Reality TV Star Charged with Murder

VH1's Megan Wants a Millionaire and I Love Money competitor Ryan Alexander Jenkins is going to be charged with the murder of his wife, Jasmine Fiore -- if cops can find him.

He is believed to have escaped to Canada, after being named a "person of interest" in the strangulation of his wife. Her nude body was found stuffed into a suitcase in a Buena Park, Ca. trash bin over the weekend.

Violence seems to be a pattern for the guy dubbed "Smooth Operator" on the VH1 series. In June, he as charged with a misdemeanor count of "battery constituting domestic violence" for hitting his wife in the arm, and according to the Associated Press, Ryan was sentenced to 15 months of probation in January 2007 for assault in Canada.

Someone needs to talk to the people at VH1 about doing better background checks on their contestants.
