Sisterhood can be powerful

This week in the trial of Nailah Franklin's accused murderer: A woman made her voice heard, even though she didn't testify.

A guy named Hugh took the stand and said that, on the night of the murder, he picked the accused up at an Indiana gas station, not far from where Nailah's abandoned car was found. This is not what he told police back in 2007. Then Hugh had provided his buddy an alibi, saying they had been together all evening in the city of Chicago.

Why did he change his story? He testified that his wife coaxed him "to tell the truth."

Good for her. Good for him. Good for the memory of Nailah Franklin, may she rest in peace.
