On Christmas Eve 1959, Charles Roy Clark, was killed by a single gunshot wound to his right temple. Police were baffled. Charles was beloved in his community. He taught Sunday school, was a scout troop leader, a great employee, and a loving father and husband. He seemed to have a perfect life. But did he? Police uncovered a dirty little secret.

The police claimed he killed Charles so he could be with Lois. The prosecutor thought he had an easy conviction. He was wrong.
