TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Tulsa County Jail inmate says a woman charged with killing her husband by pushing him out a high-rise apartment window admitted to shoving the man while he was “off-guard.”

Inmate Bonnie Fulton testified Thursday in the second-degree murder trial of Amber Hilberling. Fulton said Hilberling told her while the two were jailed together that she shoved Joshua Hilberling during an argument when Joshua Hilberling was off his guard.

Defense attorneys attempted to discredit Fulton as a “convicted known liar.”

Amber Hilberling has said her husban's fall was a “tragic accident” and defense attorneys say she acted in self-defense.

Hilberling rejected a plea deal offered by prosecutors last week and faces up to life in prison if convicted.
