Based on a true story An Officer And A Murderer follows the downward spiral of one of Canada’s highest ranking Air Force Officers. Colonel Williams and his high-society wife were considered one of Canada’s most respected “power couples,” with two beautiful homes and high-profile careers. But on February 7, 2010, the entire nation watched in disbelief as he was arrested and eventually convicted of his crimes. Starting with a string of home invasions, Colonel Williams would take women’s lingerie and photos, later carefully categorizing and labeling them for his home collection. As he rose up in the ranks of the military, his lust and power grew and he eventually put aside all barriers to his deviant impulses, becoming more and more violent. Ultimately, he received two life sentences for first-degree murder, as well as concurrent sentences for sexual assault, forcible confinement and 82 counts of burglary. Brilliant at being stealth and obsessive in covering all traces, Colonel Williams was able to deceive his wife, friends, neighbors and even his military comrades until he was finally outwitted by a small town police detective, along with an FBI trained interrogation specialist, who together worked on the investigation that put an end to Colonel Williams’ string of disturbing crimes. The drama stars Gary Cole (The Good Wife), Laura Harris (24) and Rossif Sutherland (King).
