Program: CSI On Trial

In 2006 a shotgun-toting killer murdered a respected farm couple in their Murdock, Nebraska home. Before it was over two innocent men spent nearly a year in jail, the real killers were caught on a lucky break, a crime scene investigator was put on trial for planting evidence, and a family was left confused and divided over how it all could have happened.

Investigative journalist Bill Kelly of NET News spent a year attending trials, interviewing key participants, and reviewing thousands of pages of documents. His research unveils a case that put police procedure out in public and on trial.

It’s also the story of how creative work by a crime scene investigator followed one key piece of evidence…a single gold ring… that revealed the identities of two killers on the verge of getting away with murder.
