Well known for its picturesque setting, Napa Valley is also home to crimes perpetrated in the name of greed, love and rage. Shocking incidents have rocked the small communities nestled among the vineyards, like that of greedy young Billy Duvall, who killed his parents as they slept, and Bob Edwards, who suffocated his beloved wife in a misguided attempt to keep a promise. Two victims of domestic violence came to very different ends—one murdered and the other offered a second chance at life after a jail sentence. Join author and retired Napa Superior Court judge Raymond A. Guadagni as he offers his unique perspective on these notorious court cases and the criminal justice system.
