On December 9, 2001, Nortel Networks vice president Kathleen Peterson, a well-known advocate for the arts in Durham, was found dead at the bottom of a staircase in her Forest Hills home. On February 24, 2017, her husband, novelist Michael Peterson, who was convicted in 2003 of murdering his wife but later had that conviction vacated, was set to plead guilty to manslaughter while maintaining his innocence, putting an end to one of the longest trials in North Carolina history and more than a decade of appeals, a bizarre but very human saga that captured the nation’s imagination and spawned a seemingly endless parade of books, documentaries, Lifetime movies, and Nancy Grace episodes.
