The brutal killing of aspiring Hollywood actress Juliana Redding will be the focus of Saturday night's episode of "48 Hours." And the CBS News production will get a special assist from L.A. Times reporter Jack Leonard.

Leonard reported on the 2008 slaying and the subsequent trial of Kelly Soo Park in the Times.

Park was accused of murdering Redding on behalf of Redding's ex-boyfriend, a wealthy Marina Del Rey surgeon who is believed to have fled the country when Park was arrested in 2010. Park was acquitted by a jury in June.

Leonard will help lead viewers through the investigation and trial of what he calls a "whodunit."
