Judgment of the "Sleepwalking Killer"16 March - 44 mins explicit
What would motivate a man to brutally stab his wife, and the mother of his children, forty-four times and then drown her in their swimming pool? In 1997 Scott Falater was accused of doing just that but claimed he had no memory of doing so because he was sleepwalking. This week’s episode dives deeper into his story with an audio edition of the original series Judgment with Ashleigh Banfield. Would he be able to convince a jury that he did not kill his wife in cold blood? This is Judgment of the “Sleepwalking Killer.”

Idaho v. Lori Vallow Daybell - Closing Argumentsexplicit
During closing arguments, the State argues Lori is the common thread in these three murders, while the defense blames Chad Daybell's influence over her. The State brought back the theme from openings of money, power, and sex and said Lori is the common thread in these three murders... she is the one person who ties this all together. The state also points out Lori’s story changes dramatically in October 2018, when she read some of Chad’s end-of-the-world books, then met him. The defense attacks the state’s money, power, and sex argument, saying Lori wanted to be a leader, but she wasn't leading anyone, she's following Chad.
