ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - Oprah Winfrey's production company has confirmed that her interview with an Orangeburg County woman who pleaded guilty to killing her two young boys will air April 1st.

Winfrey visited the Orangeburg-Calhoun Regional Detention Center Friday to speak with Shaquan Duley.

Duley admitted in court last week that she killed her two young boys and drove them into the Edisto River last August.

According to the Orangeburg Times and Democrat, Winfrey arrived at the Orangeburg Municipal Airport Friday afternoon and was driven straight to the jail where Shaquan Duley is awaiting sentencing. It was Duley's first interview with the media.

Duley pleaded guilty last week to two charges of murder in the deaths of her sons, 2-year-old Devean and 18-month-old Ja'van. She admitted suffocating the boys and staging a car crash at a river outside of town.
The 30-year-old mother has been incarcerated since shortly after the 2010 incident. Duley will be sentenced on March 30. She faces between 30 years and life in prison.

Shaquan Duley's attorney and some family members spoke with Winfrey in September 2010.  For the most recent segment, Winfrey interviewed Duley's 7-year-old daughter.

Oprah's Harpo production company says the OWN Network shot an episode Friday for "Oprah's Next Chapter," featuring Shaquan Duley. The episode will air at 9 p.m. April 1.
