These 14 Women Have Been Killed by the Country.

In the last century, only 40 women have received the death penalty in America — 14 since 1976, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. In total, 1,343 prisoners have faced execution since then.

Business Insider looked into the stories of the 14 women on death row since the mid-'70s, many of whom killed their lovers.

1.) Velma Barfield, a drug addict from North Carolina, forged her boyfriend's checks to fund her habit. Fearing he might find out about a $300 forged check, she poisoned his beer, the Associated Press reported. As the first woman sentenced to die in 22 years, Barfield eventually confessed to killing three others, including her own mother, The New York Times reported. She died by lethal injection in 1984.



2.) Karla Faye Tucker and an accomplice wanted to end three days of drug-induced shenanigans by stealing a motorcycle. So they killed the owner of the bike and his friend with a pickax in 1983, CNN reported. Sentenced to die for her crimes, Tucker became …

Rosemary Chavira Arrested for her Part in Gang Rape & Murder from 2002

For more than a decade police have been trying to put away the people responsible for the kidnapping, rape and murder of 15 year old Brenda Sierra. She was on her way to school one morning, taking a detour to a friends where she could catch a ride to Schurr High School in Montebello.

Brenda was killed in 2002, all along authorities knew it was somehow gang related. Earlier in the year Brenda's mother and brother had witnessed a gang murder and testified against local gang members in court. Investigators believe the gang wanted to retaliate against the family and send a message to the neighborhood to show them what happens when you cooperate with the authorities.

Brenda was 15 when two male gang members and a female gang member Rosemary Chavira also 15, abducted her from the intersection of Whittier Boulevard and Leonard Avenue, taken to a "gang hangout" and repeatedly sexually assaulted.
When the rape and assault was through, they took her to an abandoned lot and bludgeo…

Worlds Most Dangerous Female Prison

Ann Anastasi Tried It, Didn't Like it, Massacred her Husband and His GF Because of It.

This case is a cluster-fuck if I've ever heard of one. A love triangle gone wrong, mixed with a hate-filled father-daughter relationship and a gullible 18 year old boy comprise the major players in this twisted Shakespearean tragedy.

Ann Anastasi, 42, and her husband, Anthony J. Anastasi Jr., 40, had both been carrying on a romantic relationship with Jacqueline Riggs, 25, according to police. Ann and Anthony's 18-year marriage was laden with conflict and domestic abuse, police said. Ann Anastasi recently had a falling out with both her husband and Riggs, who had moved into the basement of the family home. Many long term marriages have tried adding a third person to their marriage and it rarely works out. It seems like a great idea to add excitement and lust back into a marriage gone stale over the years.

Ann recruited her 13 year old daughter and her 18 year old boyfriend, Gabriel Ezekiel Struss and the trio set about designing a plan to kill Anthony and Jacqueline. On Octobe…

Tia killed her Dad Because She Has a Bad Temper...you know

A teen convicted of murdering her father and trying to kill her mother in a knife attack at their St. Clair County home says she regrets everything and blames her actions on a “bad temper.”

Tia Skinner, who is now 19-years-old, spoke to the Times Herald of Port Huron from the confines of the Women’s Huron Valley Correctional Facility in Ypsilanti, where she’s been locked up since the Nov. 2010 attack. It was the first time the young woman has spoken out since her arrest.

Skinner, Jonathan Kurtz and James Preston were convicted last year of first-degree murder, attempted murder and conspiracy to murder.

Paul Skinner, 47, chased the masked assailants from the home before he collapsed and died from stab wounds. Mara, his wife, was critically injured after suffering more than 25 knife wounds inflicted by Kurtz and Preston.

Police say Tia Skinner planned the murder because she was angry at her parents for taking away her cell phone and for forbidding her to see Kurtz, who was her boyfrien…

Appearance on Snapped on Oxygen

Michelle Byrom, my bestie and a woman recently released from Mississippi death row, was recorded for an episode of Snapped on the Oxygen network. Michelle, her sister Renee and I were all interviewed on camera in a lawyers office in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

My assistant, Michelle, and I picked up the sisters at their brother's home in a Boro suburb and off we went to the lawyers office. It all started pretty quickly. I was amazed at how adept everyone was at their job.

Michelle was very sure of herself and not nervous at all. I was so proud of her and so excited that she was finally able to let everyone know how Mississippi treated her. Someone should be held accountable for the terror she lived for those many years.

I thought I would be nervous but I wasn't. They were so professional things seemed to just float by. Like having a conversation with a friend. I had to learn to remember to drop the pronouns and always use full names. I couldn't wear my glasses and that kinda…
