wow, look at that. the power and versatility of the jaw saw lets you reach, grab, and cut. with the jaw saw, you have total control. i have these two rows of hedges between my swimming pool and my usable yard over here. we want to take those out today. the jaw saw was great. it tackled the thick ones easily. it went through the smaller stuff like it wasn't even there. it's super easy to use, safe, went through quick, tons of power. and, you know, being electric, it's great for the environment. the jaw saw was great. as you can see, we got rid of both sets of hedges all the way. it's opened up to the pool now. i think it's a great tool. the top of the tree came down in a big windstorm and it was mostly small branches. this was perfect. i could just even reach over and trim the branch. i like the fact that the blade is not seen, that it just shows up when it needs to do the job. i don't have to worry about all the debris coming back on me. it just was awesome. it just went through this job like nothing.
2:51 am
so how do you get to the high branches, the ones that are too high to reach? in the past, you had to use a ladder. but it's extremely dangerous to hang off a ladder and try to make a cut with a chainsaw. ladders and chainsaws don't mix. you could use one of these pole saws and do the job by hand, but it's a long and exhausting process. or you can make life easy and use the optional extension pole for the jaw saw. here, i can do ts. alright, show me. alright. well, now you can reach the branches from the ground without having to stand on a ladder. and the steel teeth hold the branches in place so almost all the weight of the saw is removed while robin is making the cuts. it's fast, it's easy, and it's even fun. my name is devin hurst. i've been in the outdoor power equipment industry for over 25 years. i was asked to look at the jaw saw and i saw things i really liked about it. when you're cutting overhead, it's a no-no with a chainsaw. with this, in addition to being

2:57 am
it is very easy, very easy to use. any woman can use it. here i go. easier than cutting pizza. wow, that works nice. i like it. yeah, i have chainsaws and i use tools. i do carpentry so i know what a good tool is when i see it and this feels pretty good. that thing's really neat. it's pretty nice. i like it. it's a lot better than a regular a regular chainsaw. great tool. i'll use it. it seems safe. yeah, i like that. it grabs ahold of it and it won't let it go. it sucks it up into the blade. it's awesome. you can safely cut against a chain-link fence without damaging your blade or the fence. you can't do that with an ordinary chainsaw, but you can with a jaw saw. thick branches are not a problem for the jaw saw. with the jaw saw you just reach,

2:59 am
an exclusive feature found only with the jaw saw is the auto tension. this patented chain tensioning system prevents over-tightening by automatically determining the proper tension so there's no more guessing. this extends the life of the bar and chain and that saves you money. and it gives you two to three times the number of cuts you get with a regular chainsaw. the way that they did the tensioning system i think is very user-friendly and it's kind of intuitive. just like loosening the lid on a jar, you can remove the bar and chain. it comes with a little tool. what's really neat is that it tensions the chain itself when you tighten the chain back up. that's a place that a lot of consumers have a lot of trouble. professionals do this every day so they're used to it. but for a consumer this is, how tight do i get the chain? or how loose should it be? they don't really know. so i think that's really important. the jaw saw also features an automatic oiler that provides constant lubrication to the bar and the chain.

that wouldn't have happened with the jaw saw. i can cut on flagstone, i can cut on concrete, and almost any other surface. i can even cut these big thick branches on concrete. look at that. i can cut on dirt. with the closed blade and chain, my blade's not going into the dirt kicking back. my blade stays sharper longer. and then i can cut on this perfectly manicured lawn without marking it up at all. look at that. and then you notice that i'm not bending over at all hurting my back. that's amazing. you're not going to do that with the jaw saw. and with the jaw saw you can cut multiple branches at one time making for quick, easy cleanup. robin, the jaw saw really is the chainsaw reinvented. before i had an opportunity to use the jaw saw i used a regular electric chainsaw. it's a little nerve-wracking, the blade.
3:05 am
you're always worried that you're going to hit something and kick back and all that. i can't use a chainsaw. number one, i can't get it started. number two, i was really a little bit afraid of it. what i like about this is you can kind of hook it on the branch and then just push the handle in and then it saws the branch without any problem. the jaw saw, if you're not using it, the blade stays retracted so i feel very comfortable with it. i don't feel like i'm going to in any way hurt myself with it. if you're like me, every year you have the problem of how to dispose of your christmas tree. the jaw saw solves that problem. watch this. i'm going to take this tree and put it in this can. it's fast, easy, and it's going to be a lot of fun. let's go. this is way easier and safer than with a chainsaw. with a chainsaw, i'd be worried about cutting back on myself.

3:13 am
3:14 am
circumstantial, yes. but he thought both eric naposki and nanette johnston committed murder together. >> i thought we had it solved as far as who the responsible parties were. it was just a matter the d.a.'s office didn't feel comfortable with filing the case. >> reporter: two times, newport beach police brought the case to the d.a.'s office. and two times, the d.a.'s office said the detective had not made his case. nanette was arrested in the spring of 1995 but not for murder. they got her for fraud and forgery. she pleaded guilty, spent a year in jail, and though eric waited for her, by the time she got out, she was ready to move on.
3:15 am
she married a real estate mogul, much richer than bill mclaughlin ever was. they had a baby girl. and, once again, nanette was driving a fancy car and living where rich people live, and spending lots and lots of money on clothes and lunches and hairdos. and then, well, then she met someone else, another bill, so she divorced the real estate mogul and agreed to receive $17,000 a month in child support. had that been her idea all along? the new bill did not have millions, and when he married nanette, he signed a prenup agreeing to let her keep for herself all the money she got from husband number two. or was that number three? anyway, the real estate mogul. eric naposki went back east, got married, had kids, got divorced, made that reality show that never got going. he was to play a big, scary bad guy. >> i just have a slightly different interpretation of the law. >> reporter: and what of bill's kids?
3:16 am
they tried to live how their father would have wanted them to, sort of the opposite of nanette. >> he really wanted us to help make the world a better place, so he encouraged us to do things in the community. the three of us kids would go to nursing homes and put on a talent show for the elderly. >> how unusual. >> you need to understand where my dad came from, a very low-income family, as we'd call it today. and so he always appreciated what he had, and he worked very hard for it. >> reporter: bill's children worked hard, too, supported libraries in the third world, orphanages in africa, gave wheelchairs to the poor in latin america. rewarding work. but, as time passed, they began to think the fairytale had it all wrong. seemed to them like it was the evil stepmother who got to live happily ever after. certainly not them. five years after the murder, in 1999, the sisters lost their brother, kevin, in a drowning
3:17 am
accident. he never did recover from the damage the drunk driver did or the trauma of finding his murdered father. so both men of the family were gone. and hope for justice faded away. >> we thought, those two will be arrested next week for killing my dad. and when it didn't happen month after month after month, and then year after year, we had to actually just release the pain and the anger we felt from it. >> and conscious of the fact that you had to work on that? >> and very conscious of the fact. >> reporter: and that might have been the end of our story but for him. this is matt murphy, surfer and prosecutor, with just possibly an excess of confidence in his ability to prosecute the murder of bill mclaughlin all those years ago. what you had was an old, old case, pretty circumstantial stuff, a lot of evidence had been lost.
3:18 am
degrades over time. were you a little nervous about that? >> you're always nervous when you try an old case. >> reporter: but not a forgotten one. cold case investigators kept digging. they found a real estate agent who showed nanette and eric expensive houses after the pair said they were about to come into some money. they had found a businessman who heard from nanette before the murder that she was about to have lots of money to invest. and they found a neighbor of eric's from that "melrose place" type building, a woman who had been too afraid to come forward at the time of the murder named suzanne cogar. >> suzanne cogar was very, very important because suzanne cogar gave the best comprehensive understanding of the way nanette manipulated naposki into committing the murder. >> reporter: suzanne told them how she and eric would chat by the pool.
3:19 am
how one day in the fall of 1994, eric was angry that his girlfriend's boss, meaning bill mclaughlin, had tried to rape her. >> totally untrue. they're engaged to be married. she had been living at the house as boyfriend/girlfriend for over three years. but naposki didn't know about it apparently. >> and he's in a rage about it. >> he's in a rage about it. >> reporter: after the murder, said suzanne eric sought her out, said if the police came around, tell them i'm a nice guy. >> she said, oh, my god, eric, i don't want to know if you had anything to do with this. he smiled and said, maybe i did, maybe i didn't. if you're accused of a murder you didn't commit, how are those words ever going to come out of your mouth? >> reporter: incriminating but hardly one of those tangible facts that gets someone sent away for life. >> this is one where every little piece of evidence had to be considered in light of all the other pieces of evidence. >> reporter: in fact, just the
3:20 am
type of challenge matt murphy was after. so on may 20, 2009, more than 14 years after bill mclaughlin was shot dead in his kitchen, nanette was plucked from her well-shod life and charged with murder. nanette proclaimed her innocence and her orange county friends stood by her. >> i'm just going to tell you that she's my friend. she's a good person. she's been generous and kind and a wonderful mother and a wonderful neighbor. >> reporter: across the country in connecticut, police picked up eric naposki and accused him of murder, too. eric was also defiant. >> it wasn't eric naposki who shot bill mclaughlin. this is a fact. and matt murphy's wrong. i'm tell you right now on my children, he's just straight wrong. >> reporter: did eric kill bill mclaughlin? did he conspire with nanette? or was matt murphy in over his head? coming up -- first, they had to face trial
3:21 am
where nanette's lawyer had an unusual defense. >> in court, you called your client a slut. >> i'm sure i did.
3:22 am
3:23 am
good afternoon. >> good afternoon. >> reporter: 17 years after bill mclaughlin's life was brought to such a violent early end, eric naposki went on trial here in the orange county courthouse. >> what i want to do at this point, i want to take you folks through kind of an overview of the evidence. >> reporter: prosecutor matt murphy told the jury eric naposki volunteered to be nanette johnston's deadly triggerman, that he had been copying keys in november, doing target practice, and -- >> on august 2nd, mr. naposki purchased a very expensive
3:24 am
beretta 9 millimeter 92f. >> reporter: then, a few months later, it was nanette's turn. murphy told the second jury that nanette's greed was insatiable, that she wrongly thought, as trustee of bill's trust, she control the money and that her stealing escalated as the murder date got closer. >> she steals $48,200 in the month of october alone. so in the month of october alone, she has beaten the previous nine months combined with her thefts. >> reporter: and so the prosecutor argued she asked eric to kill bill before he caught on. eric's attorneys told the jury two things -- one, eric couldn't have done it. 18 minutes before the murder, he was on a pay phone at this denny's, which isn't even in newport beach. true, the phone bill which might have proven it had been lost, but the point was, said his lawyers, he couldn't have made it all the way to newport beach
3:25 am
in time to commit the murder. and anyway, they said, nanette did it. >> that the evidence in this case and at this trial shows that nanette johnston is the person most likely to have committed this murder. eric naposki was merely the patsy. >> reporter: but in nanette's trial, her attorneys said she was innocent and it was eric who committed the murder. >> over the course of this trial, the evidence is going to show that he murdered mr. mclaughlin out of jealousy and out of greed on his own part. >> reporter: mutual finger-pointing. though nanette's attorney, michael hill, had to agree his client wasn't exactly a saint. >> hate her as much as you want for being a thief, a liar, a cheat, a slut, whatever you want to call her. >> it seems to me in court, you called your client a slut.
3:26 am
>> i'm sure did. i can't just ignore the worst parts of the case. just because you treat people poorly in your life doesn't make you a murderer. >> if she thought she was getting $1 million out of that life insurance policy, $1 million is a lot of money. >> $1 million is a massive amount of money to people like me, but $1 million to her was pittance. he was worth 55 million when he died, so her long-term plan is not to be with a deadbeat loser, wannabe nfl player. >> that's harsh. >> it's true. >> reporter: which was the question we put to the prosecutor. she was getting lots of money from him, probably stealing a little along the way, and she could cheat at the same time. i mean, come on! why would she kill him? >> the problem is, if he lives, he either finds out she's cheating or he finds out she's stealing and she winds up, best-case scenario, on the street with nothing. worst-case scenario, she goes to jail for embezzlement. it isn't just a motive. it's a motive on steroids. >> reporter: in the end, murphy got his verdict. >> guilty. >> guilty ofo the crime of
3:27 am
>> guilty ofo the crime of felony to wit. >> reporter: then, after conviction, the oddest thing happened, an epilogue, if you like. eric called up matt murphy from jail and said he was finally ready to tell the truth. of course, he told us, too. >> the first thing i wanted to do was clear up with matt that i didn't do the crime. but i also wanted to share some other information with him that i hadn't shared with anybody in 17 years. >> eric had a new story. >> if nanette wanted bill mclaughlin dead, then bill mclaughlin was as good as dead, whether it was to get me to do it, whether it was to pay someone else to do it. >> reporter: eric's story now? that nanette asked him to kill bill mclaughlin and he refused, but put her in touch with someone who could do it and they used the beretta, which, said eric, wasn't his after all. he had given it to nanette as a gift, he said. and she supplied it to the hitman. so what did matt murphy think of eric's new story? >> it doesn't make any sense. here's the problem with eric
3:28 am
naposki. the first story was, i had nothing to do with it. and then we arrest him and he says, nanette's totally innocent and i'm totally innocent. then we get to trial and it changes to, nanette's not innocent but i'm innocent. and then, i had nothing to do with it, i didn't know anything. then we interview him afterwards and it changes again to something radically different again. >> michael hill didn't buy it either. >> have you ever heard of hiring a hitman but then the hitman goes, yeah, i'll take the job, but i don't have a gun. could you loan me yours? >> reporter: so eric sits in jail and contemplates that long-ago love affair with nanette. >> nanette johnston is the worst type of person. she can lie to you, make love to you, kill you, all in the same week, and not even cry at the funeral. and she was my girlfriend. and that's what i have to live with. that's the price i'm paying. >> reporter: as for bill's family, they say they're grateful, believing nanette and
3:29 am
eric are finally where they belong. how do you make sense of all this stuff? >> there is no sense of it. they're just very sick, demented, selfish people. when we actually started learning how nanette's mind worked, it was really hard to comprehend. in a very dark place to unravel. >> reporter: so she does what her father taught her. she lives for others as well as herself. she flies, like he did, and she looks to the light. >> when it comes down to it, our dad taught us, pass our goodness forward, make this world a better place, and give unto others who are less fortunate. and so we do that. my sister and i both do that today. that's part of our mission in life. and we go about with my dad, our dad, as an angel on one shoulder and our brother as an angel on another shoulder.
