ACCUSED comic book killer Michael George and his wife Barbara were constantly at each other's throats, a witness told his murder trial in Detroit. Michael George , 51, is charged with the July 13, 1990 murder of Barbara, found dead inside their comic book shop.
Kim Koliba--who didn't actually know the couple personally--says she overheard at least 30 of the pair's arguments in the summer of 1990. Koliba worked at a nail salon in a strip mall near the comic store owned by the Georges, testified about a July 13, 1990, spat over money between the pair with a tone more disturbing than the
rest.She said: "The argument that day was a different-than-normal argument. It was much louder. He was much angrier. It seemed more violent."Four hours later Barbara was dead with a bullet in her brain. George was convicted in 2008. A judge granted a new trial later that year, citing prosecutorial misconduct and potential new evidence.The motive: money, she was overweight and he was having an affair--with one of their employees.
