Readers of this paper are likely to recall the Doug Grant murder case.

 

emember, the onetime Phoenix Suns nutritionist who was convicted of manslaughter in the 2001 drowning death of his beautiful wife Faylene. (That's the happy couple on the day of their second wedding, mere weeks before her tragic death at their Gilbert home.)

Folks still want to talk to us about it.
 
 

ABC's 20/20 and NBC's Dateline already have aired shows on the Grant case. Now, seven months after the guilty verdict (Doug Grant is serving a five-year prison sentence), it's CBS' 48 Hours' turn. 

The hour-long piece, which the program's calling "Deadly Prophecy," is scheduled to air in the Valley this Saturday at 8 p.m., on Channel 5.
