‘20/20’ Includes Interview with Yang’s Children

‘20/20’ Airs on Friday, July 16 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC

“20/20” features interview with Marni Yang.

A case that sent shock waves through Chicago began when police discovered seven-month pregnant Rhoni Reuter, longtime girlfriend of legendary Chicago Bears defensive back Shaun Gayle, murdered inside her home in a quiet suburb. A media frenzy ensued as authorities searched for the killer. Over three years later, a jury convicted Marni Yang, a single mother of three children, who had been romantically involved with Gayle. “Nightline” anchor Juju Chang sat down with Yang, who claimed she made up a false confession and was wrongly convicted. Yang also opened up about what she says was the motivation behind her false confession as well as her petition for a new trial. “20/20” also features an interview with Yang’s children, Andrew, Emily and Brandon Yang. They discussed the terror they felt as police searched their home, questioned them and allegedly coerced them into making false statements, an allegation the prosecution denies. The two-hour program reports on what Yang’s team sees as new evidence that questions if the right person is in prison and includes interviews with Yang’s current attorney Jed Stone as well as forensic reconstruction experts who firmly believe in Yang’s innocence. “20/20” airs on Friday, July 16 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
