A TV movie about the so-called Craigslist Killer is in the works at Lifetime, Variety reports.
Philip Markoff was given the name after he was accused of killing a woman he met through Craigslist in April 2009. He committed suicide Aug. 15 in a Boston jail cell while awaiting trial.
The movie, in development before Markoff's death, would focus on his apparent double life. Markoff was engaged and a Boston University medical student when he was arrested in the shooting of Julissa Brisman. He was also accused of robbing a Las Vegas woman and attacking a stripper.
Prosecutors allege Markoff met all three women by answering erotic service ads on Craigslist.
