The new season of TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES premieres on Monday, January
7 at 10 PM (E/P) and includes a prison interview with former New England
Patriots and Indianapolis Colts linebacker, Eric Naposki. In 2012, Naposki was
sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his lover's millionaire
boyfriend in 1994, but he still maintains his innocence. Then on Monday,
January 14 at 10 PM (E/P), Jones covers the trial of Casey Anthony, who was
acquitted of murdering her toddler, Caylee Anthony, in July 2011. The episode
includes interviews with Judge Stan Stickland as well as defense lawyer Jose
Baez in a powerful interview that gives viewers incomparable insight into how
the defense functioned and, in the end, how they won. Jones also analyzes the
details behind what the jury saw that those outside of the courtroom missed in
their acquittal of Casey Anthony.

"Our fans love getting to the heart of headline-making cases in TRUE CRIME,"
said Henry Schleiff, president of Investigation Discovery. "Aphrodite uses her
unconventional and unique instincts to expose hard truths about cases that
true-crime fans may have been too quick to judge during the media firestorm."

Other cases explored this season include: Stephanie Lazarus, an LAPD detective
convicted of murdering newlywed Sheri Rasmussen over jealousy; Narcy Novack,
who orchestrated the brutal murders of her husband, Ben Novack, and
mother-in-law, Bernice Novack, over their inheritance of Miami's legendary
Fountainbleu Hotel; and Wall Street motivational speaker Jeffrey Locker, who
had a death wish and whose own murder doubled as a suicide.
