My thoughts, too, and I think it might have played some, albeit small, role in the jury's decision. On the other hand, she certainly didn't "deserve" to be murdered, so I have some qualms about my reaction. I'm probably going to get blasted for saying this, but even if he did kill her, I doubt very much that he represents any danger to society, or to another woman, so I think people can live with the "not guilty" verdict. Sometimes I'd like to see the addition of the Scottish "not proven" verdict to the U.S. justice system. The Blake case would certainly fall into that category.
