Sarah Baker has been charged with the first-degree murder of her husband, who was a well-known news anchor. The State alleges that Baker intended to divorce her husband and cut him out of her will, and that he was going to sue her for a large portion of the estate. Baker claims she shot him to protect herself when he advanced toward her with a kitchen knife threatening to kill her. The case features the use of expert forensic pathology, criminalistics, DNA testimony, and the defense of self-defense.
