(WDHN) — Dr. Phil will be talking to Ozark man Carl Harris Jr. about his struggle to connect with his daughter after being accused of murdering her mother on WDHN Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Tracey Harris, the mother of Carolyn Aznavour, was murdered in March 1990. The young mother’s body was later found in the Choctawhatchee River in Alabama.

Her ex-husband, Carl Harris Jr., was arrested in 2016 and charged with murder. However, a piece of last-minute information led to the arrest of 54-year-old Jeff Beasley, a former family friend.

Shortly after the murder, Aznavour’s maternal grandmother was given custody of the young girl. Years later, after the charges were dropped, Harris stated that he wanted to establish a relationship with his daughter.

His interview with Dr. Phil will be going over his struggle after the murder of his wife as well as his struggle to connect with his daughter. In an exclusive clip, Harris and his lawyer discussed how his daughter was taken from him on the way back from the funeral.

For her part, Aznavour wrote on a Facebook page honoring her mother, “Carl can say I was taken from him all he wants, but being adopted by my grandmother was the absolute best thing for me! After all I stayed with her a majority of my toddler years anyway, so she was pretty much raising me already!”
