Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this fact-based made-for-television drama, a woman accused of murder remembers the events leading up to her predicament while awaiting judgment from the court. Laurie Kellog's ordeal began when she was only 16. Bruce Kellog was 31, handsome, charming and fascinating. She fell in love, and when he asked her to move in with him, she did. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to her, she would have had no choice in the matter, for darling Bruce had actually purchased her from her stepfather for $500. The couple are not together long before Mr. Charming turns into an abusive, wife-beating toad. After enduring constant battering, something inside Laurie snapped. Now she stands accused of hiring four teens to kill her husband.
