This week, Kristin tells Mogab about the ax murder of Betty Gore. In a small town in Texas, Candy Montgomery just wanted to have an affair. She wanted something to shake up her boring housewife life, and she set her sights on Betty's husband, Allen. A year later, however, Betty would end up murdered after being struck with an ax over 40 times. How did this happen? How could a petite housewife with no history of violence do something like this? And what would her defense be at trial? And where are they now!?
