Joseph Lyle Menendez and Erik Galen Menendez, also known as the Menendez Brothers, were two siblings who murdered both of their parents with a shot gun in 1989. Their father was shot at point blank range in the head, while their mother in an attempt to flee was shot in the leg. The blood caused her to slip and fall, and she was shot several more times - in the arms, chest and face. 
A few weeks before the murders their mother had mentioned to her psychiatrist that she was concerned her sons with sociopaths. In the weeks after the murders the brothers spent and extortionate amount of money on luxury items and this was what brought police attention to them, as they had not originally been suspected of the murders.

Marybeth Tinning is led by sheriff Barney Waldron to the Schenectady County courtroom for a bail hearing set at $100,000. Tinning was charged with the death of her 4-month-old daughter, Tammi Lynn, and suspected in the deaths of her other seven children.
She was eventually found guilty of murdering Tammi Lynn, and confessed to the murders of two of her sons - although she is thought to have killed all of her children, none of whom lived past five years and whose deaths had originally been attributed to natural causes.
