"Good Night Sweet Wife: A Murder In Boston" is a 1990 CBS movie that is based on the true story of Charles 'Chuck' Stuart and the murder of his pregnant wife Carol Stuart aka Carol DiMaiti Stuart. The movie also has the alternate title of "The Charles Stuart Story." (Starring Ken Olin and Annabella Price)
"Good Night Sweet Wife" begins with the message:
The following story is based on actual events as reconstructed from news reports and interviews with participants.
Then we see pregnant wife Carol Stuart leaving a Lamaze class with her husband Chuck Stuart. On the drive home, Stuart makes a stop at a remote location, where they both receive gunshot wounds. Charles phones 911 to report that a Black man shot them, leaving him wounded and his wife dead. Boston police become suspicious when Chuck's story doesn't add up. One tenacious reporter is determined to prove that Charles Stuart is a killer.
The true story is based on the murder of Carol DiMaiti Stuart, a pregnant woman who was gunned down in her car in 1989. Her husband Charles Stuart told the police that they were shot by a Black man. Stuart's brother eventually came forward to tell police that it was actually Chuck Stuart who had shot his wife and himself.
The murder case was covered extensively in the media, and has since been the subject of two crime documentaries.
The docudrama rarely airs on television and does not appear to be available on DVD.
