In May of 1992, the citizens of Huntsville, Alabama, were in shock when they heard the news that one of their beloved citizens, Dr. Jack Wilson, had been found brutally beaten and stabbed to death in his home. His wife, Betty Wilson, and her twin sister, Peggy Lowe, were arrested for supposedly hiring a delusional, alcoholic conman to kill Betty's wealthy husband. Betty was tried first, convicted, and sentence to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Peggy was tried and acquitted. The State of Alabama had no case against the twins so the killer was offered a deal. In exchange for his helping in convicting the twins, he would receive life with the possibility of parole instead of the electric chair. The twins were tried on the same weak evidence and the same lying testimony. Why was Betty convicted and Peggy acquitted? Betty was an evil twin. Peggy was a saintly twin. Betty's appeals had been exhausted and all hope of freedom looked dismal until a witness came forward with evidence that Betty had nothing to do with the murder. Unfortunately, the witness was betrayed by a backwoods southern lawyer, a college professor, and a two bit PI.
