Part 5 looks at what happened when Paul Bernardo took the stand to defend himself against two first degree murder charges.  It was the first time he would explain publically what happened to 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French.  His ex-wife had testified earlier that Bernardo strangled both girls with an electrical cord after kidnapping, confining and sexually assaulting them.  Bernardo turned up his charm when he took the stand and had a quick answer for everything.  But after several days of grueling questioning by the Crown his confidence appeared to disappear. All music in this episode written and performed by Lee Rosevere.
