Woman Convicted Of Killing Husband After Parrot Witnessed Murder: “Don’t (Expletive) Shoot”

Bud's owner was shot to death, and the parrot allegedly repeated the phrase in his voice.

A pet parrot seemingly witnessed the murder of its owner in Michigan. Glenna Duram, 49, was convicted this week of first degree murder in the fatal shooting of her husband, 46-year-old Martin Duram. In 2015, he was shot five times before Glenna Duram attempted suicide, according to Associated Press.

Martin Duram’s ex-wife, Christina Keller, took ownership of Bud, an African Grey parrot, after the shooting. She has claimed that Bud repeated “don’t (expletive) shoot” in Martin Duram’s voice. His parents said it was possible that Bud was repeating the man’s last words, the BBC reported. The victim's mother said the parrot has "the filthiest mouth around."

The bird was not used in any of the court proceedings.
