Emotionless following Cindy’s death, Randy orders her immediate cremation, takes custody of Cindy’s son, and attempts to collect on her life insurance policy. Determined to find the truth and get Cindy’s son away from his deceitful stepfather, Lori uncovers more of Randy’s past, discovering that Cindy may not have been the first wife murdered at his hands.”
