Drama probes family murders
Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, Nine, Monday at 8.40pm
THIS true-crime anthology series is a dramatisation of the trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez, who were convicted in 1996 for the murder of their parents.
When Jose and Kitty Menendez are murdered in their home, the police initially investigate the double homicide with links to Jose Menendez’s business that has ties to organised crime.
But as the detectives run down leads, the evidence points the crime into a different direction: the Menendez brothers.
And while watching the events unfolding in the media, criminal defence attorney Leslie Abramson (Edie Falco, pictured) takes an interest in the murders and the brothers.
