The 2012 murder of University of New Hampshire student Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott will be featured on CBS's "48 Hours" this Saturday.

Seth Mazzaglia, 32, of Dover, New Hampshire, was convicted on June 27, 2014, and is serving a sentence of life without parole for the 2012 death of 19-year-old Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott of Westborough, Massachusetts. Prosecutors say Mazzaglia choked Marriott to death in his apartment after she rebuffed his sexual advances. 

"It's a story of this woman who was sort of lured into this house and then ultimately never went home and is still missing," said Richard Huff, a CBS News spokesman.

He said the episode, entitled "Dangerous Games," will include trial footage, interviews with Marriott's parents, the aunt and uncle she was living with at the time of the murder, a friend of Marriott's, and an ex-girlfriend of Mazzaglia's. Retired Foster's Daily Democrat Executive Editor Rod Doherty will also weigh in as someone who covered the case.

"48 Hours" airs at 10 p.m. Saturday.
