In the Lifetime TV movie Newlywed and Dead, newlywed Kristen Ward starts to doubt her new husband Jay Morgan (Christopher Russell) when his aunt is found dead. Her murder leads Kristen to investigate the death. In a creepy Rebecca-kind-of-twist, Kristen discovers that she’s a dead ringer for Jay’s mother, who Jay (as a boy) killed by pushing her down the stairs, although he vehemently says it was an accident. Guest who’s next on his list.
