Court Junkie

Oct 29, 2018

On February 18, 2002, 23-year-old Marine Sergeant Todd Sommer collapsed at the home he shared with his wife, Cynthia. An autopsy concluded that Todd had died from a heart attack, but years later, Cynthia was arrested and charged with murder. 


A special thank you to Allen Bloom, one of Cynthia's attorneys, for speaking with me about the case.
