Is Nancy Garrido a monster or a victim?
We’ve heard a lot about Phillip Garrido, the convicted sex offender who fathered two children with Jaycee Dugard, but his wife Nancy is also charged with Jaycee’s kidnapping and rape.
Police say the Garridos abducted Jaycee when she was 11 and held her captive in their backyard for 18 years. Nancy Garrido’s lawyer, Gilbert Maines, says his client is also a victim and that the case is a “horrendous” thing for her.
Maines also says Nancy misses the children her husband fathered with Jaycee, and says she saw them all as family members. CNN’s Dan Simon will have the latest on the case, and we’ll talk about the defense strategy with CNN Legal Analyst Lisa Bloom.
Also tonight part two of Drew Griffin’s investigation into the black market for human organs. Tonight you’ll see just how desperate some people are for Kidneys and we’ll introduce you to a man who preys on that desperation.
And Chris Brown is on Larry King tonight where he will speak out about his assault of pop star Rihanna. Some of his comments have enraged advocates for domestic violence victims. We’ll dig deeper with Denise Brown, Nicole Brown Simpson’s sister, and Faye Wattleton from the Center for Gender Equality. See you tonight at 10 p.m. ET.
