On March 8, 1991, Dr. Norman Larzelere was finishing his lunch in his quiet, Florida dentist office when a masked gunman burst in, fatally wounded Dr. Larzelere with a shotgun, then ran from the scene. Gasping the name of his eighteen-year-old stepson, Jason, the doctor died in the arms of his wife and office manager, Virginia. Later, she told police she'd been so shaken that she'd neglected to call 911 until after her husband was dead. Two months of criminal investigation into the grisly murder revealed the sordid truth that shocked the community.
Virginia Larzelere, a chronic drug user and sex addict, had an unwholesome relationship with all her children, especially her teenage son, Jason. Driven by her greed for a multi-million dollar insurance policy, she successfully executed a lethal plot to have her husband brutally murdered. After one of the most sensational trials in Florida history, Virginia Larzelere was convicted of first-degree murder. Jason was tried several months later and acquitted of first degree murder.
