The Colonel's Wife
Decorated War Hero Charged With Wife's Murder
Retired Colonel George Marecek is one of the most decorated Green Berets in the Army's history. And he's still tough as nails. Over 36 years, he has fought in three wars.
“I stand for integrity,” Marecek says. “Devotion to duty, love for your nation. And above it all, truth.”
But did he murder his wife? Susan Spencer reports on this strange case.
On June 3 1991, Col. Marecek and his Thai wife, Viparet, vacationed at Fort Fisher, a military recreation area near Cape Fear, N.C. Lovers of the outdoors, the two took a vacation to celebrate their ninth anniversary, Col. Marecek says.
