Jill Blackstone — who worked as a producer on several talk shows, most notably, Jerry Springer — has been accused of murdering her sister Wendy, who happens to be deaf, on March 14. She has since been arrested in connection to Wendy's death.
‘TMZ’ reports that the 49-year-old sister, along with her three dogs, were found dead in the garage of Jill's San Fernando Valley home.
The producer allegedly claimed the cause of death was suicide, but authorities felt the note that was left looked suspicious.

It has since been suggested that Wendy died of carbon monoxide from a barbecue, while ‘TMZ’ also claims police believe the death scene was “staged” by Jill.
Authorities have purportedly determined that the talk show vet wrote the suicide note in question, adding that they were apprehensive after seeing the grill was placed at the victim’s feet.
Jill's arrest came Monday once she was discharged from hospital, where she was treated for severe carbon monoxide poisoning.
She has since been released on $1 million bail.
