The story of Stacey Castor a.k.a. The Black Widow unfolded on "Blood, Lies & Alibis" (Mon., 9 p.m. ET on ID) via re-enactments. Stacey was convicted of a heinous string of crimes, including attempting to frame and murder her daughter.
It started with the murder of Stacey's husband, David, who died from ingesting antifreeze. When the investigation started circling Stacey as the possible culprit, her daughter suddenly wound up in the hospital of an apparent suicide attempt. A suicide note she allegedly wrote said that she had killed David Castor.
But Stacey's daughter did not die, and when she awoke, she said that she did not try to commit suicide. Instead, the police put surveillance on Stacey and learned that she had crushed pills, put them in her daughter's drink and then typed the letter herself.
With suspicion that Stacey also played a hand in the death of her first husband, prosecutors went hard on this case, and got Stacey put behind bars with a sentence of 51 years. Throughout the investigation, trial, conviction and now sentence, Stacey has maintained her innocence and intends to appeal the verdict.
