LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - KPLC 7News has received an Emmy nomination for the two-part special, “Vail of Silence.”

In Vail of Silence, KPLC’s Rhonda Kitchens traveled to Angola State Prison and interviewed convicted murderer Felix Vail. She also met with Mary Horton’s family and friends in Mississippi as they reminisced about Mary’s life, and to hear their feelings on Vail’s conviction. Vail was found guilty in 2016 of murdering his wife, Mary Horton Vail, more than 50 years after she was found dead in the Calcasieu River.

Vail is also believed to be the last person to have seen two other women alive - wife Annette Craver Vail and girlfriend Sharon Hensley.

“Vail of Silence” is nominated in the category of News Special, and is up against nine other entries. The shows were produced by Rhonda Kitchens and Timothy Bourgeois. Jack Woodson and Caleb LaFleur were the videographers on the project.
