To many residents in the town of Poughkeepsie, New York, Nicole Addimando and Christopher Grover appeared to be an ideal couple raising two young children.

So how did Chris wind up dead, and Nikki behind bars?

When the truth behind the shooting was finally revealed, the details would be more shocking, and more devastating, than anyone wanted to believe.
