CUERO - DeWitt County Deputy Sheriff Carl Bowen will be on the Katie Couric television show Wednesday.

Bowen will be part of the discussion of the new TNT television series "Cold Justice" that assisted in solving a DeWitt County cold case.

Bowen and the sheriff's office reopened the 2001 case in 2008.

After "Cold Justice" got involved, Ronnie Joe Hendrick was indicted in October 2012 and pleaded guilty to murder Sept. 10.

"The plea was a great relief," Bowen said by email while waiting to board a plane from New York after taping the show Tuesday.

"Katie" airs at 2 p.m. on NBC - KMOL in Victoria and KSAT in San Antonio.

The Advocate had exclusive coverage of the courtroom proceedings on the case featured on the show only six days before Hendrick's trial was scheduled to begin.
