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.
