Part 6 looks back at the closing arguments and the verdict at the Paul Bernardo murder trial.  The Defence continued to advance it's position that Bernardo was not present when 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French died.  The Crown argued that was a complete fantasy.  In the end the jury took less than eight hours to decide who was telling the truth. All music in this episode written and performed by Lee Rosevere.

Part 5 looks at what happened when Paul Bernardo took the stand to defend himself against two first degree murder charges.  It was the first time he would explain publically what happened to 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French.  His ex-wife had testified earlier that Bernardo strangled both girls with an electrical cord after kidnapping, confining and sexually assaulting them.  Bernardo turned up his charm when he took the stand and had a quick answer for everything.  But after several days of grueling questioning by the Crown his confidence appeared to disappear. All music in this episode written and performed by Lee Rosevere.

Part 4 covers what happened when the Crown's star witness took the stand to testify against Paul Bernardo at his murder trial.  His ex-wife Karla Homolka would spend 17 days on the stand.  She testified about her abusive relationship with Bernardo and described how Bernardo alone killed both Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French.  But things got heated when Defence Lawyer John Rosen cross-examined Homolka.  Host Kathy Kenzora covered the trial from start to finish and provides her first hand account of the verbal sparring between Rosen and Homolka. All music in this episode written and performed by Lee Rosevere.
