Eric and Ann Miller were two attractive, intelligent, successful people who met at Purdue University and married in 1993.  In December, 2000, Eric died of arsenic poisoning.  Over the next 4 years, investigators would find out that Ann wasn't who she seemed.  To the astonishment of everyone who knew the couple, Eric was murdered through a viscous plot developed by his wife, Ann.

The details of this case are fascinating, from the psychosocial aspects of love and infidelity to the forensics of arsenic levels from hair samples.

On May 1, 1990, Pamela Smart came home from a work meeting to find her condominium ransacked and her husband, Gregg, dead and bleeding on the floor. Police initially said that the crime scene looked like an interrupted burglary. Later, it was determined that Pamela Smart seduced 15-year-old Billy Flynn and threatened to stop having sex with him unless he killed her husband. Flynn killed Gregg with the help of his friends Pete Randall, J.R. Lattime, and Raymond Fowler. Billy shot Greggory Smart as Randall held him down, while Lattime, the driver, waited in the getaway car outside with Fowler.

During the investigation, J.R. Lattime's father brought his .38 caliber pistol he had found freshly cleaned in his house to the police, believing it might have been the murder weapon. An anonymous tip also indicated that a teenager named Cecilia Pierce was aware of the murder plot.

That was 26 years ago.  Join us as we go over the horrible crime, the sensational trial, and what has happened in the years since Pam's conviction.

Body Heat is a dramatic film noir set in the hot atmosphere of Miranda Beach, Florida. The alluring, crafty, and sultry femme fatale "Matty Walker" (Kathleen Turner) seduces corruptible, dim-witted and incompetent attorney Ned Racine (William Hurt), to convince him to kill her husband Edmund (Richard Crenna). Matty uses everything as an instrument of seduction, including incredibly sweaty and sexy love-making and lewd suggestive dialogue, to manipulate his emotions so that he will help plot the murder.

So this is the perfect send off for our Killer Wives series.  Dick brings in some Jai Alai for his review and our refreshment!

It was a crime that made national headlines. A Texas man was found dead and the only person who knew what happened was his wife.

At his home in an upscale gated community, Greg Williams was shot in the head. Police took their only witness, his wife Michele Williams, to the police station, where she told them an intruder in black clothing hit her and shot her husband.  But soon after arriving at the home, police became suspicious.

Confronted by police, Michele Williams changed her story. She then said her husband committed suicide. Police released Michele Williams, but she was later arrested and then indicted by a grand jury in the murder of her husband.

Michele accepted a plea deal in which she pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and deadly conduct in her husband’s shooting. But before the deal went through it was revoked.  Was it her desire for the limelight that did her in?

Kelsie Jean Schelling lived in Larimer Square in Denver, Colorado. On February 4, 2013, when she was 21 years old, she went to Pueblo to meet her boyfriend and was never heard from again.

Kelsie had just learned she was 8 weeks pregnant with her boyfriend Donthe Lucus' child the day before. On February 4th, Donthe lured her to his hometown of Pueblo, telling her he had a surprise for her which would "put her in a better mood." 

When Donthe first heard that Kelsie was pregnant he was angry with her.  When Kelsie disappeared from Pueblo and her car was found abandoned in a hospital parking lot, Donthe was seen on camera using Kelsie's ATM card to withdraw $400 from her account.  The police did not find his telling of the events to be truthful.

Jill and Dick will discuss the facts in Kelsie's disappearance along with widespread concerns that Kelsie has not been found and no arrests have been made.

Without telling anyone of her plans, Amy removed Timmothy from his kindergarten class at Greenman Elementary School on the morning of May 11, 2011.After checking him out of school, she drove to an auto repair shop and dropped off her blue 2004 Ford Expedition SUV at 10:00 a.m.

One of the repair shop employees drove Amy and Timmothy to the Brookfield Zoo. At 3:00 p.m., Amy came to pick up her repaired vehicle and drove with Timmothy to the KeyLime Cove Resort in Gurnee, Illinois, where they spent the night.

Meanwhile, James had reported Timmothy & Amy missing after he went to pick up Timmothy from kindergarten and found out his mother had taken him. He called her cellular phone numerous times but got no answer. Two days later, Amy was found dead and no one knew where to find Timmothy.

In 1989, Carol and Charles Stuart were expecting their first child. After a childbirth education class at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, the couple was driving home when, according to Charles Stuart, a black gunman with a raspy voice forced his way into their car, robbed them and shot Charles in the stomach and Carol in the head. Carol Stuart died just hours after the shooting and her premature son, delivered by emergency C-section, died 17 days later. The nearby African-American community was targeted by police in an urgent search for the assailant. It wasn't until Charles Stuart's brother came forward as an accomplice after the fact that police sought out Charles Stuart as a suspect. After Stuart fled and committed suicide, police released the African-American suspect they had in custody. Evidence led to the conclusion that Charles Stuart had, in fact, plotted and killed Carol Stuart, shooting himself to avoid suspicion. The events surrounding this case left a negative mark on race relations in the city of Boston, a legacy still not wholly forgotten.

Drew Peterson is a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since 2007. Stacy's disappearance led police to reopen the Kathleen Savio case.  On September 6, 2012, Drew Peterson was found guilty of the premeditated murder of Kathleen Savio, his third wife. Jurors admitted that the most compelling evidence was based on the hearsay statements allowed under "Drew's Law."  On February 21, 2013, Judge Edward Burmila refused to grant Peterson a new trial.   On February 9, 2015, the Illinois Attorney General announced that Peterson would be charged with two felonies, solicitation of murder and solicitation of murder for hire, for attempting to have Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow killed. He was convicted on May 31, 2016, and sentenced to an additional 40 years on July 29, 2016. Drew Peterson had 4 wives.  He murdered one and another is missing.  How did this happen and how were investigators finally able to put him away?

Gone Girl is a psychological thriller, released in 2014, which invited critical acclaim, feminist praise and disfavor, and widespread public interest. Based on the book of the same name by Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl is the story of Amy Dunne, a wife who goes missing under suspicious circumstances, her guilty-appearing husband, and the modern media.  Twists and turns make this movie great fun to watch and great fun to discuss!
