Scorned Lovers Week: GA vs. James Sullivan
Lita Sullivan thought the man at her front door was delivering flowers. Instead, he was a hit-man, who shot her to death when she opened her door. Nineteen years after her murder, Lita’s aunt and the rest of her family still feel the pain of her loss.
Investigators had long suspected Lita Sullivan’s wealthy husband was behind her killing, but they never had enough evidence to charge James Sullivan. They finally got a break in the case when the girlfriend of the alleged hit-man helped investigators piece together the murder-for-hire plot. After years of living abroad, the Sullivan was extradited to the United States to stand trial in an Atlanta courtroom.
Watch Georgia vs. James Sullivan as the intricate plot is revealed, and prosecutors seek justice for Lita Sullivan. It’s part of Scorned Lovers week, after the Jodi Arias trial.
