Whatever happened to Michele Rene Smith?

One of the new cases I posted today was Alexander M. Smith, who disappeared from Virginia Beach in 2000. I learned that his wife, Michele, was charged with his murder in 2005. And then, nothing. I couldn’t find anything about a trial. I wrote that Michele was still awaiting trial and that is quite conceivable — murder cases always take forever to get through the system. But maybe the charges against her were dismissed. I simply don’t know and don’t know how to find out. Looking for a “Michele Smith” brings to mind the old needle/haystack thing
