The 2016 documentary Killing For Love directed by Karin Steinberger and Marcus Vetter focuses on 1985 murders of wealthy Virginia socialites of Nancy and Derek Haysom and the subsequent murder conviction of their daughter Elizabeth and her German boyfriend Jens Soering.

Derek and Nancy Haysom were discovered brutally murdered at their home in Lynchburg, Virginia in March 1985, followed by the arrest and conviction of the couple’s daughter Elizabeth, a scholarship student at the University of Virginia, and her boyfriend Jens Söring, the brilliant son of a German diplomat. It quickly set off a media frenzy, becoming the first trial of its kind to be nationally televised. But what if the justice system got it all wrong…?

The film features the voices of Daniel Brühl (Rush) and Imogen Poots (Frank & Lola) as Elizabeth and Jens.
