Accused in Appalachia.
Examines a case that has been traveling through the Virginia criminal justice system for 10 years. In 1993, Merry Pease claimed that her husband shot her, but authorities charged that she killed her husband and then shot herself to make it appear as if her husband had shot her. Pease was indicted three times, convicted twice and was in and out of jail throughout this long ordeal. She maintains her innocence to this day.
