It's been 15 years since the murder of Sherita Williams. Now, her story is being told by a cable TV true crime series.

On The Case with Paula Zahn, seen on the Investigation Discovery channel, reopens William's untimely death in 2003.

The killing went unsolved until February, 2007, when DNA evidence linked Warren Dixon to an article of Sherita's clothing. The two had reportedly been classmates at Pennsauken High School, according to the Courier Post.

Dixon plead guilty to aggravated manslaughter and attempted aggravated sexual assault in 2009, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The episode of On The Case featuring the story of Sherita Williams is called 'A Bridge Too Far,' and will air on Investigation Discovery Sunday, September 2nd at 10PM.
