*Michelle Carter will spend 15 months in prison after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for repeatedly encouraging her boyfriend to commit suicide.

She was sentenced to 2 1/2 years, with 15 months suspended. The judge also granted her a stay of incarceration, meaning she will not have to go to prison until she has exhausted her appeals in state court.


*Netflix is creating a parody true crime TV series called American Vandal. It's a mystery about who is spray-painting dicks onto cars. The spoof is unexpected coming from Netflix, since it helped spur the true crime craze with its documentaries Making a Murderer and The Keepers.

*Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders is coming to NBC on September 26th. It looks... fine? It's an eight-episode series that is apparently trying to emulate American Crime Story.

*Discovery is also doing an eight-part scripted series on Ted Kaczynski called Manhunt: UNABOMBER. It will focus on the FBI agent who used brilliant linguistic techniques to help identify and capture Kaczynski. The series stars Paul Bettany, Chris Noth, Jane Lynch, and Keisha Castle Hughes. The Unabomber was active for nearly 20 years, killing 3 people with his homemade bombs.

*Hulu is developing a true crime anthology series called The Act that will focus on the people at the center of crimes. "In The Act we’re going to show you the human story behind bizarre crimes.” It sounds similar to other anthologies like American Justice, FBI Files, Forensic Files, Disappeared, Snapped, etc. The first episode will focus on Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard.


*Thirteen murder and true-crime podcasts to check out.


*A man killed his wife on an Alaskan cruise ship because she wouldn't stop laughing at him.
