Farah Fratta was shot in the head twice by a masked assailant when leaving her garage on November 9, 1994. Fratta had been embroiled in a messy divorce, and suspicion soon centered on her husband.

THE BRIT AND THE BODYBUILDER reports that detectives discovered that Farah's divorce papers alleged that Bob was a sexual deviant and a threat to their children's safety.

After a six-month investigation police found enough evidence to arrest Fratta and two men he'd allegedly hired. All three were convicted and sentenced to death, though they continue to profess their innocence.
