Jill Blackstone, a former television producer whose credits include “The Jerry Springer Show,” “Family Court With Judge Penny” and “Divorce Court,” has been charged in connection with her sister Wendy’s death, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said Monday.
Blackstone is charged with one felony count of murder and three felony counts of cruelty to an animal stemming from the incident. According to the DA’s office, Jill Blackstone allegedly killed her sister Wendy Blackstone, 49, in a garage “on or about March 13 and March 14, 2015.”
