Victim’s Apple Watch data used as evidence in murder trial

“Caroline Nilsson was charged with the murder of her mother-in-law, Myrna Nilsson, 57, at their home in September 2016. Nilsson had been found in the streets by her neighbors, with her hands and face bound with tape. At the time, Caroline Nilsson told police that her mother-in-law had been attacked by a group of men following a road rage incident. But her story didn’t align with the information the prosecution learned from the victim’s Apple Watch. Forensic investigators, using the watch’s heart rate data, were able to narrow the moment Myrna Nilsson was attacked to the moment she died in a seven-minute window.”
