20/20 airs a new episode tonight Friday February 3 2023 on ABC.
“Kill or Be Killed” Nikki Addimando, a mother of two, told authorities that she shot her husband, renowned gymnastics coach Chris Grover, at their house. Is it more likely that she staged the crime scene and murdered her partner in cold blood, or that she pulled the trigger in self-defense after years of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of Grover?
“20/20” discusses the domestic violence survivor issues and the death that divided the town of Poughkeepsie, New York.
Addimando’s first televised interview, with “Nightline” co-anchor Juju Chang, is featured in the two-hour show. In it, Addimando discusses the abuse she claims to have suffered and why she felt killing Grover was the only option.
Exclusive interviews with Michelle Horton, Addimando’s sister, Sarah Caprioli, Addimando’s therapist, Garrard Beeney, Addimando’s appellate counsel, Bella Leone, Grover’s ex-girlfriend, and Justine van der Leun, journalist and host of the “Believe Her” podcast, are also featured in this episode.
Airdate: Friday February 3 2023 at 9.00pm on ABC.
