It's been a week of startling twists of legal fate.
Tuesday, Jared Remy took the rare step of pleading guilty to stabbing his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, to death. That means he'll spend life in prison with no chance for parole.
On Wednesday, a court threw out the murder conviction of a former FBI agent charged in a mob killing ordered by Whitey Bulger.
And Friday, a Quincy taxi driver was charged with obstructing the FBI investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings.
WBUR’s Sacha Pfeiffer digs into the stories of the week with our panel.
- "A Quincy taxi driver who was friends with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was charged Friday with obstructing the bombing investigation."
- "A divided Florida appeals court on Wednesday threw out the murder conviction and lengthy prison sentence for a former FBI agent in the decades-old mob-style killing of a gambling executive."
- "Jared Remy, who pleaded guilty Tuesday to killing his girlfriend, woke up at MCI Cedar Junction in Walpole for the first time Wednesday morning. For Remy, now known in the system as inmate W104672, this will be the new normal until he is ultimately sent to a Department of Correction facility, where he will likely serve out the rest of his life sentence."
