A crew from Jupiter Productions visited Waco to tape a segment of the television show “Snapped” about the Yalanda Lind capital murder case.

Lind, 39, of Waco was sentenced to life in prison without parole in June after she was convicted in a plot with her ex-boyfriend to kill her mother, Rebecca Leonard. Leonard’s boyfriend, Jerry Patterson, also was stabbed during the incident.

The crew interviewed Tribune-Herald courts reporter Tommy Witherspoon about the case and his coverage of the trial for the show. It is not known at this time when the Lind segment will air on the Oxygen Network.

Witherspoon also appeared in a previous episode of “Snapped” about Darlene Gentry, a Robinson nurse who was convicted in the November 2005 shooting death of her husband, Keith Gentry, the father of her three sons. Darlene Gentry is serving a 60-year prison term.
