The Menendez Brothers Wiki
Lyle Menendez and Erik Menendez are brothers who were found guilty in 1989 of killing their parents Jose and Kitty Menendez at their Beverly Hills home. In an undated photograph, the two men can be seen standing with their father who was a successful Cuban-American businessman.
Joseph Lyle Menendez was born January 10, 1968 and Erik Galen Menendez was born November 27, 1970. They are two siblings who live in the United States. In 1996, they were found guilty of killing their parents Jose and Mary Louise “Kitty” Menendez. The brothers said that they killed their parents because they feared that Jose and Mary Louise “Kitty” Menendez would harm them if they exposed him for years’ worth of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.
On the other hand the prosecution argued that their motive was to inherit the multi-million dollar estate of their father. Each brother was tried separately by a jury. Both juries, however, were deadlocked and the mistrial resulted. In the second trial they were all tried by one jury. The jury found them guilty, and sentenced the defendants to life without parole.
