The documentary, created by a subsidiary of the Discovery Channel, claims that the convicted killer Rogers confessed to having been paid by OJ himself to break into Nicole Brown’s home and steal a pair of valuable earrings, worth $20,000.

Rogers, who is said to be responsible for somewhere between 70 and 80 murders across the USA, also claimed OJ instructed him to kill “the bitch” if he had to. Rogers is said to have already been familiar with OJ’s wife, having socialised with her when he moved from Ohio to Los Angeles.

The new documentary, produced by Investigation Discovery, is entitled ‘My Brother the Serial Killer’ and features extensive interviews with Roger’s brother Clay.

Ex-professional American footballer and actor OJ was married to Nicole Brown for seven years. He was acquitted of his wife’s murder in 1995 after an extensive high profile trial. However, Simpson was jailed for armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008 and is currently serving a 33 year prison sentence.
