Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. That rhyme has been sung since the Borden axe murders occurred in 1892.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the axe murders that made Lizzie Borden a household name. You've heard the rhyme, now hear the details behind the murders. Lizzie Borden was arrested and tried for the murders of her father and step-mother. But, a jury did not feel as though the prosecution proved its case. Did they get it correct?
