- Includes interviews with eyewitnesses, attorneys and jurors.
By her own admission, Clara Harris had the American dream and destroyed it all. A 44-year-old dentist, Harris was convicted of murdering her orthodontist husband. The case might well have escaped notice if not for Harris's unorthodox choice of a weapon: she ran over her victim in their $70,000 Mercedes sedan. And the crime was captured on film.
MURDER BY MERCEDES observes that no one denies that Harris committed the murder. The question is to what degree should she be held responsible? Why did she do it? Were there mitigating circumstances? What happened before the shocking events captured on the video? AMERICAN JUSTICE® collects testimony from a host of experts and those close to the case in search of answers to these questions.
