Tulsan accused in husband's fatal fall from high-rise goes back in jail

A Tulsa woman who is accused of murdering her husband by pushing him through a high-rise window was back in jail Friday after a judge determined that she violated the rules and conditions of her release while free on bond.

Tulsa County District Judge Kurt Glassco revoked Amber Michelle Hilberling's $250,000 bond and ordered her held without bail.

Glassco took that action after receiving a report that Hilberling, 20, provided urine samples Dec. 22 and again Dec. 28 that tested positive for THC, which is indicative of marijuana use.

Glassco said Friday that he was informed that in a urinalysis this week, Hilberling also tested positive for THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, a chemical compound found in marijuana.

According to a report by Chris Worsham, Tulsa County Court Services assistant director, "Hilberling explained that she used marijuana before she was placed in jail" on Dec. 1.

Assistant District Attorney Michelle Keely, in arguing at Friday's hearing for Hilberling's bond to be revoked, said marijuana use is "prohibited in Oklahoma for all reasons."

Rhonda Whitlock, the defendant's mother, testified that her daughter lives with her in Tulsa. She said she has seen no evidence that Hilberling has used marijuana since her December release from jail.

Whitlock said her daughter is a "loving mother" to Hilberling's infant son, who lives with them.

Joshua Hilberling, 23, died June 7 when he fell 17 stories from a window in the couple's home at the University Club Apartments, 1722 S. Carson Ave.

His wife was arrested that day and released from jail June 8 on $250,000 bond.

On Dec. 1, Glassco revoked that bond and ordered her held without bail after being informed by Court Services personnel that she had violated her 9 p.m. curfew and failed to keep her Global Positioning System monitor charged on multiple occasions.

On Dec. 13, the judge allowed her bond to be re-instated, and she was again released from jail.

Glassco set requirements that included urinalyses to be monitored by the Court Services office.

At a preliminary hearing, a judge ordered Hilberling to face trial on a second-degree murder charge that contains an accusation that she pushed her husband, causing him to fall through the window.

She also was bound over for trial on an alternative charge of first-degree manslaughter on an allegation that the death occurred while she was committing a domestic assault and battery.

A court document filed on Hilberling's behalf in December described the death as "bizarre, unexpected and wholly accidental."

Hilberling's jury trial is set for Aug. 20. Defense attorneys indicated Friday that they could file a request to get that trial date moved up on the court docket.

Normal Push of death: Tulsa woman found guilty of murdering husband by shoving him through high-rise window

Post by raine1953 on Sat Jun 01, 2013 2:57 am

An Oklahoma woman was found guilty Monday of second-degree murder after she pushed her husband, an Air Force veteran, out the window of their 17th-story apartment in 2011.
Amber Michelle Hilberling, now 21, was seven months pregnant when she pushed Joshua Hilberling, then 23, through a glass window in their Tulsa apartment during a fight on June 7, 2011. Joshua Hilberling fell 17 stories to his death, landing on a parking garage.
The widowed murderer will be sentenced April 23 and faces a jury-recommended 25 years in prison.

Normal Families React To Amber Hilberling's Sentencing In Tulsa High-Rise Death

Post by raine1953 on Sat Jun 01, 2013 3:03 am

TULSA, Oklahoma - Amber Hilberling was convicted last month of second degree murder for pushing her husband to his death from a 25th floor window. The jury recommended she serve 25 years in prison and, Tuesday afternoon, the judge agreed.
Judge Kurt Glassco said there is no such thing as a perfect trial, but there are fair trials and he believes this trial was fair to all concerned. He said this case has many victims aside from Josh Hilberling, including Josh's son and the families of both Josh and Amber. He even said he was truly sorry Josh's brother, who was serving in Afghanistan at the time, learned of Josh's death through Facebook.

Ultimately, the judge said the jury worked hard and he would honor their decision.

Amber's mother, Rhonda Whitlock, took the witness stand to tell the judge that Amber's family loves and supports her, will keep fighting for her and will raise her little boy, Levi, until Amber comes home. Whitlock told the judge Josh Hilberling's death was a terrible accident.

Amber's family believes a terrible injustice has been done.

"The whole thing is a tragic accident," said Amber's stepfather, Bryan Whitlock. "We had a son, father, husband who was lost. Convicting and sending an innocent person to jail does not get revenge, does not bring Josh back. We will continue to fight until true justice is served."

Amber also took the stand to read a statement that first thanked the judge, then acknowledged the grief Josh's family is going through and offered them her condolences and, in her words, her most genuine apology.

She also thanked her family for their support and told her son, who was not in the courtroom, she loved him and he would also be with her, even in her dreams. Finally, she said she trusted God and was praying for everyone involved.

Her family cried during the hearing.

"My heart breaks for everyone involved," Rhonda Whitlock said.

As for Josh's family, this was another in a string of long, horrible days, filled with tears and unspeakable grief. They said it didn't bring them happiness or peace, just a hope they might be able to begin healing.

"We want our lives back. We want to remember Josh. He had a lot of friends, touched a lot of lives," said his stepmother Jeanne Hilberling.

As for Amber's apology, Josh's family said, perhaps had it come sooner, it may have meant more, but their focus has been on enduring the worst nightmare of their lives: the loss of their firstborn child.

"This has been the hardest thing for me, my wife, my family - all of us - friends. We've lost a son, they've lost a daughter--nobody won. It's the hardest thing anyone has to go through," said Josh's father, Patrick Hilberling.

Well known Tulsa attorney Clark Brewster announced Tuesday he will be handling Amber Hilberling's appeal, and is hoping for a new trial based partly on evidence that was withheld from the jury about why the couple was fighting the day Josh was killed.

In addition to the $10,000 fine levied by the jury, the judge also ordered Amber to reimburse Josh's family for the $6,000 in funeral expenses.
