A Killing in a Small Town is a 1990 CBS television movie directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal and starring Barbara Hershey and Brian Dennehy. Co-star Barbara Hershey won a 1990 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress - Miniseries or a Movie.
A small town is shocked by the brutal ax murder of a woman. However, they are even more shocked when a reserved neighboring woman, Candy Morrison (Hershey), who is a wife and mother, becomes the chief suspect. During the investigation, she is placed under hypnosis which reveals a different personality completely. The film is based on the story of Wylie, Texas, housewife Candy Montgomery's murder of Betty Gore in 1980, and sometimes is titled Evidence of Love, after a 1984 book on the murder case.
Portions of the movie, including interior and exterior scenes of Candy Morrison's home, were actually filmed in Plano, Texas (another northern suburb of Dallas).
