When Bonnie Lee Bakley was murdered in cold blood in 2001, she hadn’t long been married to the Baretta star Robert Blake. So, soon after the fatal shooting, Blake was accused of killing his wife to end their so-called loveless marriage. But now the acquitted actor has finally spoken out about the saga.

Blake entered the world Michael James Gubitosi to parents Elizabeth Cafone and Giacomo Gubitosi in Nutley, New Jersey, in September 1933. His mother and father were both performers, and soon Blake, too, would follow in their footsteps. Indeed, he first took to the stage in 1936 alongside his two siblings under the name “The Three Little Hillbillies.”
