"In February 2014, Aspen socialite Nancy Pfister was murdered in her own home. Someone bludgeoned Pfister to death, wrapped her in a blanket, and stuffed inside her closet. The question was: Who? Then, in March 2014, a married couple from Denver were arrested and charged with first-degree murder: Nancy Styler, a new friend of Pfister's who'd had a falling out with her after a business deal gone sour; and Dr. Trey Styler, Nancy's husband, who'd recently lost the family home, his medical practice, and any hope of a peaceful retirement for himself and his wife. Ten days later, police also arrested and charged Kathy Carpenter, Pfister's underpaid and overworked personal assistant. Trey Styler, who was slowly losing his grip on reality as he battled with mental illness, confessed to the murder 100 days later. Since then, he's refused to speak to anyone but his wife. The public and police speculated about whether the confession was true or if he had help-or any involvement at all-because at the time of the murder, it appeared that his medical condition left him barely able walk, much less carry out such a heinous crime. In Guilt by Matrimony, Styler's ex-wife, Nancy, reveals the answers to the biggest mysteries of this case as she recounts the trauma of being falsely accused and then imprisoned for her husband's crime. Also, for the first time since his arrest, Trey talks: an exclusive interview where he explains his side of the story. New York Times bestselling author Daleen Berry covers this compelling story from the inside, following the Stylers from their fairytale life in Denver to the morning of their simultaneous arrest to Nancy's release from jail and her attempts to rebuild her shattered life. Filled with exclusive interviews, a close look at the botched small-town police work, and theories on what really happened, Guilt By Matrimony is the definitive look at at a shocking murder that rocked Aspen.

This book is totally nuts. For one thing it seems to be written by a ghostwriter and the killer, although of course she says her husband did it. The lady is so weird, and the pictures are just of her and the bedroom of where the murder took place. Totally bizarre. I don't know how this book got into print!!!
