New Baltimore couple’s murderer subject of ‘Deadly Women’ TV show

A young woman’s role in the horrific murders of a New Baltimore couple will be subject of an Investigation Discovery episode Friday.

Samantha Bachynski’s involvement in the deaths of Scott and Melissa Berels will be the topic of the ID channel’s “Deadly Women” series at 10 p.m. Friday.

Macomb Daily staff writer Jameson Cook was interviewed as part of the broadcast.

Bachynski was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and several other charges along with Patrick Selepak for the 2006 slayings of the Berels, both 27, in their home. Melissa had befriended Selepak, who was the leader of a crime spree with Bachynski that also included the murder of a 53-year-old man in Genesee County in the days following the murders of the Berels’.

Selepak first fatally strangled Melissa Berels, who was pregnant, and then with Bachynski’s help tortured Scott Berels before strangling him. Bachynski injected bleach into Scott Berels.

Tell-tale signs of a murderer: Two actions reveal a man killed his stepdaughter

Convicted murderer Miles Evans tried to fool investigators with an emotional plea following the disappearance of his nine-year-old stepdaughter, but two key blunders blew his cover.

Zoe Evans went missing from her home in Warminster, UK, on January 11, 1997, and according to a new documentary, the televised police appeal Evans gave alongside her mother Paula three days later was ladened with giveaway signs that outed him as a liar.

Attempts to deflect attention away from himself backfired, and his body language gave a key indication that Evans, a Private in the Royal Logistics Corps, was responsible for the young girl’s disappearance, Daily Mail reported.

Investigators would later discover that Evans woke Zoe in her bed before punching her in the face and suffocating her with

Swamp Murders episode “Stranger in the Night”

When Sharyn Kills Back’s friend, Barbara Bouknight, left her during a nighttime walk, she never imagined she’d never see Sharyn Killsback again. For two decades no one knew what really happened to her.

 

According to Texas detectives, it was 1985 when Sharyn Kills Back left her Arlington apartment to visit a friend. She had begun the walk with Barbara, who suddenly decided not to go. By the time Barbara went back to look for

‘The most evil murderer Ireland has ever known’ – US TV recreates Graham Dwyer murder case

A US TV broadcaster has recreated the murder of Elaine O’Hara by Graham Dwyer and the subsequent murder investigation for a true-crime docudrama.

The programme is titled ‘Yes, Master’ and is part of the Married With Secrets series on the Investigation Discovery channel.

Dublin architect Dwyer was found guilty of stabbing the childcare worker to death in August 2012.

Elaine O’Hara’s remains were not found until over a year after the murder and Dwyer was subsequently convicted in 2015.

The programme tells the audience that it was assumed the victim had taken her own life and that the conviction came about because of a combination of luck and dogged police work.

It also details how Dwyer manipulated his vulnerable victim during their secret relationship before he lured her to the spot where he murdered her.

Has Netflix Found Its Next Making a Murderer?

Once upon a time, Making a Murderer’s intense focus on a fishy-seeming murder case—one that invited viewers to serve as both judge and jury—led scores of people to compare the show to Serial, the hit podcast generally credited with spurring the recent true-crime revival. Now, though, the Netflix series’s own success—and the long gap between its first season and its second, which still hasn’t premiered—has left fans and commentators hungry for another show to compare to Making a Murderer itself. Was Netflix’s Amanda Knox documentary the next Making a Murderer? (No, it was a one-off movie.) What about Discovery Channel’s Killing Fields? (Nah, reviews were mixed, and it never really captured the zeitgeist.) Will an upcoming adaptation of The Von Bulow Affair do the trick? (Maybe, though if it’s airing on Investigation Discovery, probably not.)

It’s possible, of course, that there is no “next” Making a Murderer.

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

The savagery of deadly caretaker Sara Moore will be known far beyond Albany.

Moore, 37, formerly of Wynantskill, will be one of three killers profiled in the episode, titled “The Vulnerable.” The show will include interviews with Albany County Assistant District Attorney Shannon Sarfoh, who prosecuted the case and heads the Special Victims Unit, as well as with Law Beat, which is quite familiar with the case.

Moore faced so much damning evidence that her plea bargain still carried 25 years to life, the prison sentence most

‘Making a Murderer’: Steven Avery’s Lawyer Files Motion for New DNA Tests

The lawyer representing “Making a Murderer” subject Steven Avery has filed a motion demanding physical evidence from the murder of Teresa Halbach for further scientific testing that she claims didn’t exist during the trial.

On Friday, Kathleen Zellner hand-delivered the motion at the Manitowoc Circuit Court, a spokesperson for the Midwest Innocence Project told TheWrap. In the filing, Zellner revealed that “Mr. Avery has already completed a series of tests that will conclusively establish his innocence” and that she intends to reveal the identity of an alternate suspect once she has the test results.

Avery’s lawyers called the proposed analyses “the most comprehensive, thorough and advanced forensic testing ever requested by a criminal defendant in the State of Wisconsin.”

In the 45-page motion, Avery asks for “post-conviction testing of physical evidence,” adding that “considerable progress has been made in forensic DNA methods, procedures
