In every murder trial, the prosecution and the defense present two radically different stories of what happened. In The First 48 Presents: Killer Verdict the viewers sit in the jury box and watch a real-life murder trial unfold. We get to decide which story to believe and reach our own verdict. In this episode, a shooting on a Florida beach leaves a beautiful young woman dead and her husband wounded with four gunshots. In a twist, the authorities arrest the most unlikely suspect--the surviving husband. During the trial, the defense argues they were simply the victims of a robbery gone wrong. The prosecution claims the husband killed April, then shot himself four times to fool investigators. These two dramatic stories play out in the courtroom, leaving everyone to wonder which story is true--and which story the jury will believe.
