Half-Ton Killer Reality Special Coming to TLC

TLC announced a new special today called Half-Ton Killer, about Mayra Rosales, a woman who weighs 1,100 pounds and was accused of murdering her 2-year-old nephew. The show's just a one-off right now, but TLC loves turning its specials into series, so don't be surprised when this becomes a regular show in a few months. Just when you think you can't combine the modern-day freak-show voyeurism known as TLC's lineup with the Nancy Grace–fueled spotlight made of scorn, think again! Of course you can combine them.
