On August 15th, 1995, 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.

    I had forgotten the manic-depressive side to Bernardo. Learnt a few more facts about the trial than had known before. Can't wait for next installment. By the way, your voice is perfect for podcasts.
