Captain America actress charged with murder
Captain America: The First Avenger star Mollie Fitzgerald was charged with second-degree murder in the death of her mother on December 20.
The 38-year-old actress and movie director was arrested on Tuesday after the police found her mother, Patricia Fitzgerald, dead inside her home in Olathe, Kansas. The 68-year-old suffered from a stab wound.
Fitzgerald had a minor cameo as Stark Girl in the first Captain America movie and was also the assistant to the director, Joe Johnston, on set.
The actress, who has mostly featured in low-budget movies, including 2014’s The Lawful Truth and 2017’s The Creeps, was charged and jailed on a $US500,000 bond on Tuesday.
The victim’s brother Gary Hunziker spoke to The Kansas City Star on Tuesday saying that the family knew very few details surrounding his sister’s death.
“We were shocked,” he said, adding that “it doesn’t matter the circumstances – the loss of a sister is what it’s all about.”
