Michael Dobson was the prime suspect in the murders of both his wives.


When his first wife Sandra was shot and subsequently hospitalized, the police initially suspect Michael shot her because she wanted to leave him. The police recover the bullet in her brain and she later dies from her injuries. The killer is later revealed to be a junkie named Robin Wenner, who later dies of an overdose, and the charges against Michael are dropped. It is later discovered that Robin worked at Michael's comedy club and Michael ordered the hit. However, since double jeopardy was attached, Michael could not be charged with this murder again. (L&O: "Coma")

He later arranged for his second wife Emily to be killed by a hitman named Luis Cruz and police investigate the crime. Initially, they suspect Michael of ordering the hit again but don't have enough proof. It is later discovered that at the time of their deaths, both wives had insurance policies taken out on them right before Michael had them killed. They eventually stumble upon his future third wife, Margaret Nash, and get her to turn on him. He is later convicted of Emily's murder. (L&O: "Encore")
