& # 39; I don't blame everyone, I say it's my fault my husband is dead. I do not know what more I could take responsibility & # 39 ;, Smart says in a clip from the new episode of Dateline & # 39 therefor; s Deadly Secret which is broadcast Mondays at 22:00.

& # 39; There are many things that contributed to this opinion, the media, the judge all the things that have happened, but know where it comes down to, as I would never have had this relationship, he would still be alive and. # 39;

She adds: & # 39; So that's why I know I'm responsible. & # 39;

Smart refers to her relationship with student Billy Flynn, the teenager who claims to have killed Gregg Smart at Pamela's request.

That is the responsibility that Smart will not accept, and insists that she had no intention of having her husband murdered in 1990 after a year of marriage.

Andrea Canning points to Smart at some point: & # 39; I think they are looking for a different responsibility. & # 39;

Smart therefore seems astonished, despite the fact that this is the central point of all her interviews in recent years.

& # 39; I don't know if there will be enough now, ever in this case & # 39 ;, Smart explains.

& # 39; I mean, people just pretend I'm in jail, like my twenties, thirties, forties and forties now have not lost. & # 39;

She then asked: & # 39; When is enough punishment enough? & # 39;

It all started on August 1, 1990, three months after her husband was found dead in their home, and she was arrested for being an accessory to his murder

In a now famous recording, the arresting officer said to the widow: & Well, Pam, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that we have solved your husband's murder. The bad news is that you have been arrested. & # 39;

The murder and the trial later formed the basis for the critically acclaimed film To Die For from 1995, with Nicole Kidman, a character inspired by Smart.

Smart is now in the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in New York, where she will spend the rest of her life.

It is now almost three decades after a jury has determined that the former media services director at Winnacunnet High School in New Hampshire has convinced Flynn to pull the trigger.

& # 39; I didn't want him to do that. I didn't ask him, & Smart continued to say Smart, uttering exact words in the few interviews she has done so far.

Her husband's family has also been repeating herself for three decades and stated that she would consider supporting Smart & # 39; s request for conditional release if she admitted she was responsible for the murder assignment.

On May 1, 1990, Flynn, then 16, and 17-year-old Patrick Randall entered the Smarts & Derry condominium and forced Gregg, an insurance company representative, to his knees in the foyer while another friend waited outside in a flight car.

While Randall held a knife to the man's throat, Flynn shot him in the head.

The Smart family appeared on Flynn's conditional hearing, with Gregg & # 39; s brother Dean said; & # 39; I hope he does something wonderful with his life. & # 39;

Both he and brother Rick said they believed Flynn had served his time and should be released.
