(Newser) – The widow of Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff's older son, who committed suicide last year, said she'd "spit" on her father-in-law if she ever saw him. Stephanie Madoff Mack said she holds Madoff "fully responsible for killing my husband, and I'd spit in his face." Mark Madoff, 46, was found hanged in his New York apartment on the second anniversary of his dad's arrest. His 2-year-old son was asleep in the home when he killed himself.

Mack—whose autobiography, The End of Normal: A Wife's Anguish, A Widow's New Life, comes out next week—is the first member of the Madoff family to grant an interview. It's airing Friday on ABC's 20/20, reports the New York Daily News.
