29-year-old Rob McKernan and his wife, 26-year-old Colleen McKernan, spent New Years Eve together in 2014. But by the end of the night, Colleen would call 911, telling the dispatcher that she had just killed her husband. Prosecutors say she killed him in a fit of drunken anger, but her attorneys claim it was self-defense after being in an abusive relationship for years. This case doesn’t come down to what the jury thinks, but whether the justice system worked. This episode was researched and written by Kathleen McWilliams.

On November 11, 1985, 43-year-old Guillermo Rodrigues was shot and killed in a restaurant parking lot in Brockton, Massachusetts.

In Episode 34, I covered the case of Kelly Cochran, who was accused of murdering her former lover, Christopher Regan. At her trial, Kelly maintained her innocence and instead placed the blame for Christopher's death on her husband, Jason Cochran, who had mysteriously passed away before the case went to trial. In addition to Christopher's death, Kelly was charged with Jason's murder too.    In this Case Update, I pick up where I left off in Episode 34 - after Kelly went on trial for Christopher's murder. I spoke with MJ Dulmage, an author who has close ties to the case, about Kelly's recent plea deal and sentencing for the death of her husband, Jason Cochran.     For more info on MJ's book, please visit http://www.facebook.com/coldfromtheinside.   Please consider supporting Court Junkie with as little as $3 a month via Patreon.com/CourtJunkie.

It's a story that has been told numerous times before - On Halloween night in 2001, Kent Heitholt, a 48-year-old sports editor, was brutally murdered in the Columbia Tribune parking lot as he was leaving work.  Ryan Ferguson and Charles Erickson were arrested years later and charged with murder, although none of the forensic evidence at the scene matched either of the men. The case would slowly fall apart, amid witness recantations, and accusations of corruption. Ryan would eventually be released, but Charlie remains in prison. In this episode, I speak to Charlie and get his side of the story, along with updates in the case. Visit FreeCharlesErickson.com for more info.

You've probably heard of Shaken Baby Syndrome but what you may not know is how controversial it's becoming. Hundreds of people are prosecuted each year in the US after being accused of shaking a baby. But with the emergence of shaken baby syndrome skeptics, many convictions are being overturned. In this episode, I speak with Susan Goldsmith, the writer and producer of the documentary, The Syndrome. The Syndrome focuses on the science (or lack thereof) behind Shaken Baby Syndrome and the potential wrongful conviction cases because of it.

In part 1 of this episode, you'll hear about one woman's nightmare come true. In 1995, 21-year-old Kristine Bunch was abruptly awoken in the early morning hours to discover that her house was on fire. After escaping the flames, she watched in horror as firefighters were unable to save her 3-year-old son who was still trapped inside. Within hours of being released from the hospital, she discovered that detectives had a theory about the fire - someone had started the fire on purpose, and their main suspect was Kristine.  A special thank you to Kristine Bunch for helping me tell her story.

In this Court Junkie Brief, I speak with Alan Hirsch,  a professor and chair of the Justice and Law Studies program at Williams College, in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Alan has also testified as a false confessions expert in over 25 different trials across 16 different states. We talk about why people falsely confess to crimes they didn't commit, the different techniques law enforcement uses in their interrogations and cases involving false confessions. Visit Alan's website - http://www.truthaboutfalseconfessions.com/.   Note: At the time of this recording, Brendan Dassey was set to be released from prison. However, after this was recorded, the federal court blocked his release. Please consider supporting Court Junkie with as little as $3 a month via Patreon.com/CourtJunkie.

Ryan Poston and Shayna Hubers had been dating on and off for about a year when one night in October 2012, a 911 call was placed from Ryan's condo. When officers arrived, they found Ryan dead from multiple gunshot wounds. Shayna claimed it was self-defense even though Ryan had been shot 6 times. I'll go over Shayna's bizarre behavior, the details from the trial, and tell you about a shocking new development that just might change everything.

On February 24, 1986, John Ruetten came home from work to find his newlywed wife on their living room floor, dead from 3 bullet wounds to the chest. Investigators concluded it was a burglary gone wrong, but the case went unsolved for decades. 23 years later, DNA testing that hadn't been available before was conducted and who the new evidence pointed to was shocking.  In Part 2, you'll hear the conclusion of Stephanie's interrogation, the evidence presented at trial, and the final outcome of the case.
