Plot Synopsis

Using interviews with family, friends, law enforcement and potential victims -- as well as public court documents of divorce and court proceedings -- FATAL VOWS features Dr. Brian Russell and Stacy Kaiser, as they reveal the criminal psychology of why some people choose murder over divorce. In each 60-minute episode, Dr. Brian Russell, an attorney and clinical psychologist, and Stacy Kaiser, a licensed psychotherapist and relationship expert, examine the couple featured and provide analysis on marriages that break down to the point that divorce and murder collide. The premiere episode focused on Bob and Becky Klosterman, who were the perfect couple -- Bob was a retired Navy commander and Becky was a stay-at-home wife -- but in private, Becky suffered and even feared for her own life.
