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).
