- Airing Saturday, Dec. 7 (10:00PM) A CALIFORNIA POLICE OFFICER SHOT DEAD IN HIS HOME – HIS EX-WIFE ADMITS SHE PULLED THE TRIGGER – DID A PHOTO POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA LEAD TO THE OFFICER’S DEATH?
“48 Hours” Investigates in “The Killing of Officer Green” Preview
In February 2015, Exeter, Calif., police officer Daniel Green was shot four times and left for dead in his home. At first, his ex-wife Erika Sandoval denied having anything to do with his death. Then she changed her story.
Correspondent Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS investigate the death of the police officer and the case against Sandoval in “The Killing of Officer Green” to be broadcast Saturday, Dec. 7 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
48 HOURS takes viewers inside a twisted – friends say toxic – relationship between an officer and his ex-wife and a murder that rocked a California city, leaving behind the family of the beloved policeman struggling with life without him. Green’s family says the officer was a victim of domestic abuse and prosecutors agreed. Erika Sandoval’s defense attorney Dan Chambers says she gave as good as she got. “Both were victims and both were aggressors,” Chambers told the jury during his closing.
Green was found dead after he didn’t show up for work. Initially, investigators wondered whether his death was related to his police work. Soon after, they would learn it was a bad relationship that exploded into violence.
The broadcast features the first network television interviews with Green’s identical twin brother, Matt Green, and his sister, Misty Gray, who piece together their brother’s life with Sandoval, including their marriage and divorce.
“When everything was going the way they should be in her eyes, she was pleasant to be around. She was social, and she was nice,” says Matt Green. “She was kind…it’s only when things went bad or things didn’t go her way that she became nasty and things got ugly between the two of them…. And from what I saw, the bad was really bad.”
Sandoval was arrested and charged with her ex-husband’s murder just one week after he posted an image on Instagram with his new, younger girlfriend.
What led to Green’s death? Did a picture on Instagram lead Sandoval to crack? Or did Sandoval shoot Green after what she claimed were years of physical abuse?
48 HOURS: “The Killing of Officer Green” is produced by Paul LaRosa. Greg Fisher is the development producer, Kat Teurfs is the field producer. Marcus Balsam and Grayce Arlotta-Berner are the editors. Peter Schweitzer is the senior producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.

After Years of Silence, Abby Opens Up About Her Nine Months in Captivity, How She Survived and Life Now
’20/20′ Airs on the West Coast, Saturday, Dec. 7 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. PST), on ABC
In October 2013, 14-year-old Abby Hernandez disappeared on her way home from school without a trace. Nine months later, the New Hampshire teen returned home with a harrowing story of kidnapping, captivity and unspeakable abuse. Mostly silent for nearly five years since she disappeared, Abby tells her story to ABC News correspondent Deborah Roberts. She opens up about the difficult details of her abduction including being held for months in captivity by Nathaniel Kibby, who forced her to wear a shock collar and kept her prisoner inside a shipping container, and the psychological strategies she had to deploy in order to stay alive, including bonding with Kibby. Abby discusses her life now and how it has changed since her captivity. “20/20” airs only on the West Coast, Saturday, Dec. 7 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. PST), on ABC.
The hour includes interviews with Lauren Munday, the woman who unknowingly aided Abby’s release; Miranda Cloutier and Parish Dawe-Chadwick, Abby’s best friends; Zenya Hernandez, Abby’s mother; and officials involved with the case, including New Hampshire Deputy Attorney General Jane Young, New Hampshire State Police Captain Joseph Ebert, Police Chief Chris Perley and Officer Eric Benjamin.
Munday told authorities that Kibby had given her counterfeit money, which police say set off a chain of events that led to Abby’s release after Munday told Kibby the police were coming for him. In the months following Abby’s return home, parts of her story slowly came out through her lawyers who said she was “violently abducted” and spent months enduring “acts of unspeakable violence.” In 2014, Abby came face-to-face with Kibby in court as he was arraigned on charges of kidnapping; and in 2016, Kibby plead guilty to sexual assault, criminal threatening, kidnapping, witness tampering and assault, and received a prison sentence of 45 to 90 years.
