I remember I was living in Dallas when this was on TV news, seemed like a monster had attacked this woman in her home. How many people have affairs and things get so out of hand ??? bad... this is the ultimate of bad that develops from the situation.
I also remember a story of a Dallas man found shot with his girlfriend in his car, under a bridge somewhere. It was an affair and the husband of the woman found out. Some things do have bad endings.

What a lot of people don't know is that Candy Montgomery was found innocent she moved to Georgia and became a FAMILY COUNSELOR! Can you believe it?
Her advice: If you can't work things out...go find an axe! lol

They made a made for tv movie about it. It was called 'A Killing In A Small Town'. Made in Dallas believe it or not staring Brian Dennehy as the cop on the case. I think it's on dvd

Yes the movie is on dvd. I own it. Great to show when out of towners come for a visit. Got it at Video Hits on Kirby. Only 9.99, I think.
