Markoff Fiancee Visits Jailhouse, Attorney Says Wedding "Dismantled"

The attorney for Megan McCallister, the fiancee of accused Craigslist killer Phillip Markoff, said Thursday the couple’s pending summer wedding is being “dismantled,” just a day after the couple was reunited via jailhouse visit.

Robert Honecker told Good Morning America that the wedding “will not occur” anytime in the near future.

McCallister was accompanied on the visit by her mother and Honecker.

“It was an emotional conversation and she came away from that conversation, I believe, a stronger person because she made that step,” Honecker said of McCallister. “At this point, obviously, she still supports her fiancee.”

Markoff has pleaded not guilty to charges he fatally shot masseur Julissa Brisman on April 14 at a Boston hotel, and the robbery of a Las Vegas prostitute four days before; he made acquaintances with both women over the popular want ad Web site Craigslist, and both attacks allegedly occurred in Boston’s Copley Square area.
