Joseph Lyle Menendez and Erik Galen Menendez are brothers who are known for their conviction in a highly publicized trial for the shotgun murders in 1989 of their wealthy parents, entertainment executive Jose Menendez and his wife Mary "Kitty" Menendez
The murders occurred on August 20, 1989, in the den of the family's 722 North Elm Drive home in Beverly Hills. Jose and Kitty were tired that summer evening because the family had been out shark fishing on a chartered yacht, Motion Picture Marine, until midnight the previous day. With Lyle and Erik out for the evening, both Jose and Kitty retired to the den to watch television. Neighbors would later report hearing what sounded like firecrackers around 10pm, but dismissed it as nothing to be concerned about. Jose was shot point-blank in the back of the head with a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun. Kitty, awakened by the shots, sprang from the couch and made a run for the hallway but was shot in the leg, causing it to break. She fell then was shot several times in the arm, chest, and face, leaving her unrecognizable. Both Jose and Kitty were then shot in the kneecap to make the crime appear mob related. The brothers drove off and dumped their shotguns on Mulholland Drive and bought tickets at a local movie theater, seeing the movie "License to Kill" for use as an alibi. When the brothers returned home at 11:47 pm, Lyle called 911.
