Fugate Murder To Be Featured on I.D. Channel Crime Drama Series
The tragic murder of Hannibal resident Sandra Fugate will be featured on an upcoming episode of Investigation Discovery's crime drama series 'Happily Never After.' The episode -- "Shattered Sisterhood" -- airs Saturday, August 10, at 8 p.m. It will be re-aired several times on Sunday, August 11.
Fugate was murdered by her fiance, Calvin Duane Pettey, on April 15, 2010, in her home at 3611 Iowa Ave. Pettey was convicted of first degree murder in June, 2012, and was later sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Rebecca Jeanne Kirk, of Frankford, who was having an affair with Pettey at the time of Fugate's murder, has been charged with two felony counts of tampering with evidence in the case. Kirk's trial date has yet to be determined.
Fugate was murdered just two days before she was to be married to Pettey. 'Happily Never After' is narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Marlo Thomas. Investigation Discovery is available locally on the following channels:
