October 23, 1989. Boston, Massachusetts. A man and his wife pull up to a stoplight. Just minutes earlier they had left a hospital after attending a birthing class. Things were looking up for them. They were financially well off and expecting their first child. But, according to the husband, they were intercepted at the stoplight by a robber who decided to shoot them before leaving. The husband was Charles Stuart who called police on his car phone to report the shooting. He had been shot in his side and Carol was shot in the head. As the people of Boston became aware of the incident a rage swelled. Carol Stuart, Charles' wife, died. Weeks later, her child died as well. But police had a description of the killer and they stopped at nothing in their pursuit of justice. After an arrest is made in the case, one of Charles' brothers comes forward with shocking information. Charles Stuart had killed his own wife and shot himself to sell the robbery gone wrong story to the police. Did they arrest the wrong man?
