Nancy Grace Revisits the Murder of Her Friend in Her New Series, ‘Injustice': ‘Victims Have the Right to Be Heard’

Nancy Grace Revisits the Murder of Her Friend in Her New Series, ‘Injustice': ‘Victims Have the Right to Be Heard’
Nancy Grace was floored by the 2005 murder of her close friend Pamela Vitale. But as hard as it was to process the loss, what came next was equally challenging: Police initially identified Vitale’s husband, prominent criminal defense attorney Daniel Horowitz, as a suspect.

Grace knew in her gut that Horowitz didn’t murder his wife — and just 5 days after the crime, the real culprit, a 16-year-old neighbor, was arrested and eventually sentenced to life in prison.

All of this unfolds in the first episode of Oxygen’s new series “Injustice With Nancy Grace,” which examines little known cases involving wrongful accusations, botched investigations, suppressed evidence, unclear motives, or unjust sentences. In the premiere, she looks at the Vitale case and gives Horowitz a chance to share what was going through his mind through the tragedy and its aftermath.

Nightmare Cinema Trailer #2 Invites You to a Very Scary Night at the Movies
We have a brand new trailer for the upcoming horror anthology movie Nightmare Cinema. Horror history is littered with great horror anthologies, such as Creepshow, Trick 'r Treat and Tales From the Hood.

As such, the studio has decided to drop this new trailer, which features Mickey Rourke playing host to some unsuspecting victims into this twisted world. It's a lot to process.

The trailer itself sets up the connective tissue that exists between all of these segments. Former Hollywood heavyweight and Oscar-nominee Mickey Rourke is a creepy theater projectionist who is leading these poor souls through these various horrors. We get glimpses of each segment, but not enough to really totally understand what any of them individually will consist of.

It will be a guest-starring role, but it has yet to be confirmed just how many episodes McDonnell will appear in.

Mary is probably most well-known for her starring role on TNT's Major Crimes, which wrapped after six seasons in January 2018.

The show was beloved by fans, but it was a casualty of a change in focus for the cabler's scripted series, and many fans were left unsatisfied with the ending.
