Alpena murder featured in docuseries | News, Sports, Jobs

On Monday night, it will be.

A 2001 Alpena crime will be featured on an episode of the Oxygen Network series “Killer Couples.” The episode, scheduled to air at 9 p.m. local time, depicts the October 2001 slaying of James Orban in a north Alpena home, which was destroyed by fire a few days later, an effort to hide evidence.

Melissa Bredow-Belanger, 21 at the time, worked for Orban, 69, a man she called her best friend — a man, Thomson said, who was giving her money for cleaning the house … and a lot of other things.
