Wife goes on trial today in slaying of man found in floating suitcases

BY ANGELA DELLI SANTI THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Virginian-Pilot contributed to this report.

TRENTON, N.J. - Nearly three years after suitcases full of body parts were fished out of the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, a nurse is to go on trial this week on charges that she killed and dismembered her husband.

Melanie McGuire is charged with first-degree murder in the April 2004 killing of her husband, 39-year-old state computer analyst William T. McGuire. She pleaded not guilty and has remained free on $2.1 million bail.

Her trial was scheduled to open today at Middlesex County Courthouse in New Brunswick, and state Superior Court Judge Frederick DeVesa estimated the proceeding will last four to five weeks.

The judge has instructed lawyers in the case to restrict their comments outside the courtroom.

McGuire, 34, has maintained her innocence, and her lawyer, Stephen Turano, said the state's case is weak.

"What the state did, they very quickly came to a conclusion that it was Melanie McGuire," Turano said. "Anything that suggested she was not involved they ignored or minimized."

He said no decision has been made on whether McGuire will testify.

According to pretrial motions, prosecutors contend McGuire killed her husband in part so she could continue an affair with her boss at a Morristown fertility clinic.

The state will try to prove that McGuire drugged her husband with a sedative on April 29, 2004, shot him in the head and chest and dismembered his body in the bathroom of the Woodbridge, N.J., apartment they shared with their two preschool-age sons.

William McGuire's body was found in three suitcases in and around the Chesapeake Bay in 2004.

On May 5 of that year, a fisherman found the first suitcase near the fourth island of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. On May 11, a graduate student spotted the second suitcase on the shores of Fisherman Island, off the Eastern Shore. On May 16, a recreational boater found a suitcase floating off the second island of the bridge-tunnel.

The body was identified after an anonymous caller saw a police artist's sketch and contacted Virginia Beach Crime Solvers.

The state says bits of human tissue were found on Melanie McGuire's shoes, which "puts her with the body," said Assistant Attorney General Patricia Prezioso, who is prosecuting the case.
