RALEIGH, N.C. — A cable TV mini-series on the Mike Peterson murder trial starts on Monday.

A French production crew followed Mike Peterson for five months, documenting jury selection and the trial. They were in Texas when the body of Elizabeth Ratliff, Peterson's friend, was exhumed.

A jury convicted Peterson in October 2003 for killing his wife, Kathleen.

The eight-part mini-series will air on the Sundance Channel.
