Family Confronts Amy Bosley in Court

When Amy Bosley walked into a Campbell County courtroom Thursday afternoon, she gave a slight smile to her family sitting in the front row. It didn't take long for that smile to go away.

During the short hearing, Judge Fred Stine abided by Bosley's plea agreement, and sentenced the Campbell County woman to 20 years in prison for murdering her husband, Bobby last May. But not before Bobby's mother, sister, and brother got time to confront her.

Bobby's brother, James, was direct.  "You have no respect for life," he said. "You are a liar and a fake."

His sister, Debra Webb, wanted to know what Bobby's final moments were like.  "Did he yell out for you to stop? We'll never know," she said, looking at Amy face to face.

And Bobby's mother, Audrey Bosley, read a letter to her son. "I didn't get to see my son. I didn't get to tell him goodbye," she said.

Amy, wearing a green and white jail jumpsuit, mostly looked down at the ground and wiped away tears as her in-laws spoke. Judge Stine told her the "horror" she created would end up hurting her own children the most.

The Bosley's 7 and 10-year-old children were in the home when Amy shot Bobby six times while he slept. She told police a man broke in through a glass door, got into a shouting match with Bobby, then shot him.

But prosecutors say the Bosley children told a different story. They were upstairs and heard what happened. If the case would have gone to trial, they would have been the key witnesses, and prosecutors say they would have contradicted every part of their mother's story.

"The children would've testified the breaking of the glass happened after the gunshot, so they were critical, critical witnesses," Campbell County Commonwealth Attorney, Jack Porter says. "And there wasn't any way around putting them on the stand."

But Bobby's parents, who are now taking care of the children, didn't want that to happen. They say it was them, not Amy, who pushed for the plea deal.

"Amy didn't care if those kids were on the stand," James Bosley says. "She don't even care about them today. She could care less about them kids. She's not even a mother in my eyes."

The Bosley's say the deal was the right thing to do, even though they wish Amy could spend the rest of her life in prison.
