Police Interrogations: Thou Shalt Not Kill

Humble, TX., March 8, 1995

Howard Guidry was 18 years old when police say he was hired to murder Farah Fratta by her husband Bob. Here, four months after Farah's murder, Guidry takes police to the scene of the crime and details how he shot Farah twice in the head.


Howard Guidry was convicted of murdering Farah Fratta and sentenced to death along with the men who hired him. But in 2003, 9 years after the murder, a judge threw out Guidry's confession to police. Guidry was retried for the murder of Farah Fratta and was convicted again. He was sent back to death row.
