The series opens with the episode Wife Killer or Defence? (broadcast Tuesday 9th June at 10pm) which centres on the 2017 shooting death of Beth "Chandra" Lawson by her husband Bryan Steven Lawson.

Chandra was killed in the couple's living room and the prosecution believe that Bryan murdered his wife in cold blood in front of their toddler son.

Added to that, the shooting and the events leading up to it were caught on home surveillance camera.

But Bryan claims that after years of abuse, he was acting to protect himself and his young son - and that the video evidence will prove it.

Facing a potential sentence of 60 years in prison, Bryan and his legal team are shown as they build their defence.

Along the way, we are given extraordinary access to Bryan and his representatives as he faces significant challenges and revelations, some of which shake him to his foundations.

Ultimately, the episode hands on one question: was this a cold-blooded murder or a justified act of self-defence?
