An affair with a cardiologist puts a home-wrecking nurse on trial for murder.
- Hosted by Bill Kurtis, AMERICAN JUSTICE goes from the precinct house to the courtroom.
- A detailed investigation of the murder of Dr. David Stephens.
- Features detailed interviews with police, prosecutors and defense attorneys.
David Stephens was a prominent cardiologist who was struggling with health problems when he died early in 2001. By May of that year, detectives had come to suspect that his death was not the result of illness, and suspicion soon centered on his wife, Stephanie.
THE DOCTOR'S WIFE details the investigation into Stephens' murder with the help of the detectives who directed it. See how their suspicions were fueled when Stephanie, a surgical nurse, claimed to have no knowledge of the anesthetic found in Stephens' blood during the autopsy, and how investigations into her past revealed a classic "home-wrecker" who had broken up David's first marriage after 25 years.
Filled with crime scene photos and commentary from those close to the case, AMERICAN JUSTICE® details every aspect of the investigation that led to Stephanie's arrest, two months after she had married again.
