Making A Murderer: Analysis From Angenette Levy (Local 12)

Making A Murderer: Analysis From Angenette Levy (Local 12) 
SPONSOR: OMEGA PROCESSING SOLUTIONS
Making A Murderer, the wildly popular Netflix documentary, is back in the news with the successful appeal of Brendan Dassey. We check in with WKRC Local 12's Angenette Levy, who covered the case locally for her then-Green Bay, Wisconsin affiliate. 
Dassey, now 26, was convicted of intentional homicide at the age of 17 and sentenced to life in prison. His videotaped interrogation and confession, which he recanted at trial, substantially contributed to his conviction. 
Dassey's conviction was overturned by US Magistrate Judge William E. Duffin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 12, 2016, on the basis that his confession was involuntary and unconstitutionally coerced. He was ordered to be released within 90 days unless the state decides to retry him.

Janet Harrah is a Senior Director, Center for Economic Analysis and Development at NKU.
Harrah is studying whether or not food stamps can provide adequately for a family and she, her husband and two children are living by that budget for a year.

- Is the best deal always in line with the most unhealthy?
- How much time does she spend preparing her food now?
- What's been her biggest challenge? 
- What does her family think?
We also talk other NKY economic issues:
- Regionalism - is it good for NKY?
How is NKY doing? Campbell County doing against its regional competitors?
- How do we get NKU students to spend money in Fort Thomas?
- What does the 2020 jobs outlook look like?
