Gen Xers remember Blake from the seminal “Little Rascals” show as well as the popular cop drama “Baretta.” But Blake is now known as the other celebrity who killed his wife (in this case Bonnie) and got away with it (guess who the other is). Blake told the courts that he and his late wife couple went out to eat and, after leaving, Blake claims he went back to the restaurant with Bonnie in the car because he left his gun at the table. Yah, right.
Blake said that when he returned to the car, Bonnie was found shot to death. Okay, sure. Unbelievably, he got away with murder. But another jury found him liable for Bakley’s death, and he was ordered to pay her surviving children $30 million. But Blake remains a free man.
