Children Murdered and Parents Accused

From June 17, 1993: Oprah speaks with Cynthia and David Dowaliby who were both put on trial for the murder of their 7-year-old daughter Jaclyn Dowaliby. The couple claimed that she was taken by an intruder. Cynthia was acquitted and David was found guilty and sentenced to 45 years in jail. A year after David's sentencing, his guilty verdict was overruled. Oprah interviews the couple to better understand this unsolved crime. We then hear from both Teri and Mark Lass, a couple who experienced the loss of their infant. Teri Lass was charged with first-degree murder after investigators collected substantial evidence tying her to the crime. However, Lee County jurors acquitted her after the criminal defense attorney raised reasonable doubt.
