NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Melanie McGuire, a New Jersey woman accused of hacking her
husband into pieces and dumping his remains in suitcases, was indicted
Monday on new charges of writing anonymous letters to throw detectives
off her trail.
McGuire, a reproductive health care nurse, forged a prescription for a powerful sedative, which she then used to sedate her husband before shooting him and dismembering the body inside their Woodbridge apartment, prosecutors said.
Melanie's to-do list?
- Search Internet on poisoning, state gun laws and how to commit murder
- Ask boss at fertility clinic -- I love him so! -- if he remembered to buy that hacksaw
- Find three suitcases, insert husband, dump in river
- Write letters to authorities saying sister probably did it
