Tammy Cole

Tammy Cole is led out of a Monroe County courtroom in May 2011 after being sentenced for the murder of Vance Evans. Cole will be eligible for supervised release in 30 years.

A documentary profiling the Tammy Cole murder case premieres Sunday on the Oxygen network.

The show, called “Snapped,” airs at 8 p.m. It includes interviews with prosecutors and Cole’s family.

Cole, now 49, is serving a life sentence for fatally shooting Vance Evans in April 2010, though she is eligible for release in 30 years. A judge also imposed a consecutive seven-year sentence for arson.

A Monroe County jury in March 2011 found Cole, of Illinois, executed her ex-boyfriend April 26, 2010, when he rejected her. She later kicked out a gas line to try to ignite his Tomah house to conceal evidence.

She testified the gun discharged by accident when they hugged.

Cole’s attorney argues she deserves a new trial because her trial attorneys were ineffective. The judge has not issued a ruling.
