From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Margaret Rudin (née Frost, in 1943) is an American woman who was convicted of the murder of her fifth husband, real estate magnate Ronald Rudin.


Early life

Margaret Rudin was born in Memphis, Tennessee, one of three daughters of a barber. Due to financial struggles, the family moved frequently and she had lived in 15 state before graduating from high school [1]. She had been married four times before meeting Ronald Rudin at the First Church of Religious Science in Las Vegas. They married in 1987.


In 2002, the Nevada Supreme Court denied Margaret Rudin's appeal finding she was not denied effective assistance of counsel. (State v. Rudin, 86 P.3d 572 (Nv Sup.Ct. 2004). As of 2008, no record of federal collateral review could be found.

In 2008, Rudin was given a new trial. District Judge Sally Loehrer ruled that attorneys for Margaret Rudin, 65, were not prepared to defend her at her 2001 trial, according to several lawyers on both sides of the case. She also ruled that Rudin's main attorney at the time, Michael Amador, was not effective, said Christopher Oram, Rudin's new attorney.[1]
