7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - Getting Away with
Melvin Henry Ignatow will never go to jail for
killing his fiancée in 1988, despite iron-clad
evidence that he planned and carried out the
Family members and lawyers from both sides
retrace this judicial travesty, which began when
Ignatow's former girlfriend, Mary Ann Shore,
confessed to helping to commit the murder and
taking photos of the crime as it happened.
Despite an extensive search, the photos were not
found, and the trial proceeded without them,
relying instead on Shore's testimony. To the
shock of nearly everyone, including the judge,
the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. Then
the photos were found. Ignatow was convicted of
perjury and sentenced to five years in jail, but
double jeopardy prevented him for being tried for
the murder. A look at how constitutional
protections occasionally backfire.

7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - The Killer Within
On November 22, 1987, a motorist got out of his
truck to stretch his legs and discovered the
naked body of 19-year-old Kathy Bonney shot 27
Investigators soon revealed that the victim's
father, 44-year-old Tom Bonney, was the murderer.
That Tom was the killer was uncontested. At issue
was whether he suffered from multiple personality
disorder, as demonstrated by a videotape of
Bonney under hypnosis that showed various
personalities. The prosecution argued that Bonney
was enraged to learn that his daughter was
involved with a married man, and that he was
fully aware of his actions. While the jury found
Bonney guilty of first degree murder, the lower's
court's decision was later overturned on a
finding that Bonney was incompetent. Held in a
maximum security prison in Raleigh, North
Carolina, attorneys and expert witnesses discuss
this case and the insanity defense.

Princess Caroline, then Princess Stephanie, who

So why are their lives filled with scandal, and
why can't they stand each other?

Clara Harris was arrested in suburban Houston and
charged with murder. Her weapon of choice - a
$70,000 Mercedes-Benz sedan. AMERICAN JUSTICE:
MURDER BY MERCEDES observes that no one denies
that Harris committed the murder. The question
is, to what degree should she be held
responsible? Why did she do it? Had there been
mitigating circumstances? The tail end of the
crime was caught on video: Clara's car driving in
circles in the hotel's parking lot, seeming to
twice run over her husband's body. But what
happened before the video came on the scene? 
Clara's personality and considers the recent news
of her husband's affair - a combination that led
her to murder. But the events leading up to the
murder were not as publicized. Is it possible
that Clara, a professional, successful woman
leading a seemingly perfect life, just decided
one day to run over her husband?

7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - Marijuana and Murder
The 1988 Anti-Drug Abuse Act, enacted by the
Reagan administration, stiffened sentencing so
that drug dealers who ordered killings were
subject to the death penalty. The first person
convicted and sentenced to death under this law,
however, was not a mafia don or kingpin, but a
small-town marijuana dealer from Piedmont. 
Re-examine this landmark case from the day police
found the remains of Marlin Shuler in an Alabama
whiskey through Clinton's last day in office when
he commuted Chandler's death sentence to life
without parole. Legal experts re-evaluate the
merits, including questionable witness testimony,
as prosecution and defense attorneys and
Chandler, himself, recall this highly politicized

In September 1972, a mob killer named Harry
Aleman gunned down Billy Logan. Bob Lowe
witnessed the killing from behind some bushes a

the case against the notorious hitman, the
government offered Lowe incentives to testify and
agreed to relocate his family through the Witness
Protection Program. But when a corrupt judge
acquitted Aleman, Lowe began a downward spiral of
larceny, alcohol and drug abuse, which drove away
his wife and left him in prison. After finally
putting the pieces of his life back together from

Aleman in jail when revelations about the
original trial came to light. Finally, 25 years
after the fact, Lowe's testimony put Harry Aleman
in prison for life.

Christ's final prophet, and that the murders

followed, the world discovered the true story of
a mother driven to murder her own children. The
citizens whose hearts went out to the woman

him that they were already aware of these
allegations and urged him to "return to his cop
roots" and investigate the Binghams himself. In
