COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – A film crew is turning the 2003 killing of a Columbia man into an episode for a true-crime cable TV series.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that the crew began work this week on an episode about the 2003 killing of James Pruitt for the show “Snapped” on the Oxygen Network.
The show will focus on his ex-girlfriend, Lucille Duncan, who is serving a life sentence for first-degree murder. Prosecutors said she conspired with her brother, Gerald, who was convicted of second-degree murder. He’s accused of shooting and killing Pruitt in her car in Boone County as they drove back from the Missouri River.
Lucille Duncan’s teenage son, Jeremiah Robertson, was in the car when Pruitt was killed, and he served as the prosecution’s main witness at her trial.
