'Til Death Do Us Part

For anyone in love, there is hope and faith that it will last forever; but in this series, what begin as love stories are twisted by rage, of passion soured by obsession, and of joy ravaged by paranoia, ending with a destiny that no-one expected.

For some individuals murder, like true love, is written in the stars.

From a suspicious carbon monoxide incident, to a parrot who became an eyewitness to murder, each episode tells a tragic tale of love turned lethal.

There's the loving wife turned wiccan, a spouse with a spiralling gambling addiction, and a motorcycle accident that is not what it seems.

Illustrated through split-screen archive and originally-shot material, including interviews with family, friends, law enforcement and the potential victim of the crime, this series unveils the breaking point in each of these relationships when love and murder collide.
