Joseph Lyle Menendez and Erik Galen Menende are American brothers from Beverly Hills, California. They became a national sensation when their trial was broadcasted.

The two brothers were convicted in a high-profile criminal trial in 1994 for the murder they committed in 1989. The brothers killed their wealthy parents, entertainment executive Jose and his wife Mary (Kitty).

Initially, the two brothers were not regarded as suspects. However, within weeks of the murder, they started spending the fortune lavishly. As a result, the police knocked on their door.

During the trial, the two brothers claimed that they killed their parents because of years of sexual and psychological abuse. The juries deadlocked in both trials, but in the retrial, the juries both rejected the claims of the defense.

Joseph and Erik were sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of a parole. The documentary focuses on the Court TV broadcast of the trial in 1993, and some of the behind the scenes parts. Get a better and more inside look of the trial that shocked the nation.
