This Sunday’s episode of Snapped airing 9/8c tells the story of Ajelina Lewis and William Palmer, high school sweethearts in Arizona who had become unexpectedly pregnant. “It's a case of a promising young woman whose life goes into a downward spiral,” says co-Executive Producer Sharon Martin. “And when she hits rock bottom it has deadly consequences.”

But what does rock bottom mean when it comes to Ajelina? She’d dropped out of school just before her senior year to raise her baby and by all accounts was a dedicated mother. Could rock bottom mean selling cocaine to help make ends meet for her baby daughter? Or was it stabbing her boyfriend and the father of her baby 25 times in his sleep, as one prosecutor claimed? 

Here’s a possible hint, from Sharon Martin: “Ajelina’s (audio) statements to police are fascinating, especially once her story starts to unravel.” Get all the details by watching this Sunday's episode at 9/8c.
