On Saturday, November 21, the CBS news program 48 Hours will broadcast a program dubbed "The Strange Case of Kurt Sonnenfeld" — and that's certainly an accurate title.

Sonnenfeld was accused, then un-accused, and subsequently accused again of murdering his wife, Nancy, in Denver during the first minutes of 2002.

By the time Colorado prosecutors decided to re-file charges that had previously been dropped, however, Sonnenfeld had relocated to Argentina, where he claimed the murder charges were a phonied-up pretext to punish him for his claims — which he said were supported by footage he shot as a FEMA videographer — that the U.S. government had known in advance about the 9/11 attacks.

As reported by the Denver Post's Kirk Mitchell, who wrote a 2013 book about Sonnenfeld called The Spin Doctor: Hero or Cold-Blooded Killer?, Argentina's president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, has issued an executive order overriding the Supreme Court decision.

Does this development mean Sonnenfeld will never be returned to Colorado for prosecution? That's not clear quite yet. But expect this Saturday's 48 Hours broadcast to stir up supporters and detractors alike.

Look below to see a preview of the program, followed by a mini-documentary about Sonnenfeld that he posted on Facebook.
