The debut trailer for the two-part Oxygen true crime limited docuseries begins with news clips covering Selena’s death, explaining that Yolanda – who was the president of her fan club – killed the “La Carcacha” singer after Selena allegedly tried to fire her.

“What the public’s been told isn’t exactly what happened in reality,” one person explained. Meanwhile, another woman said that Yolanda has insisted that she “didn’t mean” to kill Selena and that it was “an accident.”

Yolanda then explained that she was speaking out from behind bars because “it’s time to set the story straight.”

“My family gathered the evidence that shows different versions of what was going on,” she continued about the case, while one family member explained that the case was not “simple.”

Yolanda added that she was “scared” and “frightened” leading up to the murder, and one man teased that Selena had a “secret” she was trying to conceal.

“I knew her secrets,” Yolanda continued about the “Como la Flor” singer. “And I think the people deserve to know the truth.”
