"Freddy" Kassab was the step-father of Collette MacDonald, who was fatally stabbed and bludgeoned to death, along with her two daughters, by her husband, Captain Jeffrey MacDonald. At first, Kassab believed the story told by MacDonald, a doctor assigned to the Green Berets - that "hippies" broke into their home in February of 1970, and murdered his family and left him stabbed with a partially collapsed lung. But eventually Kassab and Colette's mother Mildred became convinced that their son-in-law had committed the crimes, and they spent nearly a decade in bringing him to justice. "Fatal Vision" reunited Karl Malden with Eva Marie Saint, who played Kassab's wife Mildred. They worked together most notably in "On The Waterfront", for which Malden was nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Ms. Saint won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
