‘Suitcase Killer: The Melanie McGuire Story’ Preview

Based on a shocking true story, “Suitcase Killer” stars Candice King as Melanie McGuire, a fertility nurse, married to her husband Bill (Michael Roark), a ex-Naval officer and the mother of two young boys, according to the Lifetime press release.

It continues:

When Melanie falls for Brad (Jackson Hurst), a doctor at her clinic, and gets entangled in a steamy love affair, Melanie does the unthinkable. After drugging and murdering Bill, she dismembers him and places the body parts into three suitcases, throwing them into Chesapeake Bay. But when the suitcases are found on the shores of Virginia Beach, an investigation is launched leading to Melanie as the prime suspect. Led by the efforts of assistant attorney general Patti Prezioso (Wendie Malick), authorities eventually bring Melanie to justice, who despite being convicted, continues to maintain her innocence.

In an interview, King told KGET that she loved the opportunity to act in a true crime piece because she loves that genre of media. She also said she felt a responsibility to tell Melanie’s story respectfully because there are two sides and the evidence against her is largely circumstantial.

“For me, personally, I really just felt that it was my responsibility to tell Melanie’s story, as those were the shoes that I was filling, and this was someone who, by her own account, she is a mother who was scared and as in an abusive relationship, and who was also very dedicated to her job and who was not perfect,” said King. “She had many, many faults, self-admittedly. So that’s more kind of the direction in which – or at least that’s what I was showing up to set with also while following the script that we have.”

She added, “There’s a lot of circumstantial evidence against Melanie. What I think is so fascinating about this case is that the actual physical evidence specifically to the condo in which her and Bill lived in they couldn’t find anything within that condo. Regardless of what you believe on either side of the case, you have to take that into consideration. They took piping from the sinks to test it and found nothing. So regardless of which side you stand on, the evidence alone it’s just really interesting based off of what the prosecution came to the courts with.”

“Suitcase Killer: The Melanie McGuire Story” premieres Saturday, June 18 at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on Lifetime.
