If you thought the Corner Pantry’s sign Friday — “Brandon Scott Lavergne burn in hell” — was at the very least premature, wait until tonight. HLN host Nancy Grace, who has driven one suspect to suicide and routinely tries and convicts the accused on her crime-centered talk show, is sharpening her talons for Lavergne, the 33-year-old convicted sex offender charged with the kidnapping and murder of 22-year-old Lafayette college student Mickey Shunick.

On her website, Grace is promoting tonight’s show with uppercase urgency: “DID REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER KILL 21-YEAR-OLD CO-ED BEAUTY? : Police say a 33-year-old registered sex offender kidnapped & murdered missing college co-ed last seen riding her bike home from her friend’s house. But where is Mickey Shunick’s body?”

Lavergne’s “trial” airs at 7 p.m.
