FOX23 has obtained pictures and videos used as evidence in the state’s case against Amber Hilberling.

In March, a jury convicted Hilberling of 2nd degree murder for the death of her husband, Josh. He died after being pushed out of a high rise apartment in downtown Tulsa.

FOX23’s Adam Paluka went through the evidence, including an hour long video of Hilberling in a TPD interrogation room with her grandmother while she waits to be interviewed by police.

“Hilberling: Doesn't that make me guilty?
Hilberling’s grandmother: No that makes the lawyer do his job.”

Later in the video Hilberling also makes incriminating statements.

Hilberling: I wonder if his parents know yet… they were right, they kept saying if we stay together I am going to kill him.”

Including in the released evidence are 50 photos taken at the crime scene on June 7th, 2011. The photos show Josh and Amber’s apartment and the broken window in the bedroom that Hilberling says broke during a fight and the window that Josh broke when he fell to his death.

“Hilberling: Who could do that, push my husband and make him fall out the window. I just wish I could go back and know that if I pushed him it was going to happen.
Hilberling’s grandmother: Amber, stop saying you pushed him out the window."

Hilberling will be sentenced by a judge in two weeks.

Locking a suspect in a room with a family member and recording what they say for a couple of hours, before letting their lawyer in; you would think this sort of baiting and surveillance would run afoul of civil rights.

Wouldn't her life be better served performing community service speaking against domestic violence? She needs counseling and then to counsel others. I don't believe she intended to cause his death. If they had not lived in this high-rise, the outcome may have been assault and battery, but probably not second-degree murder. My prayers go out to both families.
