Exclusive: Father Acquitted Of Murdering The Drunk Driver Who Killed His Sons Breaks His Silence (VIDEO)

In an exclusive interview, Dr. Phil sits down with David and Cindy Barajas just weeks after David was acquitted of murder charges in connection with the shooting death of a drunk driver who killed their two young sons. In December 2012, David and his 11- and 12-year-old sons were pushing the family's truck near their home, when they were struck by a drunk driver, and both boys were killed. Prosecutors alleged that after the crash, David, in a fit of rage, returned home, retrieved a gun, then shot and killed the 20-year-old driver.

For the first time, David, who did not take the stand during his trial, speaks out about the fateful night.
