There has been some recent filings with the Wisconsin Supreme Court of Appeal in the Mark Jensen Murder conviction. To date all filings have been pre-appeal motions. To see the filing click here. The due date for these next filings are May 19, 2009. Katfishponders will continue to follow this case as it moves through the appeal process and update this blog when there is any activity.

Mark Jensen is a Kenosha WI. man who sits in jail, facing life in prison with no chance for parole. Jensen, 48 was found guilty on February 21, 2008 for the 1998 poisoning death of his wife Julie Jensen, 40. Prosecutors alleged that Jensen was having an affair and poisoned his wife so he could be free of her. The defense says Julie Jensen was despondent about the affair, killed herself and tried to frame her husband.

  1. Please keep our readers updated on the appeal.

  2. I sure will Legal Pub! These filings are pre-appeal motions, so we have a way to go yet. I'm keeping an eye on it. ;-)

  3. katfish, do you know if the lovely present Mrs Jensen has filed for divorce yet. She didn't strike me as a stand by your man kind of gal.
    ps: thanks for the update and your help in getting that bill defeated.

  4. Hello September,
    I haven't heard of a divorce...yet. I have a feeling being married doesn't make a difference to this Mrs. Jensen. I can't believe I'm saying this....Mr. Jensen probably wouldn't mind her fooling around as long as she provided pics for his collection.ew!

    On a brighter note, I was happy that HB45 was defeated in IL. I hope if any Bills come up like it in other states it is defeated as well.

  5. It appears Kelly was granted a default judgment of divorce from Mark Jensen on 10/09/2009. I'm pretty sure it's them. If you look on the main page, Mark's address is listed as DCI (Dodge Correctional Institution).

  6. Hey Anon Jan 4,
    Thanks for that url! Yes, It sure looks like the dastardly duo have parted ways. Too bad they didn't see fit to allow Julie to live and raise her boys. They could have still been together. This case bothers me like very few that I have senseless, so demented and so tragic. IMO Mark and Kelly have a lifetime of bad karma coming their way for all of the people they have hurt.

  7. On December 29 the WSCA ruled Mark jensen's conviction stands. See Dec 2010 archive for links to court's decision.
