She was already convicted in the murder of her husband's ex-girlfriend when authorities also convicted Amanda Hayes, of Fort Bend County, North Carolina, of feeding the woman's body to alligators after trying to dissolve it in acid.
Amanda Hayes is an actress who has appeared on The Sopranos HBO series as well as the Nicole Kidman movie The Stepford Wives.
Authorities found the torso and leg of Laura Ackerson in the Oyster Creek in Richmond on July 24, 2011. Dive teams found more of Ackerson's remains later. Ms. Ackerson was murdered by Grant and Amanda Hayes in the couple's Raleigh, North Carolina apartment in 2011, according to the DA's office.
The last anyone had heard, she was headed to Grant and Amanda's house to pick up the two small boys that she shared with Grant and discuss child support. The couple murdered Ackerson, dismembered her body with a power saw, and packed it into coolers. They drove to Richmond, to the home of Amanda Hayes' sister.
