Birdie: Hey, can I borrow your mother? My Aunt is coming for dinner and she's always getting on my nerves.
During the trial when Beverly is cross-examining Mrs. Ackerman, her neighbor, she asks if those were her scissors found sticking out of Mrs. Sterner's stomach. That's not where the scissors should have been found. After stabbing Mrs. Sterner with the scissors, Beverly pulled them out and threw them at the husband twice, both times they ended up sticking in the walls, and that is where the scissors would have been found when the police arrived.
Despite the opening claiming that the film is based on a true story; based on court testimony, sworn declarations, and interviews and the assurance no one involved in the crimes received financial compensation; it is entirely fictional.
