she did not do it

She didn't do it. There is no way that she dismembered her husband and disposed of him on her own. If ever there should have been forensics to convict someone this was the case.

I can't express how shocked I was by this story. I went to HS with Bill McGuire..knew him well. When I first saw the story I thought she was guilty as sin, but then I started doing a bit of homework. Read about his gambling issues, the fact that searches for poisons were done at the same time as online gambling searches, etc. I have serious doubts about her guilt.

So, this is the first time you have known a murderer or went to school with one? So what? She did it! She 100% without a reasonable doubt, did it. The jurors tried to see it differently, but after over 13 hours or more of deliberations, they say she did it and I say she did it. Did you watch the trial? Did you read the Timeline before and after the disappearance of Bill and subsequent murder of Bill? Sorry, but she is NOT getting out. She will be going on 70 by the time she can try for parole. Get over it! It sounds like she has, to some degree anyhow. Life goes on .....without Melanie McGuire in our free society!

I will tell you this...she is really oone sick puppy. Atleast O.J. in claiming his innocence kept pleading for the police to find the real killer. There is not one instance where she showed any fear that a killer was stalking free in the netherland woods of Jersey. If I was set-up like she claims she was, I would have requested round the clock protection, afterall she had two kids. Any one who thinks that she did this alone is also on the long tube. The last words she said to her step-dad after the verdict was 'don't worry' I saw her mouth it over Court TV in front of millions of gawkers. I called the network and asked them why they overlooked it. By the way,I contacted a reporter named Rick M from a Jersey rag last week and he said that the case is not closed. Note that the members of the jury have refrained from discussing the case for more than two years. Her atty also is secretly on the hot seat for pretending that she passed the lie detector test while the jury was in deliberations and leaked it to the press. I understand that she hated by her fellow prisoners and is kept in her cell all day long for safety reasons.

I doubt any of you morons who are sitting here saying she didn't do it even watched the trial. I watched it front to back and read anything I could about the case. She SOOOOOO did it. I mean for crying out loud, she totally outs herself in the phone conversations with her doctor boyfriend.

Watched the entire trial. The state did not prove thier case. No way she did it, and if she did, she had some very good help. He had a lot of issues, she was no angel, but the state convicted her on a completely circumstantial case, without looking anywhere else.

She did it alright, no doubt about it. And yes, she did have an accomplice. Did you read to whom the prosecutor pointed when she mentioned the likelihood of an accomplice? She pointed directly to McGuire's step-father, Michael Cappararo.

McGuire was 34 years old when she was convicted, on 4 counts (murder, dismemberment, perjury, and illegal gun possession), in 2007. She is serving a life sentence WITHOUT PAROLE for the murder. In NJ, that means she must serve a full 67 years. She will be 101 years old the next time she gets a taste of freedom- if she lives that long.

She deserves each and every miserable moment she will spend in prison.

Who do you believe was Melanie's accomplice? If she did it I believe it was her stepfather, but how come ZERO evidence was found in the master bathroom after several searches .... it may have not taken place in the master bathroom.

Melanie did not do this crime. She wanted out of her marriage, yes, however, she isn't the one who killed her husband. I believe it was his own undoing. Where is the evidence in that Woodridge house...there would have to be some evidence!

While She Was At Work Or Out Of The House, Bill had Her Gun + Whoeva He Was With In There House Plan'd On Kill'n Him. Grab'd The Trash bags+ Suit Cases To Get Rid Of Him ! She Was Never Placed At The Scene Of Any Crime! It Was He Said She Said! Sorry Melanie! If I Was On That Jury You'd Be Free (not Guilty)

I was incarcerated with Melanie Mcguire. She just is not a normal person. When you look in her eyes you get a blank stare in return. She did it!!!
