About the show

What motivates a person to commit murder? The reasons, of course, are numerous -- jealousy, revenge, money matters and tangled heartstrings are often prominent among them -- but "Deadly Wives" takes the senselessness a step further. It tells real stories of women who one day decide that the husbands they vowed to love and honor for all days are now their worst enemies, and so murder plots are hatched and executed to perfection. "To have and to hold ... until death do us part."

Love Covers a Multitude of Sins

Teresa Stone is a traditional wife and mother of two in Independence, Missouri. Everyone in town knows that Randy, Teresa s husband, dotes on her--and the couple faithfully attends church together and own a successful local insurance agency. So when Randy is shot and killed in his office, the quiet community is stunned: who would want to kill such a likable family guy--a deacon, bus driver, and devoted member of New Hope Baptist church? While friends and family are shocked, Teresa remains surprisingly calm. As detectives begin to unravel the unusual case, they learn that sex, lies and greed are just a few of Teresa s unholy secrets, and each sinful revelation brings them one step closer to finding Randy s killer.
