TV show highlights local case

“It was interesting because there wasn’t a clear, obvious motivation right off the bat, which makes it intriguing for us to kind of examine and try to figure out what might have ultimately led this woman to commit this crime against her husband.”

A Farmville man whose wife was convicted last year of stabbing him in the head will be featured, along with the woman and a sheriff’s office investigator, on a new television series, “Wives with Knives.”

Tommy Shakelford, 41, Sarah Saunders, 28, and Pitt County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Paula Dance were interviewed separately last week for the series, which is set to premiere in November on Investigation Discovery.


“Wives with Knives” profiles women who commit crimes against their husbands, Elisabeth de Kleer, a producer and writer with Indigo Films, said. The independent production company was contracted by the national television network to produce six episodes.
