The case of a Woodbridge attorney poisoned by his wife and an accomplice is being featured on an episode of “Deadly Women” on Friday. The program airs on the Investigation Discovery Channel and deals with the murder case of Woodbridge attorney Larry McNabney.

McNabney was poisoned by Sarah Dutra and Lauren Sims, McNabney's wife, on Sept. 11, 2001. His body was found in a vineyard near Linden in February 2002.

Sims was arrested in connection with the murder but hung herself in her jail cell prior to trial. Her suicide note implicated Dutra, who served most of her 11-year sentence. She was released from the Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla in August.

Layla Bohm, a former public safety reporter for the Lodi News-Sentinel, appears on the program.

The program will air at 10 p.m. Friday. For more information, visit investigation.discovery.com/tv/deadly-women.

Contact reporter Jordan Guinn at jordang@lodinews.com.

    The prosecutor, Deputy District Attorney Thomas Testa, will likely have a larger role on the show (the film crew told me he was great). Also interviewed was former Sheriff's Detective Robert Buchwalter. Had the reporter attempted to contact me before writing this, I could have provided the information in about 60 seconds.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
