The show, The Killer Speaks on A&E will feature the murder of Joseph Glen Pruitt.

His killer, Lawrence Tarbert, will also be interviewed and reveal for the first time details about the murder.

Tarbert and his wife befriended Pruitt, who was homeless, and told him he could live with them as long as he didn’t drink or do drugs. But when Tarbert found out Pruitt had been drinking he, “took matters into his own hands.”

Pruitt was found shot to death along a hiking trail in the Lincoln National Forest.

Talbert pleaded guilty and is serving life in prison.
