UNDER PENALTY OF DEATH.
By 1998, Jill and Jeff Cahill's marriage was already over. With a divorce pending, his life was in shambles. Then, a pre-dawn argument between them came to an end when Jeff crushed her skull with an aluminum baseball bat. Fearing her testimony in an assault trial, he slipped unnoticed into her Syracuse hospital room and gave her a dose of potassium cyanide, killing her instantly. It took the jury only five hours to find him guilty.
BUT THE CONTROVERSIAL CASE AGAINST JEFF CAHILL
WAS JUST BEGINNING.
Jeff Cahill's trial would provoke one of the most passionate and furious debates about the death penalty in recent New York history leaving Jill Cahill's grief-stricken family survivors to wonder...
WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO SEAL HER KILLER'S FATE
AS SURELY AS HE HAD SEALED HERS? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
Jeff Cahill beat his wife to a pulp with a base-ball bat. She lay in a coma for weeks, then started to recover.
Worried that she was now capable of testifying against him, he dressed up as a cleaner and forced a lethal dose of cyanide down her incumbent neck and killed her.
Then the story starts...
A riveting story, well told. And as scary and upsetting as all these stories are when you consider the children, families and friends of the victim. But the killers never do.
And also a sad reality is that, in America, if you kill some-one and steal her/his purse/wallet you can expect the death penalty. If you just kill some-one... life..13.25 years.
I feel for Jill's family.
I feel for all victims.
None of which are murderers.
