Based on the Evidence

Each week we present the true stories of people who've already stood trial for committing violent crimes, and see if we can determine whether the defendant was found guilty or not guilty based on the evidence from the actual trial. Every episode reveals the actual trial outcome so you'll never wonder whodunnit, though you may wonder if the jury got it right!
