An actress who appeared in “Captain America: The First Avenger” stabbed her mother to death inside a Kansas home, police said.
Mollie Maxine Fitzgerald, who played “Stark Girl” in the 2011 Marvel Studios movie, was arrested Tuesday on a second-degree murder charge by police, where her mother, 68-year-old Patricia “Tee” Fitzgerald, was found dead.
“A 38-year-old white female, known to the victim, was contacted on the scene and transported to a local hospital with minor injuries,” police said. “This case remains under investigation by the Olathe Police Department.”
Additional details about the alleged killing were not provided.
Her brother Gary Hunziker said he was unable to provide additional details surrounding his sister’s death.
“We were shocked,” Hunziker said. “It doesn’t matter the circumstances – the loss of a sister is what it’s all about.”
