Three trials. Two husbands. One woman.
Raynella Dossett Leath is a 70-year-old grandmother living quietly on a 15-acre farm in the Karns community of Knox County, Tennessee. Her life has been far from quiet. She has survived death – two husbands and a son – and prison. She might be a two-time "black widow" who had a third victim in her crosshairs. Despite being convicted once, she is a free woman.
In "Suspicion," we will take you through the deaths of Leath's two husbands, her trials and how she managed to escape a life sentence.

Reorder the Episodes
It’s a captivating story, but Apple doesn’t follow them well because they’re out of order. So it’s a “hands-on” listening experience. Which isn’t what I was looking for. But the story, so far (4 episodes in) is quite interesting.
I work in the law field and this was a good story.
Very good and I wish there were more local stories.
