Thomas Randolph

Thomas Randolph was sentenced to death in 2017 for the murders of his sixth wife, Sharon Randolph, and hitman Michael Miller. His conviction was overturned in 2021, after the state’s highest court found the district court abused its discretion in admitting prior-bad-act evidence at trial. Randolph’s case was the focus of the Dateline docuseries 'The Widower.' The defendant was married six times, and 'four of his wives died under mysterious circumstances'. Randolph was once a suspect in the 1986 death of his second wife, Becky Gault, in Utah but was acquitted of all charges in Gault’s death in 1988. During his Nevada trial, prosecutors relied heavily on evidence from the Utah trial, including testimony from the man Randolph allegedly tried to recruit to kill Gault. A Clark County jury convicted Randolph of murder and conspiracy charges in June 2017 for the deaths of Michael Miller and Sharon Randolph and recommended two death sentences. After his conviction was overturned in 2021, the case was remanded for a new trial.
