COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - WTVM will air a two-hour documentary, “Truth and Lies: The Menendez Brothers – American Sons, American Murderers,” on Thursday, January 5, 2017 at 9:00P/8:00C.
It was the original trial of the century that captivated the nation. On Thursday the unprecedented two-hour documentary special will detail the Beverly Hills crime that shook a generation. A Hollywood movie executive and his wife, a one-time beauty queen, were brutally slain in the den of their Spanish-style mansion.
Even though the murders were initially and inaccurately blamed on a mafia hit, it turned out the all-American Menendez family was far from perfect. After suspicious, costly spending following the double homicide and a confession to a psychologist, Lyle and Erik Menendez, the heirs of the wealthy couple, were arrested and charged with the grisly murder of their parents.
