TV ONE DEBUTS NEW TRUE CRIME SERIES, "FOR MY WOMAN" ON MONDAY, MARCH 20 at 10 pm ET
Show is a Spin-Off of the Hit Series, For My Man
Premiere episode features the Fort Worth Funeral Home Scandal
SILVER SPRING, MD. - March 6, 2017 - TV One will add a new true crime series to the Monday night line-up when For My Woman premieres on Monday, March 20 at 10 p.m. ET. The show is a spin-off of the network's hit series, For My Man, which premiered in 2015 and has become a staple on Monday nights alongside Fatal Attraction.
For My Woman is a true crime series that features the outrageous and shocking stories of men who have been arrested for a crime they committed in the name of loyalty and love for their woman. From a three-state killing spree to the mortuary turned house of horrors, these blinded-by-love love culprits have no limit as to how far they'll go for the women in their lives.
The series premiere of For My Woman features the Fort Worth, Texas funeral home scandal that rocked news headlines nationwide in 2014. When Minister Dondre Johnson married his wife Rachel, he vowed to do anything to make her happy. The profit from their family-run mortuary business allowed Rachel to live lavishly while keeping a tight hold on the bank accounts. However, when she became pregnant and put Dondre in charge, he soon discovered he was in over his head. The business income slowly dried up while the bills continued to mount and Rachel continued to shop as if everything was fine.
Desperate to make ends meet, Dondre decided to stop cremating the bodies as requested by their grieving families. Instead, he stored the corpses in the garage and pocketed the money. Months later, as the stench began to rise, police discovered the decaying bodies of six adults, one child and one infant, lying in unrefrigerated rooms.
