Jay Orbin lived to be exactly forty-five years old. He was murdered on September 8, 2004, which was his forty-fifth birthday. It was just over a month later when his decomposing torso was found in a Rubbermaid container in the Phoenix desert.

Everyone would agree that Jay had been kind and hard-working. He was a self-made man and a loving father. Unfortunately, he was married to a conniving and cold-hearted woman who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted. Jay met his future wife, Marjorie, while she was working at a Phoenix strip club. She was just Jay’s type– a beautiful, blonde, big-breasted, exotic dancer. Soon he was calling her “the love of his life.”

Join us at the quiet end for What She Wanted: The Plot to Kill Jay Orbin. Jay and Marjorie married and eventually had a child together. But Marjorie wasn’t cut out for long-term monogamy. She had multiple extramarital affairs while married to Jay and she soon wanted him out of her way. But leaving him was not an acceptable solution for Marjorie, who wanted to keep all of Jay’s money for herself. So, she decided that murder was the only solution.
