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.
