Default Nancy Seaman Granted New Trial

Now, this I don't get. Nancy Seaman was convicted a few years ago for clobbering her husband with a knife and then an axe. Her defense was that she killed him because he battered her.

Now she's getting a new trial on the grounds that the prosecution never proved she's the one who killed him.

Can someone explain to me why these this didn't get laughed out of court?
