Woman arrested in death of deaf sister in California

Jerry Springer’ producer arrested for murdering sister

Television producer Jill Blackstone has been arrested in Baltimore on a murder warrant related to the Studio City death of her deaf and partly blind sister, Los Angeles police officials said Thursday.

Blackstone had been a person of interest in Wendy Blackstone's death since March 2015, when she was found in a California garage, dead of carbon monoxide poisoning.

This booking mug shows Jill Blackstone, a TV producer who was arrested on Thursday, April 12, 2018, on suspicion of killing her sister at their Studio City home in 2015.

In statement Thursday, the LAPD said Jill drugged her sister and placed her in the garage of their home, along with three pet dogs, and staged the scene as an accident. "Los Angeles Police Department's Operations-Valley Bureau Homicide Detectives along with Baltimore Police Department have arrested Jill Blackstone for murder", the LAPD revealed in a news release.

Jill Blackstone was arrested on suspicion of murder two days after her sister's body was found, but she was released when prosecutors declined to file charges, asking police to conduct further investigation. It wasn't immediately clear if she has an attorney. She was listed as an executive producer on 105 episodes of Family Court with Judge Penny, and was also listed as an executive producer on shows including Pat Croce Moving In, The Tony Danza Show, Divorce Court, and Jerry Springer.

She is expected to be transferred to Los Angeles to face charges.

At first it appeared that Wendy - who was deaf and partially blind - had killed herself, but now police believe that Jill assisted her sister, according to TMZ. It is also believed that there may have been a suicide pact that Jill had backed out of, leaving the enclosed garage before she, too, succumbed to the carbon monoxide being emitted from the grill. We were told they were investigating a double suicide, an attempt, and one of the people died.

Police are trying to extradite Blackstone to Los Angeles from Baltimore.
