Craigslist suspect’s fiancee calls off wedding

May 1, 2009

(ChattahBox) — While doing their best not to make it sound like it will be perceived, the fiancee of Craigslist killer” Phillip Markoff, Megan McAllister is calling off the wedding and moving back to her home state of New Jersey to get on with her life.

McAllister initially maintained her fiance’s innocence in an e-mail sent to ABC News in early April, proclaiming police have the wrong man and Markoff “was set up.”

But as events evolved McAllister seems now ready to distance herself and only paid her first visit since Markoff was arraigned last week on murder charges to call off the wedding.McAllister’s lawyer Robert Honecker told CNN affiliate WCVB:

“It was an emotional conversation on both sides. There is still a love and commitment to that person, and I think that obviously realizing what has now happened, that she has to take steps to do what she has to do on her life,” Honecker told WCVB. She plans to move on, he said, though the lawyer still maintains the couple are still engaged.

Markoff, 23, a second-year student at Boston University’s School of Medicine, is charged with killing Julissa Brisman on April 14 at a Boston hotel. New reports say police found 16 pair of women’s underpants, allegedly souvenirs from his victims, and 60 pair of plastic restraints hidden under the bed Markoff shared with McCallister.

    Try telling Jillisa’s mom what a beautiful man he is on the inside and outside. She’s in denial, she knows he’s guilty because if she didn’t believe he was guilty she would have stuck by him. Especially since she’s so in love with him.
