Inside the Courtroom

Find out all the details from comedian Matt Walker, who was a member of the jury for the murder trial, as he recounts his experiences to his friend and fellow comedian Stephen Kramer Glickman.
The victim, Amelia Espinoza
On February 2, 2011, Moises Meraz-Espinoza got into a fight with his mother, reached for a cord, and used it to strangle her to death. Over the next two days he dismembered her body in the shower using power tools, leaving parts of it in an unplugged freezer in their living room, while carrying her skull around in a backpack. Matt Walker was a member of the jury that convicted him, and this is the story of the case and trial from inside the courtroom.
