BATON ROUGE- A senate committee approved a bill dealing with what's commonly known as "Murderabilia."

Senator Yyvonne Dorsey-Colomb filed the bill. 

Her family has close ties to a victim of serial killer Derrick Todd Lee.  Two sketches by Lee recently showed up for sale online. 

Dorsey-Colomb's bill would split any profits a death row inmate makes among his or her victims. 

The bill will now be considered by the full senate.
