A South Carolina husband and wife were charged Monday with the murder of a missing cosmetology student, authorities said.

Sidney and Tammy Moorer also face kidnapping, indecent exposure and obstruction of justice charges in the Dec. 18 disappearance of Heather Elvis, 20.

Horry County Police Chief Saundra Rhodes discussed the murder charges at a Monday press conference, saying additional evidence at the Moorer’s home connected them to the crime.

“The evidence that we located there led to the charges of murder,” Rhodes said.

Authorities declined to identify the incriminating evidence. Elvis’s body has not been located.

An Arkansas man is facing first degree murder charges after allegedly gunning down a 15 year old girl in retaliation over a prank.

According to authorities, it all began shortly after 1AM on Saturday night, when Adrian Broadway, 15, and a group of friends covered a car belonging to Willie Noble, 48, with eggs, leaves and mayonnaise.

The prank was the second prank that Broadway and her friends had played on Noble that day, and this time Noble was livid, running out of his home and firing shots at the car being driven by the young pranksters.

 

After the shots were fired, the teens managed to escape to a local gas station, where they called an ambulance for Broadway, who’d been struck in the head by a bullet. She was taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital but later passed away.

Witnesses say the teens were driving away when Mr. Noble came from inside his home and began firing into the car the teen’s were driving.

It is believed that Noble and her friends were pranking Mr. Noble, who has been charged with first degree murder, in retaliation for a Halloween trick played on them by Noble’s son.

We’ll see how many of these killings actually materialize, but may the Lord bless any victims in this case…

SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman charged along with her newlywed husband in the murder of a man they met through Craigslist admitted to the slaying in a jailhouse interview with a newspaper and said she has killed more than 20 others across the country, claims police said they are investigating.

In an interview with the Daily Item in Sunbury, Pa., 19-year-old Miranda Barbour said she wants to plead guilty to killing Troy LeFerrara in November. She also said in the interview that she has killed at least 22 other people from Alaska to North Carolina in the last six years as part of her involvement in a satanic cult.

“I feel it is time to get all of this out. I don’t care if people believe me. I just want to get it out,” Barbour told the newspaper for a story published Saturday night (http://bit.ly/1gN81z3).

Sunbury police Chief Steve Mazzeo told the newspaper that investigators have been in contact with the FBI and law enforcement in several other states.

Authorities said Miranda Barbour, a petite woman with long brown hair, told investigators she met the 6-foot-2, 278-pound victim after he responded to her Craigslist ad offering companionship for money.

Police allege in court papers that Elytte Barbour told investigators they committed the crime because they wanted to kill someone together. The couple, who were married in North Carolina and moved to Pennsylvania about three weeks before the crime, told police Miranda Barbour stabbed LaFerrara in the front seat of her car while her husband held a cord around his neck.

She said in the interview that she doesn’t want to get out of jail and that she would kill again if she were released.

Barbour and her husband, 22-year-old Elytte Barbour, murdered 42-year-old Troy LaFerrera in November. Miranda Barbour said they lured the victim to them by offering sex for $100. She allegedly stabbed the victim 20 times as her husband strapped a cord around the victim’s neck.

“He said the wrong things…and then things got out of control,” she said. “I can tell you he was not supposed to be stabbed. My husband was just supposed to strangle him.”

The other killings Barbour claims she committed were in Alaska, Texas, North Carolina and California.

“I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them… When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” she said.

Barbour reportedly said she would lure her victims in and then study them. She would even become their friend in some cases. She said she only killed “bad people,” and that the majority of the killings were in Alaska—where she said she joined a satanic cult at the age of 13.
