A shocking, real-life thriller that follows the high-profile murder trial of North Carolina author Michael Peterson, who was arraigned in 2001 for the murder of his wife after her body was discovered lying in a pool of blood on the stairway of the couple's upscale Durham home. Did Kathleen Peterson fall down the stairs, or was it cold-blooded murder? As the mystery unravels, de Lestrade's cameras are granted unusual access to Peterson's lawyers, home, and immediate family.

It seems if someone is in court because of a suspicious background, there’s usually a reason for that. Michael Peterson seemed creepy because it had happened before, and he was just not upset.

I stuck with it for about 30 mins. It must have been a reenactment, didn't like hand held camera and so many points of view. Not the way I want to spend an evening.

WOW! fascinating, compelling look at our legal system. This is NOT a Hollywood or television-series view of how the judicial system operates. you'll love not-knowing: guilt or innocence?

Beginning with a horrific murder this miniseries documentary raises many many questions. It is a fascinating true crime that follows those involved up close and personal from indictment to final jury verdict. Captivating.
