PRAGUE, Okla. – A true-crime show is scheduled to profile a gruesome Oklahoma murder and kidnapping case.

In 2010, 19-year-old Ethan Walton was murdered inside a shed on a property in Prague.

Glendon Gouker pleaded guilty to killing him and stuffing his body in a barrel. He also said he was guilty of kidnapping and raping Walton’s girlfriend.

She was able to later escape by jumping through a window to find help at a neighbor’s home.

In 2013, Gouker was sentenced to serve life in prison without parole plus 70 years.

According to the Shawnee News-Star, on Tuesday, Oct. 24, the case will be profiled at 9 p.m. on ‘Dead Silent,’ which airs on Investigation Discovery.
