Last month, the chilling trailer saw Candy on trial and answering questions about her relationship with Betty (played by Melanie Lynskey), the woman she admitted to killing.
The preview kicked off at a baby shower for Betty, who takes the time to say how ‘touched’ she is by Candy’s generosity, compassion and friendship.
“You’re just a sweetheart,” the late fifth-grade teacher tells her friend as the clip shows Biel’s character embarking on a months-long affair with her husband Allan Gore.

Creepy music starts playing in the background as Candy admits she feels ‘awful’ at one of her friends for sleeping with Betty’s husband.
“Candy, we were so close,” Betty tells Candy in one scene, before the friend-turned-enemy brushes her off saying she’s been “very busy” lately.
The footage then shows Candy telling Allan that she thinks Candy knows about their relationship and then goes to visit Betty.
The full story of Betty’s murder and Candy’s subsequent acquittal was presented in Texas Monthly as a two-part series in 1984. The reportage has served as a source for ‘Love and Death’.
Killer: Last month, the chilling trailer saw Candy on trial and answering questions about her relationship with Betty (played by Melanie Lynskey), the woman she admitted to killing.
The Victim: It started at a baby shower for Betty (Melanie Lynskey, pictured), who takes the time to say how ‘touched’ she is by Montgomery’s generosity, compassion and friendship.
Candy was eventually charged with murder and released on bail with the full support of her church.
She hired Don Crowder, an attorney she knew from the church, to represent her. They agreed that she would meet with Dr. Fred Fason, a psychiatrist and clinical hypnotist, to help her remember what happened the night of Betty’s murder for her trial.
Dr. Fason determined after a few hypnosis sessions that Candy suffered from a childhood trauma that had triggered her anger as an adult. She told the jury that Betty had confronted her about her affair with Allan and first attacked her with the axe, claiming that she had pointed the murder weapon at her former friend in her own defense.

Candy landed 41 blows to Betty’s body, 40 of which she delivered while her heart was still beating, but insisted she had no intention of killing her. After the jury heard closing arguments, Candy was found not guilty.
The Montgomerys stayed together after the trial and moved to Georgia, but later divorced. It was reported that Candy now goes by her maiden name Candace Wheeler and works as a mental health therapist for adolescents and adults.
The case inspired the CBS television movie ‘A Killing in a Small Town,’ which aired on May 22, 1990.
Shocking: “In this community, it’s been a huge shock,” he tells police. ‘We were friends’
Tragic: While the trailer doesn’t show what happens between the women, Betty ends up dead and the police start looking for the killer, whom they assume to be a ‘tramp’ or ‘strong man’.
Hulu picked up ‘Candy’ in December 2020, while it was revealed this week that Elizabeth Olsen will play HBO Max’s adaptation of the Candy case.
Elisabeth Moss was originally cast in the Hulu series, but had to drop out due to a scheduling conflict.
“We cannot imagine a more perfect artist to play the lead role of Candy than Elizabeth Olsen. Her talent, charisma and energy can cast a spell on audiences like no other,” said Sarah Aubrey, director of original content for HBO Max, in a statement.
