The Menendez Brothers Wiki
Lyle and Erik Menendez, who are brothers, were found guilty of killing their parents, Jose and Kitty Menendez, at their luxury home in Beverly Hills in 1989. In a picture with no date, the two boys can be seen standing next to their Cuban-American businessman father.
Joseph Lyle Menéndez, who was born on January 10, 1968, and Erik Galen Menéndez, who was born on November 27, 1970, are brothers from the United States. In 1996, they were found guilty of killing their parents, José and Mary Louise “Kitty” Menéndez.
During the trial, the brothers said they were killed because they were afraid their father would hurt them after they said they would tell everyone about the years of mental, physical, and sexual abuse he had done to them.
On the other hand, the prosecution said that the brothers did it to get their hands on their father’s multimillion-dollar fortune. They were tried by two different juries, one for each brother.
But neither jury could agree, so there was a mistrial. In the second trial, they were both tried by the same jury, which found them guilty and sent them to jail for life without the chance of parole.

Erik and Lyle Menendez were reunited in April 2018 at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego, California. Both of them had been given life terms without the chance of parole.
Even though they have been in jail since 1996, the brothers have been able to live pretty normal lives. Lyle Menendez has been married twice. Anna Eriksson, who used to be his model wife, wrote to him and that’s how he first met her. In 1996, they said their vows over the phone.
But five years later, when Anna found out that Lyle was talking to another woman, they broke up. He might have been talking to Rebecca Sneed Menendez, who Lyle married in 2003 and is still married to at the time this article was written. Soon after they got married, Rebecca went to law school to help Lyle.
