In the late 1960s, Kenneth McDuff was sentenced to death for his role in the murder of three teenagers near Fort Worth, Texas. But his sentence was commuted to life in prison after the Supreme Court overturned the death penalty, and when a wave of new convictions in the 1980s led Texas to parole scores of existing inmates to make room for new arrivals, McDuff was freed.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® reveals how he wasted no time in killing again, and by 1993 was back behind bars, this time for murdering a 28-year-old accountant and a pregnant, 22-year-old mother of two. McDuff's case sparked a firestorm of outrage and controversy in Texas, and was the centerpiece of a law-and-order campaign leading the state to triple its prison capacity.
Drawing on interviews with reporters, politicians, law enforcement officers, the victims' families and McDuff himself, FREE TO MURDER AGAIN is a compelling examination of a bloodthirsty killer and the legal reforms wrought by his highly-publicized case.
