Summary

Theresa Petto's relationship with friend-with-benefits Brent Kik ends when she becomes despondent and emotionally needy after the death of their infant daughter. Brent finds a new girlfriend, Rachel Drafta, but Theresa refuses to move on and begins stalking the couple. In June 2015, Theresa abducts Rachel and shoots her to death. She is serving life without parole. Former Hollywood showgirl Clara Phillips gave up her career to marry her husband, Armour, but he is often away on business, making Clara jealous and insecure. She soon accuses him of sleeping with an attractive young widow named Alberta Meadows, despite lack of evidence of any affair. In 1922, she entraps Alberta and then bludgeons her with a hammer and crushes her chest with a large rock. Dubbed "The Tiger Woman" by the press due to the brutality of her crime, she serves 12 years and is released at age 36.

In May 2016, Yvonne, disguised as a man, breaks into Nikki's home and stabs, bludgeons, and strangles her half-sister to death. She gets 20 years to life.
