The sensational divorce case that ended in murder is examined in this episode of AMERICAN JUSTICE®.

Divorce is commonplace in modern America, with half of all marriages eventually ending this way. Occasionally, however, the emotions that inevitably accompany a separation boil over into something more severe.

One of the most extraordinary such cases involved Dan and Elisabeth "Betty" Broderick. Outwardly, it appeared they had the perfect marriage, but then she discovered he was having an affair. In the proceedings that followed, he won custody of the children. And when he remarried, it was more than Betty could take. On November 5, 1989, she murdered her ex-husband and his new wife.

AMERICAN JUSTICE® chronicles the events that led to the tragedy with the help of family members, friends and the lawyers who tried the case. It's a chilling look at jealousy, rage, the line between love and hate, and the troubling role of the justice system in family disputes.
