A producer who has worked on some of daytime TV’s most-popular shows was arrested on Monday on suspicion of murder after her deaf sister was reportedly found dead.
Jill Blackstone, who worked on TV shows like “Jerry Springer” and “Divorce Court,” was released on Wednesday after being booked on murder charges, a detective with the LAPD told FOX411.
“[There was] probable cause to book her for murder,” the detective said.
But Blackstone, 52, was released without posting her $1 million bail because the District Attorney’s office requested the case be investigated further.
“She was released because we asked for further investigation and we didn’t file and charges,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles DA’s Office told FOX411.
As of now, the District Attorney’s Office is waiting on the detectives to further look into the case.
The talk show producer’s sister, Wendy Blackstone, was found dead in the garage of the home the two sisters shared, according to TMZ. Wendy Blackstone, 49, reportedly died near a barbeque grill, after carbon monoxide filled the room. According to the LA Times, a dead animal was also found in the garage.
TMZ, citing law enforcement sources, reports Wendy Blackstone was found with a suicide note in hand, but police suspect Jill Blackstone wrote the note and killed her sister.
Sources told FOX411 Blackstone worked on "The Jerry Springer" show in the '90s.
Reps for “The Jerry Springer Show” did not return FOX411’s request for comment.
