Abortion doctor guilty of murdering wife
The conviction of Oklahoma City abortionist John Hamilton in the 2001 Valentine’s Day murder of his wife Susan Hamilton will be examined on “True Crime with Aphrodite Jones” in an episode titled “Loved to Death,” airing at 9 p.m. Monday on Investigation Discovery.
Hamilton performed abortions at the Oklahoma Clinic for Women in Oklahoma City, OK. Hamilton was found guilty in the Valentine’s Day killing of his wife, Susan Hamilton, 55. Her nude body was found lying in blood in the master bathroom of the Hamiltons’ Quail Creek home, her skull fractured and face disfigured. She had been choked with a necktie and beaten to death.
Hamilton was found guilty in the Valentine’s Day killing of his wife, Susan Hamilton, 55. Her nude body was found lying in blood in the master bathroom of the Hamiltons’ Quail Creek home, her skull fractured and face disfigured. She had been choked with a necktie and beaten to death.
News Reports of the case indicated that Hamilton’s wife had suspected the abortionist of having an affair with a topless dancer who may have been a patient of the doctor’s. His wife was considering leaving him and talking of divorce two days before the murder.
Authorities noted that after Hamilton murdered his wife he then called 911 to report the death. Authorities found the woman dead on the couple’s master bedroom floor.
He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in the murder of his wife and was ordered to pay $11,104 for the cost of his incarceration. Following his murder conviction, Oklahoma and Tennessee revoked his medical license and on September 19, 2003, Hamilton voluntarily surrendered his Georgia license.
In 2010, NewsOk.com reported (In TV interview, Oklahoma doctor says he didn’t kill wife, BY KEN RAYMOND, March 27, 2010) that John Baxter Hamilton, an Oklahoma City physician convicted of murdering his wife on Valentine’s Day 2001, proclaimed his innocence in a prison interview that aired Friday on “Dateline NBC.”
“I didn’t do it,” he said. “I didn’t kill Susan.”
Hamilton, 62, was an Oklahoma City obstetrician, gynecologist and abortionist. On Feb. 14, 2001, he phoned 911 to report finding his wife in the master bathroom of their Quail Creek home.
Susan Hamilton, 55, had been strangled with two neckties and beaten. Her husband was arrested that day and later charged with her murder.
Hamilton maintained his innocence throughout his trial, which may have turned on dramatic testimony from the final witness in the case.
Tom Bevel, a blood spatter expert hired by the defense, testified on cross examination that the “most probable” explanation for blood inside Hamilton’s shirt sleeve was that he had struck his wife with a blunt object.
With that revelation, the defense expert became the star witness for the trial’s prosecution.
“It was a shock to everybody,” Hamilton said on the news program.
“Nobody expected that to happen.”
On “Dateline NBC,” as in his legal appeals, Hamilton criticized Bevel and the accuracy of his blood spatter analysis, which Hamilton called “junk science.”
His attorneys have claimed that police had improper contact with Bevel, who is a former police officer, during the trial. Bevel and prosecutors have denied those allegations.
“He (Hamilton) was really clinging to the defense lines that the blood result was not the way it was interpreted,” Dennis Murphy, a “Dateline NBC” reporter, told The Oklahoman on Wednesday. “Blood spatter is not an exact science, and Bevel had gone over to the dark side on him. He has not given an inch in that regard.”
Murphy said Hamilton still has the “command authority” of a physician and chatted about vacationing in Italy “as if he was still in touch with the outside world.”
Hamilton is serving a life sentence without possibility of parole at the state penitentiary in McAlester.
