They are cases fraught with emotional intensity and dogged by controversy, and they are all too common examine three incidents of marriage and murder.
The abused wife who finally snaps and kills her husband, a husband who murders his wife in hopes of cashing in on insurance, a woman who walks in on her husband cheating. Murder cases where one spouse kills the other are all-too-common in AMERICAN JUSTICE®.
MARRIAGE & MURDER examines three such cases in a troubling look at this difficult and controversial issue. A federal investigator, a federal prosecutor and a former ATF agent help shed light on the case of Debra Hartmann. Players on both sides of the Steve Seinberg trial, including lawyers for the defense and prosecution and the presiding judge, recall the emotions and revelations exposed in court. And hear directly from Charlene Brundidge, granted clemency by New York Governor George Pataki despite a 20 year sentence for murder, because of the long history of abuse she suffered at her husband's hand.
MARRIAGE & MURDER is an eye-opening look at one of the most difficult areas of justice in America today, where highly-charged emotional issues and charges of misogyny cloud the truth.
