2002: "In Cold Blood" and "Baretta" actor Robert Blake and his bodyguard are arrested in connection with the shooting death of Blake's wife, Bonnie Lee Bakley, about a year before. In 2005, Blake was tried and acquitted of charges of murder and solicitation of murder, but on Nov. 18, 2005, he was found liable in a California civil court for her wrongful death.
