Description

The true story of a Texas cop and wife-killer--and the unbelievable perversions of justice that almost set him free.
On July 6th, 2002, schoolteacher Virginia "Viki" Lozano, mother of an eleven-month-old and wife of a Denton, Texas, police officer, died from a gunshot wound the day after her sixteenth wedding anniversary. Her husband, Bobby, claimed that she must have been cleaning his gun and it went off. In bed. In the middle of the night. While she was lying down. Despite his being a known lothario and serial adulterer, authorities still wondered: Could Bobby Lozano, one of their own, really have committed such a crime?
In a startling twist, Viki's mother not only stood by her son-in-law, but continued to share a home with him, even after he was indicted for the murder of her own daughter. Even more shocking, the indictment was vacated when the DA, in a sworn affidavit, said that the medical examiner had changed his mind and ruled the death a suicide. Case closed.
For six long years the case languished in limbo...until one reporter discovered that the DA's affidavit was full of lies, and her expose blew the lid off the case. The fight to avenge Viki's brutal murder was just beginning.
