Show on convicted Tri-Citian airs tonight

The story of acclaimed missing Anacortes dog trainer Mark Stover and the Kennewick man convicted of his murder will be broadcast on CBS tonight featuring a first-time interview with Stover's estranged ex-wife.

The show 48 Hours Mystery will delve into the characters and story behind the Michiel Oakes murder trial, which took place in October in Mount Vernon.

The show Dateline already aired its coverage of the case two weeks ago during a two-hour segment.

48 Hours also will take up two hours with its segment"The Dog Trainer, the Heiress and the Bodyguard," but will be split between today's show at 10 p.m. and Feb. 12 at 10 p.m.

Oakes, 42, of Kennewick, was convicted Oct. 22 of first-degree premeditated murder after a three-week trial and a week of jury deliberation in Mount Vernon.

Stover disappeared Oct. 28, 2009, and his body never was recovered.

Oakes is the boyfriend and former bodyguard of Stover's ex-wife, Linda Opdycke.
