Investigation Discovery's "FBI: Criminal Pursuit" takes a looks at the infamous Chicago murder case at 9 p.m. April 8 in an episode titled "The Black Widow. " The series presents the case rather cheesily at times through dramatic reenactments of key moments and interviews with real people who were involved at the time.

He sleeps with his gorgeous...
