Jerry Jones spent a decade behind bars proclaiming his innocence after being convicted of killing his wife. And with the help of his devoted daughters he got a second chance to clear his name.
But as 48 Hours reports, Jones' freedom was short-lived. Two years after his release, he was again facing murder charges.
In 1988, the Jones family seemed to be living the American Dream. Jerry, a successful pharmaceutical salesman, and his wife Lee were raising two teen-age daughters and a young son. But on the night of Dec. 3, Lee Jones met a gruesome fate when she was stabbed to death as she prepared to take a bath in their suburban Seattle home.
Shortly after Lee's death, the stunned and grief-stricken children were hit with another tragedy: their father was being charged with murder.
