A Pennsylvania woman charged in the November slaying of a man she and her husband met through Craigslist has told a newspaper that she killed many more victims. 19-year-old Miranda and 22-year-old Elytte Barbour are accused of luring 42-year-old Troy Laferrara through an ad on Craigslist then stabbing him to death, just so they could kill someone together. From prison Friday, Miranda Barbour told a reporter that she participated in at least 22 killings in the past six years in Alaska, Texas, North Carolina and California, saying she stopped counting after 22 murders. She claimed her first experience with killing was at age 13, shortly after she said she joined a satanic cult in Alaska. So far none of her claims has been verified.
