Monday TV: A Mysterious Nebraska Murder

What made a handful of people confess to the 1985 murder of a 68-year-old grandmother in Beatrice, Neb.? A new true crime documentary series “Mind Over Murder” (HBO, 10 p.m.) looks into the case, in which the confessors were later exonerated by DNA evidence 20 years later.

A murder even further back, of an Asian-American draftsman by a white autoworker is reviewed in the award-winning 1988 documentary “Who Killed Vincent Chin?” making an encore appearance on “POV” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings) 40 years after the crime, whose perpetrator, despite a confession, never went to jail.

Broadcast is awash with new episodes of game shows with “Don’t Forget the Lyrics!” (Fox, 8 p.m.), “Beat Shazam” (Fox, 9 p.m.) and “Weakest Link” (NBC, 10 p.m.). 

The president turned professor ends his series with a pair of episodes of “The American Presidency with Bill Clinton” (History, 9 p.m.).
