CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - The CBS TV program "48 Hours Mystery" will focus Saturday on an unsolved murder case out of southeast Missouri.

Angela Mischelle Lawless was killed in 1992. She was shot three times in her vehicle that was found on an Interstate 55 ramp near Benton. Joshua Kezer, a teenager at the time of the murder, was convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison. He was exonerated and released in 2009 after Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter reopened the case.

The Southeast Missourian reports that the hour-long segment airs at 9 a.m. CST. Walter and the family of Lawless say they are hopeful that the airing will prompt someone with information to come forward.
