Iranian Woman Still in Peril: Update I

More information is coming out about the Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, who also may have murdered her husband.  Iranian TV showed a re-enactment, with the actual woman.  Initially, she was convicted for having relationships with 2 men after her husband's murder, then she was convicted of adultery, and after being tortured she confessed to the murder.  It appears that the man who supposedly helped her kill her husband is not in jail.  This whole thing is crazy.  Ahmadinejad is even claiming that the adultery sentence was not to be stoned to death.

It sounds like, after her husband was killed, she decided to mess around a bit, and got caught.  One of the above articles even suggested that maybe she was convicted of murder because there would be too much outcry if she was stoned to death for adultery.  I hate it when governments legislate morality.
