The new Netflix documentary, “What Jennifer Did,” follows the interrogation of Jennifer Pan, a young Canadian woman who allegedly planned to kill her parents.

Through police footage and interviews, the 86-minute documentary shows investigators piecing together what happened the November 2010 night Pan's mother, 53-year-old Bich Ha Pan, was killed and her father, 60-year-old Hei Hann Pan, was critically injured and put into a coma.

Using video from the interrogation, Pan's diary, friends' accounts and text messages, the film shows how Pan's parents allegedly forced her to excel academically and to stop dating her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Daniel Wong.

Prosecutors eventually accuse Pan, with the help of Wong, of coordinating a murder-for-hire plot to kill her parents.

At the 2014 trial, Pan, at the age of 28, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of her mother and of attempted murder of her father. She and Wong were sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years, per the documentary.

Pan’s co-conspirators — Lenford Crawford, David Mylvaganam and Eric Carty — were also found guilty on the same charges. Eric Carty was later convicted of conspiracy to commit murder but died in prison in 2018, according to the Markham Economist & Sun.
