WHITE CLOUD, Mich. – A Michigan woman has been sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of her husband in a crime apparently witnessed by the man’s pet parrot. Forty-nine-year-old Glenna Duram of Sand Lake learned her sentence Monday after a jury found her guilty of first-degree murder and a felony firearm charge last month. Forty-six-year-old Martin Duram was shot five times in May 2015. Glenna Duram suffered a head wound in what prosecutors said was a suicide attempt, but survived.
Martin Duram’s ex-wife, Christina Keller, said that after the slaying, “Bud,” the pet parrot, repeated “Don’t fucking shoot” in Martin Duram’s voice. Keller took ownership of the bird after Duram’s death.
