Produced by Josh Gaynor and Lisa Freed [This story first aired on September 30] "48 Hours"presents a rare look inside a controversial case: the State of Tennessee versus Raynella Leath. She's been called a black widow after two of her husbands died under unusual circumstances. David Leath was found shot to death in the couple's bed. Raynella, a nurse, called 911 to report finding her husband shot dead. There was no evidence linking her to the weapon or the shooting. "There was more than one shot," says District Attorney Steve Crump. "And while that's not unheard of – well, it didn't look like a suicide scene." "Everything good about this woman was twisted," says Leath's defense attorney Josh Hedrick. "Everything good about this woman was turned around to be evil. There's not any real evidence to suggest a homicide." Raynella Leath went on trial in May 2017 for the third time. "48 Hours" and correspondent Erin Moriarty were there and gained rare access to attorneys on both … [Read more...] about Raynella Leath: The Widow on Solway Road

Philomina had approached the high court, contending that there is nobody to look after her at her old age and the entire property is entitled to be retained by her. She urged that the system prevalent in the Biblical era has to be changed and that the origin of the enactment is the desire of patriarchal social system to keep the wealth and fertility of the widow in same patriarchal line. It was also contended that in accordance with the Hindu Law of Succession, the wife can retain property of the husband as full owner. … [Read more...] about Kerala HC Turns Down Widow’s Plea Challenging Constitutionality Of Sect. 33(b) Of Indian Succession Act Providing 50% Share Of Deceased Husband’s Property To His Kin [Read Judgment]
Widow Jane is not alone on either count. Many recognizable and artisan American whiskey brands source their product from a massive wholesale distillery or take creative liberties in how they market their product. “A shady business” In just the last 10 years, the number of craft distilleries in this country has ballooned from around 100 to more than 1,400. That growth is a product of consumer demand, but it’s also due to the easing of state distillation laws and the availability of sourced whiskey from suppliers like MGP in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Bulleit “Frontier” Whiskey, for instance, is owned by multinational spirits conglomerate Diageo. For years, it sourced much of its bourbon and rye from MGP, a wholesale distiller. Only after the brand became established did Diageo open a distillery in Kentucky, where the product has been made since 2016. Templeton Rye — marketed as Al Capone’s favorite whiskey and proud product of Templeton, Iowa … [Read more...] about Behind the misleading claims fueling America’s bourbon boom
