Michele Williams, a Texas wife and mother, was arrested for killing her millionaire husband Greg Williams. She first told police an intruder had broken into their home and shot her husband Greg, a computer engineer. But during her hours-long interview with the police, she changed the story and said Greg had committed suicide. She said she tried to make it look like a crime scene so her 4-year-old daughter wouldn’t think her father killed himself.
Investigators didn’t buy either of Michele’s stories. But there were no fingerprints and no DNA. They offered Michele a plea deal (18 years in prison). Right before she took the deal she did an interview with 48 Hours and when asked if she killed her husband, she said, “No, I did not.” She also revealed that she now knows who the murderer is. After the interview aired on TV, the judge hauled Michele back in court and withdrew the plea. In 2014, Williams was sentenced to 60 years in prison. 48 Hours has even more to report about Michele Williams including a suspicion that she may have killed her friend’s husband and staged it as a suicide. 48 Hours airs Tuesdays at 10pm on CBS.
