Brothers Erik and Lyle Menendez shot their parents with more than a dozen rounds from a shotgun in their Beverly Hills, California, mansion in 1989 and said during their trial in the 1990s that they were tired of his father’s sexual abuse, which his mother preferred to ignore.
The murder of the then businessman of the “RCA Victor” record company and of the former beauty queen attracted the attention of the country, which followed the outcome of the case in 1996 when the brothers were sentenced by a jury to life imprisonment without the right to parole for the deaths.
