Shortcut: Convincing your husband to murder your ex

This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 

Even though Biannca Edmunds didn't pull the trigger, Victorian homicide detectives pursued her for years with the belief that she was responsible for the death of her ex partner, Michael Caposiena.

In 2016, Caposiena was murdered by Edmunds' then-husband, Glen Cassidy. Cassidy himself died that night, due to the self-defence efforts of Caposiena.

Court Reporter for ABC News Melbourne, Kristian Silva, joins us this on episode to break down this bizarre and tragic assassination attempt.
