The Murderer's Mistress

Gypsy Willis’ affair with a married doctor led her to scandal, jail and a role as a celebrity witness at his trial
When Gypsy Willis received a text from her married lover that said he'd just lost his wife, she had no idea what it meant. "I didn't have any idea what he was talking about," she says.

My Rule is Law

Disquiet grows in the legal community over harsh philosophies at the Salt Lake City Prosecutor's Office

His family always treated him like an adult, he says, rather than someone who was handicapped.
