According to court documents, her attorneys are expected to fight to have certain statements and medical records tossed out and redacted. Both the prosecution and the defense discussed several phone calls being redacted.

According to the arrest warrant, Redlick called 911 the day after she had a fight with her husband and told operators Michael Redlick had stabbed himself.

“We had an altercation and he stabbed himself and I ran and hid in the bathroom,” she said in the 911 call.” When I came out I was trying to help him and saw he was lying in blood and then I tried to help him and I couldn’t.”

The judge also spent two hours listening to several phone calls Redlick made from jail to various relatives, including her teenage daughter.

In February 2020, Redlick denied a plea deal from state prosecutors, who offered her to plead guilty to manslaughter charges and serve 10 years in prison in addition to five years in prison concurrent with the manslaughter sentence.

She’s facing a second-degree murder charge with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence.
