Television show asks if Sacramento man was unfairly convicted of killing his parents

Even as her nephew was taken away in shackles for the brutal 2008 double murder of his parents, Angela Amundson held out hope the police and district attorney had the wrong person.

Some five years after Matthew Riley was convinced of killing Steven and Linda Riley at their Natomas home, Amundson received new reason for hope in the form of retired homicide detective Chris Anderson and criminal defense attorney Melissa Lewkowicz.

Anderson and Lewkowicz re-investigate closed homicide cases in hopes of helping the wrongly convicted go free or helping their families move on by reaffirming the police’s findings in their show “Reasonable Doubt,” which is in its first season on Investigation Discovery. The episode about the Matthew Riley murder will air at 10 p.m. PST on Wednesday.

WATCH: Exclusive Sneak Peek of ‘The Accused,’ on Jeffrey MacDonald, Convicted of Killing His Family

When Colette and Jeffrey MacDonald arrived in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in August 1969, they quickly became close friends with another military couple, Rick and Judy Thoesen.

They came to the MacDonald’s home many times over the next several months and spent Thanksgiving with the family while Colette whipped up a tasty Thanksgiving meal for about 25 people.

They quickly found their friendship tested.

On Feb. 17, 1970, MacDonald’s wife, Colette, 26, and daughters Kimberley, 5, and Kristen, 2, were brutally murdered at their home. Jeffrey was the sole survivor.

Is Lyle Menendez Married? The Convicted Murderer Has Had Multiple Relationships

If you find it hard to believe that prison inmates serving life sentences for murder can find love behind bars, then you’ll likely find it even more impossible that Lyle Menendez has found it more than once. But is Lyle Menendez married? The convicted killer has actually tied the knot twice since being convicted in 1996 of murdering his parents with his brother, Erik.

Lyle, now 48 years old and serving his life sentence at Mule Creek State Prison in California, married ex-model Anna Erikkson shortly after he was convicted. However, their love was not to last. After hearing that he’d been writing to another woman, effectively “cheating” on her, Erikkson divorced Lyle in 2001 and he ended up remarrying soon after. This time, it was to Rebecca Sneed in 2003, who would later become an attorney. In fact, according to Menendez Brothers: The Bad Sons, which was part

Is He Innocent? Inside the Case of Green Beret Surgeon Convicted of Killing His Wife and Daughters

For the past 47 years, former Green Beret surgeon Jeffrey MacDonald‘s account of what happened the night his entire family was murdered has remained the same.

MacDonald has said four intruders killed his wife, Colette, 26, and daughters Kimberley, 5, and Kristen, 2, at their Fort Bragg, North Carolina home on Feb. 17, 1970. One of the intruders, he has said, was a woman with long blonde hair, wearing a floppy hat, holding what appeared to be a candle and chanting, “Acid is groovy. Kill the pigs.”

When military police arrived at their home, MacDonald was lying next to his wife in their bedroom; he says he’d been trying in vain to resuscitate her and their two daughters. He was unconscious, with head injuries, several stab wounds and a partially collapsed lung.

Four Lesbians Were Wrongly Convicted of Child Abuse. Why Haven’t They Been Exonerated?

Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez, all now in their early 40s, were found guilty of aggravated sexual assault on a child after two of Ramirez’s nieces, then 7 and 9, claimed the four women had raped them with various objects while they were staying in Ramirez and Mayhugh’s home. As Linda Rodriguez McRobbie explained in a 2013 Slate piece, the case was a product of “a weird, panicked time in recent American history, when the word gay or lesbian was too often conflated with pedophile.” Despite inconsistencies in the girls’ stories; the fact that their father was angry at Ramirez, his former sister-in-law, for rejecting his romantic advances and coming out as a lesbian; and evidence of overt and coded homophobia in the women’s trials, all four ended up behind bars.
