Prosecutors branded the woman the "proverbial black widow." In an unusual move, Hartmann, 36, was allowed to address U. District Judge James Moran in his chambers, away from the eyes of the media and courtroom spectators, to present her side of the June 8, 1982, murder of Werner Hartmann. "You maintain your innocence and you come through as intelligent, but with a past history as psychologically damaged and unable to appreciate the injury you have inflicted," Moran told her in the courtroom.After Moran sentenced her to 22 years in prison, he sentenced John Scott Korabik, her former boyfriend, to 16 years in prison, and their co-conspirator, Kenneth Kaenel, to 20 years in prison.In 1959, Ross was brought to the attention of Milton Jenkins, the manager of the local doo-wop group The Primes, by Mary Wilson.

Debra Hartmann Gets 22-year Term By John Gorman - Chicago March 13, 1990 A federal judge Monday ignored the plea of a tearful Debra Hartmann that "I did not want my husband dead," and sentenced the former exotic dancer to 22 years in prison for conspiracy in the machine-gun slaying of her millionaire husband. "It's true we had our moments when he hit me, but I felt if we would have a separation, if we had gone for some counseling, things would have worked themselves out." Moran was unsympathetic.Gary worked for Sid Fairgate, owner of Knots Landing Motors, the local c car dealership.
In the fall of 1981, Sid Fairgate was paralyzed and later died as a result of an auto accident, leaving Karen to run KL Motors with Abby and Gary., but it has been a more interesting ride than we even expected.Along the way, she's gotten rid of more than a few fan favorites, such as Twilley, Fred, Richard, Ryan, and most recently and shockingly, Graham. Maybe she only likes guys whose names start with J - Jessie, Jeremy and Jason. Originally, the series focused on the four married couples who resided in the cul-de-sac of Seaview Circle in the quiet beach town of Knots Landing.In addition to being neighbors, their lives intertwined in other ways.The sentencing brought to an end one of the most bizarre and publicized murders in recent memory. John Farrell and Steve Miller say, Korabik sneaked into the posh Hartmann home in Northbrook, hid in a closet, and then shot his lover's 38-year-old husband 14 times with a machine pistol to prevent Hartmann from divorcing and disinheriting Debra.
