State Vs Hayes

Huntsville prison, Texas, 1959, Elyese Dukie is on Death Row for the murder of two people. Tomorrow she goes to court for the last time. But tonight Elyese reveals the one thing she won't tell the court or the string of psychiatrists sent to diagnose her; that she is not alone in her cell... John Hayes is in there with her. 

Psychopath, or seductress? Murderer, or manipulator? Psychiatric hospital, or the electric chair?
