Life with Billy: This program reports on events leading up to the murder of Billy Stafford, a cruel and sadistic husband who brutalized his wife and children for years. When Jane Stafford shot her husband while he slept, she was arrested and offered a plea of manslaughter. Through interviews with Jane, her lawyers, citizens, and the police, we follow this case to its precedent-setting conclusion.
Life after Billy: Jane Stafford's trial in Nova Scotia received national attention. For the first time in Canadian history the battered wife syndrome was used as a defense for murder. In mid-February 1992, Jane died as a result of a gunshot wound, which the coroner reported as probable suicide. Those closest to Jane Stafford do not believe she took her own life.
