Two Pennsylvania lawmakers have recently introduced measures to give crime victims equal protection under the state constitution as those accused and convicted of committing crimes. It’s called Marsy’s Law - and it’s something that victim advocates, district attorneys, law enforcement and other stakeholders are rallying behind to help level the playing field for victims and their families in the Commonwealth. Named for Marsalee Nicholas, a California woman who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in 1983, Marsy’s Law has become a national movement to ensure victims are treated with fairness and dignity in the criminal justice system. We talk with Pennsylvania Victim Advocate Jennifer Storm to talk about the current situation for crime victims here in the state, and what a change to the state constitution could do for them. Special Guest: Jennifer Storm.

As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
