Investigation Discovery show ‘American Monster’ depicts Manling Williams, murders of family in Rowland Heights

Manling Williams, who in 2012 was sentenced to death for the murder of her husband and two children in their Rowland Heights home, is now the subject of a true crime documentary on the Investigation Discovery television network.

Manling Williams killed her husband, Neal Williams, in 2007 when she slashed him with one of the swords he collected. She also smothered both of the couple’s sons with a pillow at their condominium in the 18200 block of Camino Bello.

The ID channel episode of its show, “American Monster,” profiles the home life of the Williams family before the murders, as well as Mainling Williams’ attempts to frame her husband for the deaths.

IDAHO FALLS — Investigation Discovery and People magazine have partnered to examine the case of DeOrr Kunz Jr. in an hour-long special called “Where is Baby DeOrr?” that will air tonight (Nov. 13).

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – Charlotte Greathouse and her husband John have been nursing their broken hearts for 16 years.
