The movie is set in Washington, where the erratic mechanic-turned-murderer, Randy Roth, lived with his second wife, Janis Roth.

In 1981, Janis fell to her death during a hike at Beacon Park.



Her husband, Randy, was the only other person present at the time of her death, although he was never charged with her murder.

Years later, Roth remarried. The new object of his affection was a single mother and recent widow named Cindy, who is played by Laura Ramsey.

Unfortunately, as the film depicts, the honeymoon phase dissipated quite quickly, and Cindy began to notice another side of her seemingly charming husband.

Following discussions of his violent outbursts, the woman’s best friend, Lori, allegedly began to beg her to leave him.

Randy caught on to Lori’s dislike of him, and attempted to keep her out of his wife’s life, according to United Press International.



Stause expressed that playing Lori helped her gain a better understanding of the red flags that went missed in Cindy’s case.

“If somebody really loves you, they’d love that you have that support system,” Stause said.

Unfortunately, for Cindy, time ran out. In 1991, the young mother mysteriously drowned during a trip to the lake with her husband and the kids. Roth was the sole witness.

Coincidentally, the drowning occurred at Lake Sammamish, the same setting where notorious serial killer Ted Bundy scouted out and kidnapped his victims years before.

As investigators began digging deeper into Roth’s past, the image of him as a suffering single father and grieving widower began crumbling down.



Roth was living lavishly, and allegedly had a history of committing fraud and stealing from past employers.

Soon enough, his motive became clear: money. The New York Daily News reported that Roth attempted to cash out on both of his late wives’ insurance policies.

While Roth was convicted of first-degree murder for the death of his fourth wife, though he was never charged over Janis’ death.

The 68-year-old is currently serving his sentence at Stafford Creek Corrections Center in Aberdeen, Washington.

The Lifetime rendition, A Rose for Her Grave: The Randy Roth Story, is based on a book of the same name by true crime writer Ann Rule.

The film was released on February 18 exclusively on the Lifetime channel.
