Discovery en Español Presents "LATINOS EN EL CORREDOR DE LA MUERTE"
There are currently 2,843 prisoners on death row in the United States including 375 Latinos.
On December 6, 2005, a hooded man breaks into a house in Houston, Texas, and kills Eduardo Hernández, a member of a local gang called La Tercera Crips. Days later, Wendy Bardales, sister of the victim's girlfriend, identifies the murderer as Juan Balderas and he is sent to Harris County jail, where he waited for a trial for eight and a half years. Yancy decides to quit her job and study legal courses at Houston University.
Narrated and directed by acclaimed "Clandestino" journalist and producer David Beriain, LATINOS EN EL CORREDOR DE LA MUERTE features testimonies from some of Balderas' relatives, Department of Criminal Justice spokespeople, attorneys who are experts in capital punishment, and Juan Meléndez, the last Hispanic who managed to rectify the United States judicial system in a death penalty case.
The new one-hour documentary is a Discovery en Español production headed by Michela Giorelli, Rafael Rodriguez, and Carlos Cediel, and produced by 93 Metros.
