The Menendez Murders: Lyle and Erik Menendez | Brothers Behind Bars Epi 16
Lyle and Erik Menendez shot their parents in their Beverly Hills home in 1989. The boys initially denied having anything to do with the murders, but soon were arrested and charged with 1st degree murder and were sentenced to life without parole.
In the first trial, the defense was allowed to bring into evidence the fact that the boys claimed they had been sexually abused by their father since they were little boys. In the second, that evidence was not allowed.
