THE WIFE KILLER: 60 Minutes Major Event

GERARD Baden-Clay tried to portray himself as ‘Mr Middle Class’ – a successful small-businessman, proud father and loving and devoted husband.

But the real Gerard was the complete opposite.

He was an incompetent real estate agent whose business was hemorrhaging money; he was intolerant with his three young daughters and he was a womaniser who wasn’t even faithful to his long-term mistress.


But why Gerard Baden-Clay thought all his problems could be fixed by killing his beautiful wife Allison, only he knows.

So far he’s not saying, but after today being convicted of murder, he now has a lifetime in prison to think about it.

Following Tuesday’s conviction, this Sunday at 8pm, 60 Minutes will put to air a major event, taking viewers inside the extensive police investigation which led to Baden-Clay’s prosecution.

Reporter Tara Brown introduces the public to the forensic and detective team who painstakingly put together a circumstantial case so strong, the jury had to convict.

60 Minutes also talks to a witness the jury never heard from, a woman who was asked by Gerard to kill his wife.

The other woman in all of this, Gerard’s mistress of 4 years Toni McHugh, reveals a darker side to Gerard not seen before, of a man so busily trying to spin his way through personal and professional turmoil, that he lost all concept of right and wrong.

Allison’s best friends will also pay tribute to the woman they say was a loyal wife, loving mother, beautiful daughter and caring friend.
