Music and the Murderers: Behind Prison Walls at Bedford Hills
Just an hour north of New York City, Bedford Hills is home to some of New York’s most notorious murderers. We spent time getting to know some of them in an unusual setting: music class. The crimes were violent and heinous. Kim Brown is serving time for the death of her last music teacher. Ivié De Molina was involved in the murders of two people. And you remember Pam Smart; her murder trial made national headlines. All of them are practicing and performing gospel and R&B in this unusual rehabilitation program run by volunteer musicians. We speak to the women of Bedford Hills openly and candidly about the crimes that brought them here, and the music that helps them escape -- at least temporarily.
