By Two and Two: The Scandalous Story of Twin Sisters Accused of a Shocking Crime of Passion
By Two and Two is the true story of the lusty Betty Wilson and her good twin, the demure Peggy Lowe. Betty, always ambitious, married a rich doctor who indulged her penchant for luxury - but not her appetite for desire. Peggy lived a happily married life and taught elementary school in a small Alabama town. Since childhood the women's epithets, the bad twin and the good twin, preceded them. In 1993, their diametric lives were fused by calamity. When Dr. Wilson, Betty's husband, was found bludgeoned to death, the twins were accused of conspiring in the murder. But why them? Was it because 1993 was an election year and the Huntsville D.A. needed a high-profile conviction? Or was it because James White, a wanderer Peggy befriended out of pity, said that the twins forced him to commit the murder in the name of their love triangle? Suddenly, the very system in which the twins held an unflagging faith threatened to betray them. A nightmare ensued. The twins were tried separately. And those who watched the cases unravel - from the jurors to the press - were certain that they would meet identical, deserved ends: life in prison. After all, they were obviously guilty. Weren't they?
