A&E shooting footage on 1997 murder in Clay County

MOORHEAD, Minn. – A production company is in Moorhead to shoot footage for a show that will focus on a local murder case in which a husband and wife were convicted of killing their baby sitter.

Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist said crews from the A&E cable TV channel will film at a number of spots in the area, including one scene that will attempt to recreate the murder of AnneMarie Camp, whose body was found in May 1997 at an abandoned farm near Sabin.

Michael Gianakos is serving a life sentence for the shotgun death of Camp, who worked as a baby sitter for Gianakos and his wife, Jamie Dennis-Gianakos.

Dennis-Gianakos pleaded guilty in state court to involvement in Camp’s death and is serving a 25-year sentence.

Gianakos has maintained he is innocent.
