The high-profile murder case of a Michigan State University senior is now taking center stage on the national front.

The death of 21 year old Andrew Singler at the hands of his girlfriend's brother will be profiled today on the Dr. Phil show.

Show to feature interviews with family of Connor McCowen

 

WLNS.com  is reporting that the case in Ingham County's Meridian Township will feature interviews with the parents and sister of convicted killer Connor McCowen.  The 19 year old was sentenced last November to 20 to 60 years behind bars.  He had claimed he stabbed Singler to death in the doorway of his apartment in self defense.  The jury didn't buy that argument, though, convicting him instead of second degree murder.

Prosecutors said McCowen went to the apartment angered by statements from Shay McCowen that Singler had abused her.

McCowen's family is set to tell what they believe led to the death.

The family has already come under fire for comments made at Connor's sentencing.  Singler's parents claim they were trying to blame the victim for his own death.

The episode airs today at 4 p.m. on WLNS TV 6.
