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.
