Dorothea Puente obituary: Dorothea Puente, boarding house operator who killed tenants, dies at 82 - latimes.com

So long Dorthea. She had been in prison since the late ‘80’s. I’m pretty sure she was just as ready to die as her victims families were to see her go.

Dorthea took on boarders for their social security checks. Waited a decent time frame, poisoned them and buried them in the backyard and continued to get their checks each month.
