WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - In June, the NC Court of Appeals unanimously upheld the conviction of a man serving a life sentence for killing an FBI secretary in New Hanover County more than a decade ago.

Tyrone Delgado was sentenced to life without parole in 2008 and is housed in Central Prison in Raleigh.

He killed FBI Secretary Melissa Money inside her home in Castle Hayne in 1999.  Delgado was convicted of first degree murder and first degree burglary.  His trial was the longest jury trial in the history of the state courthouse for Wilmington.

Dateline NBC will air an hour-long episode featuring the Delgado investigation and trial Monday night at 10:00.

District Attorney Ben David and Assistant District Attorney Jon David, who were both prosecutors in this case in 2008, will give their perspective into the trial.

Other New Hanover County agents from the FBI and members of the law enforcement community will also be featured.
