The case of Brent Burke, an Ursa native and a Fort Campbell, Ky., soldier who now is serving time for killing his estranged wife and her former mother-in-law, is getting national attention this weekend.

The double-murder case will be featured on "48 Hours" at 9 p.m. Saturday on KHQA-TV (Channel 7).

Tracy Burke and Karen Comer were found shot to death at Comer's home in Rineyville, Ky., in September 2007. Brent Burke was sentenced to life without parole after being court-martialed. Four civilian trials held earlier had all ended in mistrials.
