Among the fundamental tenets of constitutional law are the right not to be tried twice for the same crime and the principle that all people are innocent until proven guilty. The case of Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald suggested otherwise.

7-8pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - Suicide by Execution
On Saturday, July 20, 1996, Daniel Colwell drove to a Georgian Wal-Mart and killed Mitchell and Judith Bell in the crowded parking lot, despite the fact that she didn't even know the couple.

At his competency hearing, both prosecution and defense argued that Colwell was mentally ill, and the defense worried that if he was sentenced to death, it was possible that others would be inspired to follow his example. Nonetheless, he was deemed fit to stand trial and, in the end, won the sentence that he originally desired. Now, however, Colwell is under medication, and no longer wants to die. Legal scholars, attorneys for Colwell and the prosecution, and others close to the case re-examine the controversial trial and its aftermath.
