ITV Daytime’s resident judge, Robert Rinder, returns to explore more of Britain’s worst crimes in the second series of Judge Rinder’s Crime Stories.
 
Used to ruling the courtroom in his own hit TV series, respected criminal defence barrister, Judge Rinder, steps out from behind the bench to take a closer look at a variety of major offences.
 
The returning series (10 x 60’) delves deep into each real-life case using eyewitness accounts, CCTV footage and news reports to reconstruct defining moments. From murders to extreme cases of fraud, the series examines the police efforts that helped solve these crimes, as well as looking into miscarriages of justice. 
 
Crime Stories will explore reports including the infamous case of Mick Philpott, jailed for the death of six of his children, the murder of 67-year-old Rita Stephens by her own son and a gang who targeted the elderly by pretending to be the police.

Police are called to a brutal stabbing on the M25 that results in the death of 21-year-old Stephen Cameron. Police have a suspect, but what follows becomes an international manhunt. This is the story of one of Britain's most notorious criminals, Kenneth Noye.
