OCALA - Cable TV talking head Nancy Grace denies that she subjected the mother of a missing Leesburg child to mental abuse during a testy taped interview that preceded the young mother's suicide.

In a routine motion filed last week in a wrongful-death civil suit in federal court in Ocala, lawyers for Melinda Duckett's estate attached Grace's responses to their interrogatories, a set of written queries that Grace and her lawyers were required to answer...
"Ms. Duckett was amiable when on the telephone immediately prior to her appearance, then abruptly left the call during her appearance."
...Grace describes her cable program in the interrogatories as "television's only (?) justice-themed/interview/debate show, designed for those interested in the breaking crime news of the day.
Trenton Duckett was 2-years-old when his mother, Melinda, reported him missing Aug. 27, 2006, from the bedroom of their apartment in Leesburg. She then shot and killed herself at her grandparents' home in The Villages on Sept. 8, 2006, the day the interview with Grace was broadcast.
The case is scheduled for trial in July.
