UNDATED (CBS) - When a Florida real estate developer was charged in his young wife's death, the case got national attention due to his unusual defense. His attorneys blamed her spray tan for killing her.
Saturday night, Erin Moriarty of "48 Hours" reports on this murder case that started with a frantic 911 call.
The caller: "Help me please. My wife is in the bathroom dying. Lina!"
The death of 33-year-old Lina Kaufman in the early morning hours of Nov. 7, 2007 came without warning. The mother of two was living with her husband Adam in a wealthy suburb of Miami. Adam says, "I was numb. I couldn't think straight. I couldn't feel my body."
Lina's friend Melissa Fedowitz says, "I could not comprehend how a healthy 34-year-old woman just dies."
But what came next, nearly 18 months later, was even more shocking. Adam Kaufman was arrested and charged with his wife's murder; no one was more stunned than Adam's twin brother Seth. He says, "I know my brother more than anyone in this world. And I know he's not capable of anything like that."
Investigators say Adam strangled his wife, but he says he found her in the bathroom unconscious and laying on a magazine rack. Adam says, "She was draped over and her head, if you turn your head to the right like that and her hair was in her face."
Adam and his defense team initially wondered if Lina, who had gotten her first spray tan the night before, had died of an allergic reaction, a theory that made no sense to Prosecutor Kathleen Hoague. She says, "It was a laughable defense, truly."
But even she has to admit that the case is unusual because there doesn't appear to be a motive. Even more troubling is the fact that the medical experts who examined all the evidence don't agree on the cause of Lina Kaufman's death.
But even if all these doctors can't agree, 12 jurors are going to have to.
