Scoop: 48 HOURS on CBS - Saturday, July 8, 2017

Skylar Nemetz shot his young wife, Danielle, in the back of the head while she sat at a computer – that’s not in dispute. But what are up for dispute are the circumstances leading up to the shooting. The former Army infantryman swore he accidentally fired the gun. Prosecutors said he deliberately shot his wife in a fit of jealousy.

Where is the truth? Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS investigate the death of Danielle Nemetz and the case against Skylar in an encore of “The Soldier’s Wife” to be broadcast Saturday, July 8 (10:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

“He is seeing this as an accident. His family sees this as an accident,” said Gregory Greer, deputy prosecutor in Pierce County, Wash. “We believe he murdered his wife.”

In his first interview, Nemetz told 48 HOURS he loved his wife, misses her greatly and never meant for her to die. “I feel like my heart was ripped out of my chest and all the veins, too, with the day that my wife died,” Nemetz told Moriarty.

This is a not a typical “'whodunit.” It’s also a look at what Danielle’s death did to everyone involved and the extent to which a mother will go to defend a son accused of murder.

48 HOURS: “A Soldier’s Wife” is produced by Lisa Freed, Liza Finley, Allen Alter and Greg Fisher. Ken Blum, Richard Barber, David Spungen and Phil Tangel are the editors. Linda Martin is the update producer. Patti Aronofsky is the senior producer. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.
