A murder. A controversial defense. A shocking crime - the murder of Timothy Hillman by his loving wife Georgie for the love of their daughter Sarah. The Hillmans were a golden family, living on a peaceable island off the New England coast. Timothy was a talented sculptor, handsome, charming, sought-after. Georgie was a devoted mother to their children, Sarah and Zeke - until one June night, when Georgie aimed a hunting rifle at her sleeping husband's head and pulled the trigger. Her unique defense: murder by proxy. Her lawyer insists she is innocent, that she was acting as a proxy for her eight-year-old daughter, too young to defend herself against an allegedly abusive father. Is Georgie Hillman a desperate mother protecting her child from sexual abuse? Or is she a disenchanted, delusional wife, as the prosecution charges?
