ABC News’ Chief National Correspondent Matt Gutman sits down with Matt Murphy, Senior Deputy District Attorney for Orange County, California’s Homicide Unit, for an inside look at some of Southern California’s highest-profile trials.
Murphy, who has tried over 200 cases since joining the DA’s office, including the one that inspired the podcast and TV series Dirty John, hasn’t lost a case in more than two decades and has never lost a homicide case. In the session, he reveals details about prosecuting some of the nation’s most prolific criminals and serial killers. Murphy walks Gutman through what it takes to go from the front lines of a crime scene to a guilty verdict in court, including the investigations, arrests, and interrogations involved along the way as well as his unyielding mission to seek justice for victims and their families.
Gutman is a multi-award winning correspondent covering, among a variety of assignments, a number of these gritty crime stories prosecuted by Murphy. Gutman gives a behind-the-scenes account of his dogged investigative reporting for “20/20” including what it’s like to uncover breaking news on-the-ground, conduct a jailhouse interview and work with victims’ families who want their voices to be heard.  
ABC News’ “20/20” is an award-winning primetime program anchored by David Muir and Amy Robach. A proven leader in the long-form newsmagazine for over 40 years, “20/20” features hard-hitting investigative reports; in-depth coverage of high profile trials; unforgettable, character-driven stories; and exclusive newsmaker interviews.
