Charlie says he had it all … a beautiful wife of 23 years, a good job, nice cars, and a big house on the water. But Charlie says his world was rocked on May 2, 2002 when his wife, Leslie, was kidnapped by Charlie’s friend and former employee. Leslie escaped with some injuries but lived to tell about it.
Two days later, Charlie found Leslie dead at the bottom of the stairs in their home. Seven years after his wife’s death, in January of 2009, Charlie was arrested and charged with murder. Authorities believed Charlie’s motive was that he was having an affair with a bartender named Carolyn, whom he lavished with gifts.
Charlie, who was found not guilty of murder, speaks out for the first time. Carolyn says the stigma of being the reported mistress of an accused murderer has taken a toll on her. Hear what she says she is being accused of now. Carolyn and Charlie, who both deny having an affair, come face to face for the first time in over two years.
