Plot Synopsis

Using re-enactments and first-person interviews, SCORNED: LOVE KILLS uncovers the dark side of love with a voyeuristic peek into the lust and obsession that fueled some of the most senseless, but definitely not emotionless, crimes to make front-page headlines. The love crimes include everything from dalliances to love triangles: in Fayetteville, NC, David and Joan Shannon hid a secret double life as members of an underground swingers' club when Joan fell in love with another swinger and pressured her 15-year-old daughter to murder her stepfather before David could kill her new love; in Philadelphia, PA, Craig and Stefanie Rabinowitz led a charmed life until Craig fell for a high-end strip-club dancer and later made a frantic 911 call to report finding Stefanie dead of an apparent accidental drowning -- except she showed signs of strangulation; in Winston-Salem, NC, Renee Poole grew tired of her house-wife life with her high-school sweetheart Brent and took a job as a dancer at the local gentleman's club, where she fell in love with another man and Brent was soon gunned down on his wedding anniversary; in Derry, NH, Pamela Smart, who grew tired of her husband Gregg's new corporate lifestyle, seduced her 15-year-old student, Billy Flynn, and instructed Billy and his accomplices to stage a burglary as cover, leading to murderous consequences; and many more stories of love, lust and obsession that has fueled horrible crimes. This series returned for its second season on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 10pm ET, with a premiere episode that featured the story of Sheila Davalloo, who started an affair with co-worker Nelson Sessler.

Then, in the night's second episode, "Funeral Homewrecker," mortician Michael Roseboro begins an intense affair with a neighbor named Angela behind his wife Jan's back.

In the season opener, "Northern Exposure," Ruby and John Ruffolo's marriage is threatened when John's legal troubles drive him to multiple infidelities.
