'Satanist' wife tells of killing 22

Monday, February 17, 2014

A woman charged with the murder of a man lured to a Pennsylvania rendezvous through the website Craigslist has admitted to the killing in an interview from jail, a newspaper reported.

Miranda Barbour, 19, also said she had killed at least 22 people in different parts of the country.

The Daily Item in Sunbury said she was involved with a Satanic cult.

"When I hit 22, I stopped counting," she said. Now she just wanted to be honest.

She and her husband, Elytte Barbour, 22, in separate appearances at a state court in Sunbury in December pleaded not guilty to the November 11 killing of 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara, whose body was found dumped in an alley in Sunbury.

Prosecutors say the husband hid under a blanket in the back of their car when his wife picked up LaFerrara at a mall.

On her signal, Elytte Barbour strangled LaFerrara with a cord while his wife stabbed him about 20 times, police say.

"He said the wrong things and then things got out of control," she said. "He was not supposed to be stabbed. My husband was just supposed to strangle him."
