Local homicide to be featured on Discovery's 'Evil Kin'

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 28, 2014

Investigation Discovery, airing on the Discovery Channel, is taking a look at a local homicide on an upcoming episode.

The show will be digging into the death of Christine Smith on its series "Evil Kin."

As a child, Brookey Lee West's mother, Christine Smith, was sent to jail for attempted murder, and Brookey could never quite shake her mother's hold. Years later, they both moved to Las Vegas.

West was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 2001 for killing Smith in 1998.

The episode will include interviews from the Deputy Public Defender, crime scene analysts, television and newspaper reporters and more.

The show is set to air on Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. ET.
