying murder case has finally been resolved, as a woman in Belgium was convicted of sabotaging another woman's parachute, so that she died while they were skydiving.

The murderer set up the other woman to die because they were romantic rivals in a love triangle. The woman denies doing this horible deed, saying "I am really innocent. I can only repeat it. From the beginning, I was found guilty for something horrible which I really did not commit."

But her lawyers could not convince the jury to agree, and not the court is sending her to receive the harsh punishment that surely comes with such a murder.
