The series will focus on the trial of the Menendez Brothers. In 1996, Lyle and Erik Menendez were sentenced to life in prison without a parole for murdering their parents when they were just 21 and 18 years old, respectively. They were tried separately and eventually convicted in a third trial after hung juries rendered no verdicts in the first two trials.” — EW

Take action: Pegged to the series premiere, victim advocate groups and others working with surviving relatives of family violence can develop and release a toolkit of resources that include information about support groups, tools, and policy briefs about fatal family violence.
