Murder By Medicine
In the small southern town of Ider, Alabama, everyone knew Karri Willoughby as a devoted nurse, loving wife, and mother of two small children. When she was accused of killing her stepfather Billy Junior Shaw with a fatal injection of the anesthetic Propofol, outraged friends and family rallied to her defense.
Overnight Karrie became a media sensation, portrayed as an innocent young woman caught up in a terrible tragedy--until four years later, when she walked into court and pleaded guilty as charged. Only then did the full scope of her crimes emerge. Nurse Karri was unmasked as cold-blooded, conniving murderer.
Investigative journalist Sheila Johnson draws on hundreds of pages of previously unseen police records, interviews, recordings and videotapes, to create a haunting real-life thriller of medicine, family, and betrayal.
