Welcome to the eighth episode of The Court TV Podcast. Every week, Court TV anchors Vinnie Politan and Seema Iyer will dive into the real-life deceptions, betrayals and murders that lead to justice in the courtroom. If you love geeking-out on trials and crime, you’ve landed on the perfect spot.
Killer Girlfriend Murder Trial – Part 1: WI v. Ezra McCandless
The Killer Girlfriend trial is underway in Wisconsin where Ezra McCandless is accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death. It’s a fascinating story involving gender identity; sadism and infidelity. Vinnie and Seema will preview the trial and play a game of “Is It Admissible?” The murder-for-hire trial of Katie Magbanua and Sigfredo Garcia has come to an end. How will the split verdict impact the potential case against the people suspected of hiring the killers of law professor Dan Markel? Vinnie and Seema will break it down for us. They’ll also give updates on the case of Michael Drejka, who was convicted of manslaughter for killing a man for parking in a handicap spot – and the latest on the murder of Joshua Brown, who was killed just days after Amber Guyger was sentenced. For the latest updates and full trial coverage, watch Court TV.
