The 2005 murder of young photographer Teresa Halbach shocks the central Wisconsin community of Manitowoc County. A grisly crime scene of her burned bones is discovered at the family auto salvage business of Steven Avery, recently released from prison after serving 18 years for a rape he didn't commit. Two years earlier, DNA evidence exonerated him. But now arrested, charged and convicted of the photographer's murder, Avery's case becomes the subject of the popular documentary "Making a Murderer," on Netflix, in which defense attorneys cast doubt on Avery's guilt once again.
The 1980 murder of Scarsdale diet doctor, Herman Tarnower, shocks the nation. His lover and headmistress of a prestigious girls' school is arrested and convicted in a sensational trial in the suburbs of New York City. Jean Harris claims the shooting was accidental when the doctor struggled for her handgun to prevent her attempt at suicide. This true story of wealth, fame and jealousy garners sympathy for Harris as a long-time girlfriend rejected by Tarnower and replaced with a younger woman.
