TBS Today, June 8

Our main story today is an analysis of what the new charges in the Jasper Wu murder case mean for the defendants.

If they are one day convicted, sentencing will be affected in this case by California's youth offender law and also the Three Strikes law.

We spoke to experts to understand what it all means. And we also explain how Pamela Price's prepared statement about the case didn't fully add up.

It's a story you won't find anywhere else.
