    Post Appellate Court Upholds Menendez Brothers Convictions

    POSTED: 3:40 pm PDT September 7, 2005

    LOS ANGELES -- A federal appeals court on Wednesday upheld the convictions of Erik and Lyle Menendez, two brothers convicted of murdering their parents in their Beverly Hills mansion in 1989.The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals left intact a 1998 state appellate court ruling upholding the convictions and life-without-parole sentences.

    The brothers admitted fatally shooting Jose and Kitty Menendez in the home in August 1989 and were convicted of first-degree murder.

    They said they feared their parents were about to kill them to prevent disclosure of the father's sexual molestation of Erik. Prosecutors contended there was no evidence of molestation and said the sons were after their parents' multimillion-dollar estate.

    Jurors deadlocked at their first trial, in which separate juries heard the evidence against each defendant and the judge gave jurors the option of manslaughter convictions based on the sons' belief that they were in danger. more at link:

    Jodi, how're the continual lies and lack of remorse working for you now??? Welcome to Perryville, the only place you'll see 'till you die!
    The Rightfully convicted murderess is the domestic violence abuser- Travis Alexander was the victim of Domestic Violence.
