“Killing for Love” True Crime Documentary Coming April 17 from IFC Entertainment

On April 17, IFC Entertainment will release the English and German true crime documentary Killing for Love (DVD: $24.98). On March 30, 1985, Lynchburg, VA, couple Derek and Nancy Haysom were discovered brutally murdered at their home. The arrest and conviction of the couple’s daughter Elizabeth (a scholarship student at the University of Virginia), and her boyfriend Jens Söring (the brilliant son of a German diplomat), set off a media frenzy, becoming the first trial of its kind to be nationally televised. But what if the justice system got it all wrong? Directed by Marcus Vetter and Karin Steinberger and featuring the voices of Daniel Brühl and Imogen Poots, Killing for Love untangles the web of romantic obsession and betrayal that may have led an innocent man to make the ultimate sacrifice.
