6. John Brooks:

John Brooks, a New Hampshire multimillionaire who was once a highly regarded entrepreneur was convicted with a murder of a small-time trash hauler Jack Reid. Brooks killed Reid with a sledgehammer after he was convinced that in 2003 Reid had stolen a van full of Brooks' belongings valued at about $200,000 including two Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the ashes of his father. Brooks, who was named New Hampshire's "Small Business Person of the Year" in 1997, is now hoping to avoid conviction and the death penalty. It would be New Hampshire's first execution since 1939.

5. Bob Ward:

Bob Ward, a real estate millionaire developer, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of his wife Diane, who was shot in the bedroom of their Isleworth mansion in September 2009. He killed his wife, Diane just days before she was about to give a statement in a lawsuit alleging that he blew millions of dollars on big houses and expensive cars while his business failed. Defense attorneys argued that Ward's wife was suicidal, and that he was trying to stop her from killing herself. Ward never took the stand in his defense. Ultimately, Ward was sentenced to life imprisonment in November.
