Chevie1_small An investigative documentary involving white supremacists and a triple murder in Arkansas in 1996. For the first time, evidence is made public that was never presented in court. For the first time, pre-trial tapes made by Chevie Kehoe's accusers are aired. For the first time, in interviews conducted by mail, Chevie Kehoe tells his side of the story. Attorneys for the defense and prosecution speak their mind. People who knew the Kehoe family offer information and insights that point--as does the evidence--to another suspect. A close, troubling examination of a trial that may have convicted the wrong men, sending one to death row and the other to prison for life without parole.
