A television program about the 1997 killing of Rock Hills Earl and Terry Robertson by their son, James Robertson, is scheduled to for Friday at 9 p.m. on the Investigation Discovery cable network.
Robertson was convicted in 1999 and sentenced to death for killing his parents at their Rock Hill home with a hammer, knife and baseball bat in an attempt to get at about $2 million in his parents money. Robertson fled the scene of the crime after the November killing, then drove to see his brother in Philadelphia, where he was caught by police who were waiting for him after tracking the use of his fathers credit card.
James Robertson, a former Boy Scout and honor student, has been on death row ever since, but is appealing his conviction.
Several people involved in the case were interviewed for the show, including former prosecutor Tommy Pope, current prosecutor Kevin Brackett and York County Sheriffs Office lead detective Lt. Tim Hager.
The networks Web site states the show will re-air again Saturday, Sunday and Monday at different times.
