OPRAH WINFREY SECURES EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH SOUTH CAROLINA MOTHER WHO CONFESSED TO MURDERING HER TWO YOUNG SONS

Episode Airs as Part of "Oprah's Next Chapter" Sunday, April 1 (9:00 P.M. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

Los Angeles, CA - Oprah Winfrey has secured an exclusive interview with Shaquan Duley, a mother who confessed to murdering her two young sons, as part of "Oprah's Next Chapter" Sunday, April 1 (9-10 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

In her first television interview, taking place one week before her sentence is announced, Shaquan Duley will sit face to face with Oprah Winfrey behind bars at the Orangeburg-Calhoun Detention Center in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Duley has been held without bond for nearly two years waiting to learn her fate.

During her interview with Duley, Winfrey will ask the mother why she killed her two innocent children, and will also talk to Duley's mother Helen and her sister Adrian, who originally told their story to Winfrey on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in September 2010 one month after Duley's arrest. Winfrey will also meet and talk to Saniya, Duley's 7-year-old daughter.

In a story that made national news headlines, Winfrey will revisit what happened in the early morning hours of August 16, 2010. According to her confession and police reports, 29-year-old Shaquan Duley shared a home with her mother Helen, and younger sister Adrian. After an argument, Duley stormed out of her house taking her two sons, 2-year-old Devean and 18-month-old Ja'van, but leaving her 5 year old daughter Saniya behind. Police say Duley checked into an Orangeburg motel where she smothered her sons to death by placing her hands over their mouth and nose.

Then, police say, Duley buckled her sons' bodies in their car seats and drove to a rural boat ramp 15 miles away, driving her car into the river where it began to sink. Once the car was submerged she exited the vehicle, leaving the bodies of her two sons inside. Duley then flagged down a passing motorist claiming she had an accident and her children were underwater. When police arrived, they say they were suspicious of Duley's story as there were no signs of a crash. Frantically, divers searched for the car and ultimately recovered the bodies of the two young boys. Investigators say Duley confessed to the murders and the cover up. On March 16, 2012, during a plea hearing, Duley pled guilty to two counts of murder and begged for forgiveness from her family, the community and the judge. Duley now faces 60 years to life in prison for the murders.
