The youngest of two children, Elizabeth Guthrie grew up outside Waco, Texas. After high school, Elizabeth stayed close to home, studying computers at a local community college. In an online chat room, she met Craig Nail, a computer analyst living in Oregon. Elizabeth travelled to Oregon to meet Craig in person, and, as their relationship deepened, Craig decided to close the 3000km gap between them. He got a job in Texas and the couple married and relocated to Dallas. In 2001, Elizabeth gave birth to a baby girl. But while Elizabeth and Craig doted on their new daughter, their own relationship fizzled. In May 2006, Elizabeth filed for divorce and Craig moved out. But the battle over custody of their daughter continued for months - sending Elizabeth into depression. She began drinking and seeking comfort at local biker bars. Then, on December 26th, 2007, a gunman burst into Craig's home and killed him. Craig's girlfriend was also shot, but survived. Outside Craig's home, police found a beer can tossed by the killer. The DNA on the can, along with cell phones found at Elizabeth's family's ranch in Waco, led police to biker, and ex-con, Mark Lyle Bell. Police learned from Elizabeth's mother that Bell and Elizabeth were not only friends - but after the murder, her mother heard Elizabeth and Bell talking as if they'd plotted the shooting together. In January 2008, Elizabeth, along with Bell, was arrested for Craig's murder. In 2011, Bell pleaded guilty to capital murder in exchange for a life sentence, and his testimony against Elizabeth at her trial. But in September 2012, when Elizabeth went on trial, Bell started backpedalling, claiming he didn't remember anything. When the judge threatened to let the jury hear a transcript of Bell's confession, implicating Elizabeth in the murder plot, Elizabeth's defense decided to fold. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit capital murder and was sentenced to 50 years in prison, with the possibility of parole.
