March 16, 2017 — Alessandro Marchi is convicted of the murder of a college girl in a park.

Hi trial is rigged against him. He is unaware that his attorney is having an affair with Maria, Alessandro’s wife, and both prefer that he is convicted and out of the way.

The trial is rigged against him for many reasons. Finally, When his most important witness fails to show up at his trial, he is sentenced to life in prison.

But after he is put in jail, the murders continue.
