Killer Women with Piers Morgan continues tonight, examining the case of Amber Wright.
Killer Women with Piers Morgan sees Piers sit down to interview these convicted female murderers in the high security prisons they now call home. Coming face to face with the women behind these unspeakable crimes, Piers delves into each complex case to try and uncover the truth and gain insight into whether justice has been served.
In this second episode, Piers travels to Homestead Correctional Institution in Florida to meet Amber Wright who, at the age of 15 conspired with a group of friends to murder her ex-boyfriend - an innocent teenage boy who was beaten, shot, and kneecapped before his corpse was burnt and his remains thrown in a quarry.
Described by the investigating detective as the “most dangerous 15 year old” ever encountered, Piers teases from this angelic-faced murderer what made a typical teenage girl conspire to kill Seath Jackson.
Next, Piers travels to meet Seath’s parents in Summerfield, Florida, for whom the raging grief still burns at the indescribably cruel loss of their son. Their visceral anger stands in stark contrast to Amber’s cool demeanour.
As the film develops it soon emerges that Amber was a central player in the plot to kill Seath. But will Amber take responsibility for her actions? Was this merely an adolescent spat that spiralled into horrific, impulsive violence, or is the striking young woman who sits before Piers actually a cold-hearted killer?
Killer Women with Piers Morgan airs tonight on ITV from 9:15PM.
