The episode of "Explorer" on the National Geographic channel featuring a segment on the double homicide of Douglas "Troy" and LaDonna French will re-air tonight at 10 p.m.

The couple were shot and killed in their house in the Bethany community of Rockingham County on Feb. 4, 2012. Only their then-19-year-old daughter Whitley French Alvarez survived.
