  Was a young girl adopted from Russia capable of murder? Saying they feared for their safety, an American couple gives up the daughter they welcomed into their family. "48 Hours" contributor Troy Roberts revisits the case that he says haunted him for years and forever changed his life.More than two decades ago, "48 Hours" contributor Troy Roberts reported on the heart-wrenching story of a 9-year-old Russian girl who was adopted by an American couple. They called the little girl Caralee, and their lives together started with promise. But a year-and-a-half later, the couple came to believe Caralee was dangerous, even capable of murder. They say she tried to kill her little brother.

Aikman gave a positive review of the Niners quarterback entering the game.

“I’ve liked him for a long time,” Aikman said of Garoppolo. “And I think when you look at this season, 2022, for the short term, I think he’s the right guy to be quarterbacking this team. He’s won a lot of games for the 49ers, and I think he’s playing really good football — especially on third down.”

Garoppolo has the fourth-best passer rating in the NFL this season on third down plays.

He’s excelled on third downs for several years.

Aikman also feels that Trey Lance has a lot of growing left to do. Many people felt the 49ers were a Super Bowl contender with Garoppolo, but not quite as good with Lance.

Lance was knocked out for the season after suffering an injury in Week 1, which allowed Garoppolo to regain the starting job.
