50 years ago - 1965 April 1 - In their Palm Springs home, former Hollywood film star Tom Neal shoots his wife Gale in the back of the head with a .45 caliber hand gun. The actor claimed the killing was the accidental result of a struggle for the gun between Gale and himself. Prosecutors sought the death penalty in the case but wound up only getting a conviction for involuntary manslaughter. Neal served just six years in prison then worked briefly as a landscaper and died in 1972 from heart disease.
