Ice Cold Killers TV show revisits the Kira Steger murder case

Kira Steger disappeared after leaving her job at the Mall of America in February of 2013.

The case of Kira Steger, a Wisconsin native whose body was found in the Mississippi River months after she disappeared, will be chronicled on the show Ice Cold Killers Thursday night.

The episode premieres at 8 p.m. CST on Investigation Discovery. Here's the summary, from the channel's schedule page.

"A frigid winter hovers over St Paul, Minnesota. 30 year old Kira Steger hasn't reported to work and her family and friends are terrified she might be in danger. Her disappearance leads to a three month investigation that halts to a heartbreaking ending."

The Pioneer Press has more details about the episode, including quotes from Steger's mother, and has a preview of the episode on its YouTube page.

Steger was last seen alive on Feb. 21, 2013, leaving her job at Mall of America. Her disappearance prompted massive searches. In May that year, authorities recovered her body from the Mississippi River in St. Paul.

Her husband, Jeffery Trevino, was charged with murder before her body was found. He was convicted of second-degree murder in October 2013, and sentenced to more than 27 years in prison. He appealed his conviction, but it was denied in 2015. He's currently at a prison in Rush City, and is expected to be released in June of 2031, according to online corrections records.

Ice Cold Killers (which appears to focus on homicides in cold climates) puts episodes online after they air, though you need a cable log-in to watch. They're also available to rent on YouTube. Here's the channel finder.

Last week's episode was actually also about a Minnesota case: A woman's body was found burned to death in a car, with an empty child's car seat in the back.
