(Silver Spring, MD) - With recurring roles on popular police drama series such as Homicide: Life on the Street and The Wire, actor Erik Todd Dellums is no stranger to criminal-laced television. Now, he's bringing his "crime-time" credentials to Investigation Discovery to narrate the series KILLER TRIALS: JUDGMENT DAY. This true-crime series examines some of the world's most horrifying and sensational cases to be brought to trial. Each episode recounts a notorious crime and reconstructs the investigation that brings the criminal to justice, using archival footage as well as trial footage, if available, to capture the critical courtroom moments.

Cases featured in KILLER TRIALS: JUDGMENT DAY are headline-making from across the globe. The premiere episode on February 3 at 10 PM looks into the case of the notorious "Railroad Killer," a man who murdered nine people over a span of two years, and whose trial brought his one surviving victim face to face with the man who nearly ended her life. Then at 10:30 PM, KILLER TRIALS investigates "Lesbian Vampire Killers," recounting the true story of a woman from Australia who lured her partner and their friends to kill a man with a bizarre motive in mind - to drink his blood.
