— The Mike Peterson murder case continues to grab headlines -- even though he's been in prison for months.

The BBC recently aired a documentary on the trial.

This week, producers are back in Durham shooting an additional segment.

They say the case has a cult-like following in the United Kingdom.

True-crime author Diane Fanning was also in town this week plugging her book about the Peterson murder.

Peterson is serving a life sentence for killing his wife, Kathleen.
