A Colorado dentist is charged with murder, accused of poisoning his wife, the mother of their 6 children. Police say James Craig bought arsenic and cyanide, and secretly poisoned his wife's protein shakes. Angela Craig had made many recent hospital visits, and checked into a hospital again, complaining of a severe headache and dizziness. At around 2 p.m. she had a seizure. Craig was then moved to ICU and placed on life support. Her condition quickly declined and she died.  After Craig's death, one of James Craig's co-workers told a nurse that the dentist had ordered potassium cyanide which was delivered to the office. There was no medical reason for the order. Police seized the husband's computer and found disturbing searches. It also came to light that James Craig had multiple affairs and a longstanding addiction to pornography, authorities said.

Cult mom Lori Vallow has pled not guilty to charges that she killed two of her children, JJ and Tylee. Now, Vallow says she can prove it. She has an alibi. Lori Vallow says that her 7-year-old and her 16-year-old were killed while they were at her late brother’s apartment.  Vallow's trial is set to get underway on April 3, 2023. The judge separated the trials of Lori Vallow and her husband Charles Daybell, as Daybell did not file for a speedy trial.   Vallow's alibi notice, filed with the court,  says she was in her own Rexburg apartment when Tylee and JJ died at the apartment where her brother, Alex Cox lived.     And in late-breaking news, the death penalty has been taken off the table in Vallow's case.  Joining Nancy Grace today: David Leroy - Attorney at Law (Boise, ID), Former Idaho Attorney General; Former Idaho Lieutenant Governor, & Former Prosecutor (Ada County); Facebook: BoiseCriminalDefense Caryn Stark - Psychologist; Twitter: @carnpsychRich Robertson - Arizona-based Private Investigator for Brandon Boudreaux and Larry & Kay Woodcock; Owner of R3 Investigations  Dr. Michelle DuPre - Former Forensic Pathologist, Medical Examiner, and Detective: Lexington County Sheriff's Department; Author: "Homicide Investigation Field Guide" & "Investigating Child Abuse Field Guide;" Forensic ConsultantNate Eaton - News Director; Twitter: @NateNewsNow, Instagram: @n.eaton See for privacy information.

BOMBSHELL TROUBLE FOR ALEX MURDAUGH: Teen Stephen Smith Death is Homicide
It has taken eight years but teen Stephen Smith's death will finally be investigated as a homicide. The Smith family has never believed that the 19-year-old's death was a hit and run as determined by a previous investigation. In just a week, the South Carolina mom raised more money through a GoFundMe account than what is needed to pay for the exhumation of Smith's body. Now, all that's needed is court approval. South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) Chief Mark Keel notified Smith's attorneys that the agency now officially considers Smith's death a murder. Smith's body was found miles away from his car and lying in the middle of the road. At first, responders thought he had been shot in the head, but the death was designated as a hit-and-run.  Joining Nancy Grace today:  Eric Bland - Attorney for Sandy Smith & Gloria Satterfield’s sons- Founder/Partner  Bland, Richer, LLP Attorneys at Law; Twitter: @TheEricBland; Co-host of ‘Cup of Justice’ podcast.Ronnie Richter - Attorney for Sandy Smith, Satterfield family, and other victims of Alex Murdaugh; Partner, Bland Richter Law Firm; Twitter: @BlandRichterSCCaryn Stark - Psychologist; Twitter: @carnpsychChris McDonough - Director At the Cold Case Foundation, Former Homicide Detective, & Host of YouTube channel, ‘The Interview Room’Dr. Michelle DuPre - Former Forensic Pathologist, Medical Examiner, & Detective: Lexington County Sheriff's Department; Author: "Homicide Investigation Field Guide" & "Investigating Child Abuse Field Guide;" Forensic Consultant Blair Sabol - Investigative Reporter for Live 5 News in Charleston, SC, Twitter: @BlairSabolTVSee for privacy information.
Attorneys Ben Crump and Sue-Ann Robinson have sent a letter to President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken calling for the White House to take action in Robinson's death.  The attorneys,  on behalf of mother Salamandra  Robinson, encourage the U.S. to extradite Shanquella's killer to Mexico or the U.S. takes jurisdiction of the case.  An FBI investigation is underway.   Shanquilla Robinson traveled from North Carolina to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with friends. It is one of those friends who stand accused in Robinson's death. According to a Mexican police report, a doctor was called to assist Robinson around 2 p.m. The doctor insisted on taking her to the hospital, but her friends refused.    According to Robinson's death certificate, she died from a severe spinal cord injury and a broken neck. Doctors call the injury an internal decapitation. A video surfaced after Robinson death showing her being beaten by one of the traveling friends. The documents submitted to the White House named the friend and calls for her to be extradited to face charges.  Joining Nancy Grace today: Salamondra Robinson - Victim's Mother,  Sue-Ann Robinson- Attorney for the Robinson family; Twitter: @notjustalawyer Dr. Bethany Marshall - Psychoanalyst (Beverly Hills, CA); New Netflix Show: 'Bling Empire' (Beverly Hills); Twitter: @DrBethanyLive  Irv Brandt - Senior Inspector, US Marshals Service International Investigations Branch, Chief Inspector, and DOJ Office of International Affairs: US Embassy Kingston, Jamaica;  Author: “SOLO SHOT: CURSE OF THE BLUE STONE AVAILABLE ON AMAZON; ALSO "FLYING SOLO: Top of the World;" Twitter: @JackSoloAuthorDr. Kendall Crowns - Chief Medical Examiner for Tarrant County (Ft.
