What would drive a church-going Springfield, Missouri woman and her daughter to fatally poison two family members with anti-freeze, and attempt to kill a third over a 14-month period? Diane Staudte and daughter Rachel both confessed to the murders of Diane’s husband Mark and her son Shaun, and attempting to kill her daughter Sarah, and are both serving life terms in prison. “20/20” takes viewers inside the case revealing new details of the heinous murder plot.
