Stefanie Newman Rabinowitz was a young Philadelphia attorney murdered by her husband. Craig Rabinowitz drugged his wife, strangled her and then placed her in the bathtub in their home to make the death appear to be an accidental drowning. Police became suspicious when it was noted that she was wearing all of her jewelry, even her wristwatch, in the tub. The delay of her burial allowed the marks on her neck to become visible to the Coroner, making it abundantly clear that this was no accident, but a murder. It was established that Rabinowitz killed his wife for $1.8 million in insurance proceeds. It turned out that he was deeply in debt as well as carrying on a very expensive, clandestine affair with a blonde 24 year old stripper, who could not have cared less about him.

Rabinowitz pled guilty to first degree murder and is currently serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole. Stefanie left a young daughter, Haley Sarah, now being raised by her maternal grandmother, Ann Newman. In a bit of poetic justice, Haley received the proceeds of her mother's insurance policies. The money is now in trust for her future. The case is the subject of the book, "Everybody's Best Friend" by Ken Englade.

Stefanie is buried under Stefanie Paula Newman, which is perfectly understandable. I know I would not want my daughter buried with the surname of the person who sent her to an early grave.
