Stella Nickell was sentenced to 90 years in prison in 1988 for killing her husband and another woman with cyanide-laced Excedrin.

  • Hear from prosecutors, investigators and others close to the case.
  • Examine the evidence suggesting an innocent woman was sacrificed to make a political point.
  • Go behind the headlines that spurred a nationwide panic.


On June 18, 1988, Stella Nickell was sentenced to 90 years in federal prison for product tampering, killing her husband and a woman with cyanide-laced Excedrin. The Nickell trial was the first time the government obtained a conviction for this newly codified crime. But was the result supported by the evidence?

AMERICAN JUSTICE® examines every aspect of this remarkable case, from the death of Stella's husband--originally determined to be from natural causes--to her ongoing efforts to clear her name and win her freedom.

Examine the many questions that remain unanswered, such as why Stella would make the phone call that made her a suspect, and whether there were ulterior motives behind the highly-publicized trial.

Filled with the testimony of legal experts and those close to the case, THE EXCEDRIN MURDERS is a dose intrigue for true-crime buffs.
