On November 29th, 1992, Sara Tokars was shot in the head at point-blank range in front of her two young children. A tip soon led to the arrest of the gunman, who confessed that he had been hired by a business partner of the victim's husband, Fred Tokars, a high-profile Atlanta attorney.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® relates how the investigation soon focused on Mr. Tokars, exposing two reasons why he might want to have his wife killed: a $2 million insurance policy and Sara's plan to file for divorce.
With the help of former Cobb County District Attorney Tom Charron and attorneys for the defense, along with reporters who covered the case, THE WIFE WHO KNEW TOO MUCH traces the long process that ended with Mr. Tokars' conviction for malice murder, racketeering, drug dealing and money laundering. He is now serving a life sentence in the Federal Penitentiary at Sheradan, Oregon.
Afraid of being exposed for the crimes he helped commit, he chose instead to become a murderer.
