The shocking story, covered heavily on the Gambling911.com website, was recently featured on Oxygen April 2.

“In Ice Cold Blood” details how the poker player brutally murdered his parents and staged the scene to look like a robbery.  Investigators were not fooled.  The episode is entitled "High Stakes Homicide".  

From the New York Post

When surveillance footage from the country club showed a car that looked like Ernie's pulling in, then leaving four hours later, on what detectives believed was the night of the murder, suspicions deepened. In mid-April 2008, they told the rest of the family they believed Ernie was responsible for the murders.

With his 30th birthday coming up and no indication of what Ernie might be capable of, detectives advised both Robyn and his sister, Catherine, to go into hiding. Catherine could hardly believe it.

“He couldn't do this. This was gruesome and terrible,” she told producers. “He was not a violent person. Self-centered, selfish, egotistical, charismatic — all of those things, absolutely. But not violent … It made me mad.”

After months of recorded calls between Robyn and Ernie, in which he came across as less than innocent, detectives made their arrest on Feb. 23, 2009, in Las Vegas. Ernie was staunchly uncooperative and seemed more concerned with keeping in touch with a new girlfriend than the case against him. While he sat in jail pre-trial, the Alameda County District Attorney's office pored over the evidence to build something stronger out of a largely circumstantial case.
