Storyline

An apparently devoted wife and mother "accidentally" shoots her husband dead one night. The police are initially satisfied with her story until they learn that her first husband died in a similar manner. As the investigation gets underway, it slowly becomes clear that this God-fearing, pillar of the community has a double life and that she will stop at nothing, even murder, to protect her secrets.

Coach Russell Stager
15 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched the episode on television concerning Coach Stager. I honestly feel for those people, such as Coach Stager's nephew and grandson of Doris Stager, who never got the opportunity to meet him. I was a student of Coach Stager at Durham High School. I couldn't believe what had happened when I first heard it. Coach Stager was always a very nice person. He was sweet-natured, easy-going and genuinely interested in all of the students. To think that this woman ended his life because of money is horrible. She needs to stay in prison for the rest of her life. She doesn't deserve to get paroled. She doesn't deserve to have any kind of life at all. Thank God the Durham County Court System did not let her get away with murder.
