IOWA CITY — A national television network plans to air a two-hour program about the mystery surrounding the 2001 death of a 20-year-old man in northwest Iowa.
The “Dateline NBC” episode looking into the disputed death of Dustin Wehde in Early airs at 8 p.m. Friday.
Prosecutors said Tracey Richter lured Wehde to her home and then killed him while her three children were present as part of a plot to frame her former husband.
They said she then made up a sensational story claiming she shot Wehde in self-defense after he and another man invaded her home.
Richter and a son who was present both insist there was a home invasion. A jury convicted her of first-degree murder last year. She is serving life in prison but has appealed. — AP
