5interview with e-networkThe producers of the E! Entertainment Network show “Too Young To Kill” made a trip to Idaho to interview Patti Murphy about the Sarah Johnson murder trial. Sarah Johnson was 15 years old living in Bellevue, Idaho when she took a high powered hunting rifle and murdered her mother and father because they objected to her dating an older man.  Murphy had provided daily newspaper coverage of the 6-week trial in 2005 as a freelance reporter for the Twin Falls Times-News, working alongside national reporters from Court TV, 20/20, and Dateline NBC. Her reporting was picked up nationally by the Associated Press, and it won a first place award of excellence from the Idaho Press Club.  She previously has been interviewed about the trial by other national network shows on the Discovery Channel and the Oxygen Channel.
