CANADIAN couple Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo became known as the Ken and Barbie killers during their murder spree throughout the 1990s.
A four-part series chronicling the trial of the two comes out via Discovery+ on Sunday, December 12, 2021.
How can I watch Ken and Barbie Killers: The Lost Murder Tapes part one?
Season one of the four-part docuseries is set to premiere on Discovery+ at 9pm ET on Sunday night.
The show will also be available to watch on Investigation Discovery, a television channel.
According to a preview from the show, law professor Alan Young recounts the details of one of the couple's murder victims.
"It’s an unbelievable thing to commit these crimes," he said.
"It’s another thing to actually create a record of it so that in some dark moments in your basement you can go back and look at these things and feel proud about the depravity you’ve shown."
Homolka and Bernardo not only allegedly drugged, raped, and killed young women, they also allegedly recorded the traumatic events on a video camera.

Who are the Ken and Barbie killers?
Born in 1970 in Ontario, Canada, Karla Homolka met Paul Bernardo in 1987 at a veterinary convention.
The two quickly became enthralled with each other, and started dating shortly after they met.
In December of 1990, Homolka and Bernardo drugged, raped, and murdered Homolka’s 15-year-old sister, Tammy.
They claimed Bernardo was allegedly upset that Homolka was not a virgin when they began to date, so her younger sister was given up as a "virgin sacrifice."
Tammy's death was originally ruled an accident, and the couple continued to take in young women to assault and sometimes kill.
Homolka eventually told the police Bernardo had coerced her to provide him with victims, but video footage the couple had taken reportedly proved her to be guilty as well.
With six tapes of evidence, police were able to sentence the two to prison.
Bernardo was convicted in 1995 of first-degree murder, kidnapping, and aggravated sexual assault. He is serving a life sentence in Ontario.
Dubbed The Scarborough Rapist, Bernardo also killed Kristen French, 15, and Leslie Mahaffy, 14, in the early 1990s.
Homolka was convicted of manslaughter, and served 12 years in prison.
After her release in 2005, she married Thierry Bordelais; the two reportedly have multiple children together.
The couple were dubbed the Ken and Barbie killers based on their seemingly good looks and wealthy status.
