Is the Wedding Off for the Suspected "Craigslist Killer"?

Is the honeymoon over before it even began? Despite calling her fiancee, Philip Markoff, the suspected "Craigslist Killer," a "beautiful person," it appears that Megan McAllister has at the very least postponed her planned wedding with him.

The Bstreetband, a Bruce Springsteen cover band, now lists Aug. 14th as open on their datebook.
Fri Aug 14th - due to circumstances beyond our control, this date is now available to book.
According to CBS News, the band had been scheduled to play at the Aug. 14th reception for Markoff and McAllister.
William Forte, the keyboardist and owner of the Bstreetband, said a relative of McAllister called him and said "that as of right now, there is no way they will be able to have the Aug. 14 wedding date."

Forte said he plans to return the couple's $500 deposit.

"Under the circumstances, I would never hold them to the contract," Forte said.
Of course, this could simply mean that it has become obvious that the wedding can't go on as scheduled, and that it's simply delayed. It could also mean that McAllister has finally taken a look at the stack of evidence against Markoff.

Philip Markoff , a 23-year-old medical student, is charged with murdering Julissa Brisman, a New York City resident, on April 14 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place hotel, after responding to her Craigslist "masseuse" ad. He is also charged in a robbery at a nearby hotel of another Craiglist-related masseuse.

He has pleaded not guilty.

He has also been linked to a similar attack in Rhode Island.

This could simply mean that it has become clear that a marriage can go ahead as planned and that is simply too late. It may also mean that McAllister has finally taken to examine the pile of evidence against Markoff.
