An interstate fight that ended in the death of an 11-year-old child will be the focus of a TruTV series.

TruTV will air the trial and sentencing of Ethan Chic-Colbert on the show "In Session." The show will air 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Nov. 15-16 and Nov. 19-21.

Chic-Colbert was sentenced in Kanawha County Circuit Court in August to three to 15 years in the death of 11-year-old Jahlil Clements, and one to five years for each count of endangerment, and time served for battery.

Chic-Colbert pleaded guilty in July to charges of domestic battery, child neglect by a parent, guardian or custodian resulting in the death of a child and gross child neglect creating the risk of serious bodily injury or death. Charges of kidnapping and murder were dismissed.

Chic-Colbert and girlfriend Lynitrah Woodson got into a fight, according to police. After pulling over to continue the fight, Clements went to get help, getting hit by a passing car according to police.
