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.
