On March 15th, 1987 police in Anchorage, Alaska arrived at a horrific scene of carnage. In a modest downtown apartment, they found Nancy Newman’s brutally beaten corpse sprawled across her bed. In another room were the bodies of her eight-year-old daughter, Melissa, and her three-year-old, Angie, whose throat was slit from ear to ear. Both Nancy and Melissa had been sexually assaulted. 23-year-old Kirby Anthoney was a troubled drifter who had turned to his uncle, John Newman, Nancy’s husband. But little did John know that the nephew he took in was a murderous sociopath capable of slaughtering his beloved. But while police built their cases, Kirby bolted for the Canadian border. First they hunted him down. Then, authorities began their long, bitter battle to convict him. But justice would not be done until Kirby Anthoney took the stand in his own defense – and showed the world the monster he truly was.
