David and Michelle Hurley were going through a divorce but continued to live in the same home. He died in a hospital a few weeks later.

Defense lawyers argued that David Hurley was very drunk when they argued and his wife claimed she acted in self-defense during a September 2015 argument in their Bayonne home.

She was convicted of aggravated assault and weapons offenses during her first trial, but the jury deadlocked on a homicide charge. She was then convicted of reckless manslaughter at her second trial last March.
