4“Natural Born Killers” Caril Fugate Says Charles Starkweather Kidnapped Her
The pair became inseparable and that's when things got ugly. In addition to the killing of a service station attendant, the two went on a week-long murder spree in 1958, killing Caril's parents and 9 other people. (This would become the basis of Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers amongst other Hollywood films.)
Caril, maintained her innocence the entire time, saying Charles threatened and forced her to do the crimes. The judge, however, did not believe her. Charles ended up frying in the electric chair and Caril was released from prison in 1976 after 17 years behind bars.

6Murderous Porn Star Repents, Fingers Ex-Lover
Amanda Logue (a.k.a., Sunny Dae) and Jason Andrews were porn stars who often bragged about their exploits on Twitter. Amanda was hired by Dennis “Scooter” Abrahamsen for a sex party at his Florida home. However, it turned out to not be so “sexy” – Scooter was found dead the next morning. A trail of electronic messages between Amanda and Jason pointed to them as the culprits, including Amanda texting "I'm (expletive) exited (sic) … I want to (have sex) after we kill hum (sic)." They were thrown in jail briefly for an unrelated theft (and before being charged for murder).
Amanda paid her bail and fled to Georgia, reunited with husband, and turned to the church for salvation. When later questioned by a detective she said she was at the scene, but that Jason did the deed. Both were eventually tried and convicted.

8Serial Killer Rosemary West Turns On Fred, He Hangs Himself
Fred had a learning disability and Rosemary was a very convincing liar; somehow they used these traits to escape detection for many years. When they were finally caught in 1994, at least 12 bodies were found buried on their property. However, during the arraignment Rose turned on Fred, turning away from him when he tried to touch her. Fred was found hanging in his cell on New Years Day, 1995 before he could go to trial.
Rose tried to portray herself as a victim, but judge and jury were not convinced. She is serving multiple life sentences in a high-security prison, and says she is “happy."

Sunny was jailed in Florida for the murder of 2 police officers and Peter in Ireland for a similar crime. Peter was exonerated in 1992, and Mary in 1998 and they met as she was traveling the world railing against the death penalty. They married in Ireland in 2006 and then again officially in New York City in 2011; they are now both senior citizens (he's 74, she's 63) and committed to campaigning for human rights. We feel better now, do you?
