Lawyers who represented Timothy McVeigh, Ted Bundy, Jodi Arias, and Clive Doyle (a former Branch Davidian who was at the Waco, Texas, siege) star in a new show on Oxygen called "In Defense Of." On "Megyn Kelly Today," they convened to discuss chilling, intimate details of their cases.

John Henry Browne, who defended serial killer Ted Bundy, recalls how Bundy proudly bragged about the actual body count. “When he was in Tallahassee, one of the detectives said something to him, like, ‘We've got you on 37 homicides,’ Browne said. “Ted looked at him and said, ‘You better add a digit to that’ ... he told me he'd killed over 100 people.”

Chris Tritico defended Timothy McVeigh, who in 1995 killed 168 people with a bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Tritico said he was “pleasantly surprised that [McVeigh] was absolutely not crazy” when they first met. They even became friends, as he told Kelly.

“You have to understand every aspect of their life … I understood more about Tim McVeigh than his parents did,” Tritico said. “Look, he was never going to come to my house for Thanksgiving. I don't mean that kind of friend. But we had a connection that most people would never have.”
