2. Susan Smith is escorted from the Union County Courthouse Friday, July 28, 1995 after the jury delivered a verdict of life in prison. Smith was convicted last week of the drowning deaths of her two sons Alex and Michael. 4. Erik and Lyle Menendez were found guilty of the 1989 murder of their wealthy parents Jose and Mary “Kitty” Menendez. The trial became a national sensation after it was broadcast live on Court TV. In July 1996 the brothers were sentenced to life in prison without parole. Lyle is being held in Mule Creek State Prison and Erik is incarcerated at the Pleasant Valley State Prison – both have since married.
