Craigslist Killer's Fiancée: 'He is Innocent Until Proven Guilty'
Despite reports that Megan McAllister and the suspected "Craigslist Killer" Philip Markoff have canceled their wedding, Megan has announced that she will support him through his legal process.
"To me and my family, he is a loving and caring person and in the eyes of the law and the Constitution, he is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," McAllister said in a statement released to People magazine. "I just can only hope that the criminal justice system will not be overwhelmed and persuaded by what is being put forth in the media."
She continues, "In the past two short weeks, my life and what I hoped my life to be has dramatically changed. I also love my fiancé and I will continue to support him throughout this legal process. What has been portrayed and leaked to the media is not the Philip Markoff that I know."
The couple was planning a wedding for August, but a member of the Bstreetband, who was scheduled to play at their nuptials, told the press that the ceremony was canceled. When asked how Megan was doing, her father, Jim, told reporters: "Megan is not doing so well, it's a very tense situation."
Megan added that she intends to cooperate with Markoff's attorney and the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office. Markoff, 23, has been charged with the murder of one woman and the assault of another.
