In 2005, Brian Nichols broke out of a courthouse jail, killed a judge, a stenographer, a customs officer and a sheriff's deputy, and then took a woman named Ashley Smith hostage for several hours. She was a drug addict and their time spent together changed both of their lives.
After spending several hours with Smith, Nichols released her from captivity and turned himself in - and she has not touched drugs since that day. The story is now a Hollywood film that's out in theaters this weekend, Sept. 18. It stars David Oyelowo as Brian Nichols and Kate Mara as Ashley Smith.
