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.

Two more women have testified that Roger Allen Stulce Jr. forced them to have anal sex multiple times despite their pleas that he stop.

One woman testified that she was sexually assaulted by Stulce in 2008 in McKinney and that he attempted to assault her again in 2009 while she was living in California. The 39-year-old woman said she was afraid of Stulce and sought help from police. She was eventually granted a 10-year restraining order while Stulce served jail time in California. She testified that she was unsure what his charge was.

A second woman testified that she met Stulce through a free online dating site called Plenty of Fish. They chatted over the phone, through texts and online for several weeks before deciding to meet in person.

The woman testified that they met one afternoon in December 2011 at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and then went out to eat at an Italian diner in McKinney. After that, Stulce invited her back to his McKinney apartment. They picked up two horror movies from Red Box.

She said they started making out and moved into the bedroom. There, she testified, he became forceful. “I said, ‘No, no no, stop, you’re hurting me.” She said he responded, saying, “Just be a good little girl and relax.”

The woman said she bit the pillow and cried until it was over. He told her to take a shower. Afterward, he forced her again to have sex, she said. She took another shower. He then showered and took her to the movie theater to see Breaking Dawn: Part 1. He paid for the movie as well as drinks and popcorn, she said.

“I was intimidated,” the woman testified, explaining why she sat through the movie with Stulce and didn’t seek help. “I wasn’t sure what happened to me. I felt overpowered, dominated.”

After the movie, Stulce dropped her off near her home. She said they talked by phone two or three times after that but she never saw him again. She didn’t tell anyone what happened. She said she didn’t go to police until she learned about his arrest last year on the news.

McKinney Police Detective Teresa Lynch testified that she went undercover in March 2012 after police received a complaint about Roger Allen Stulce Jr.

Lynch said she responded to a Craigslist ad about an apartment for rent. She met Stulce at his apartment and discussed terms. She told him she couldn’t afford the $725 a month in rent and said she’d have to try to come up with the money.

They met again the next day, and Lynch testified that she wore a wire with an audio feed as Stulce offered her a deal. She testified that he told her that she could have sex with him for a down payment and then give him oral sex every month. Lynch said she gave her code word and other detectives arrived. Stulce was arrested on a charge of promotion of prostitution. That charge was later dropped by the district attorney’s office.

(CNN) — Two Indianapolis brothers have been charged in the slaying of an Iraq war veteran who was trying to purchase an iPad through Craigslist, the Marion County prosecutor’s office said.

James Vester, 32, was shot to death Wednesday in an Indianapolis parking lot. The father of a 1-year-old boy had served 12 years in the Indiana National Guard, including a year in Iraq.

He was a mechanic for the Guard and was a member of the Guard’s ceremonial team, which appears at funerals and special events.

Authorities said Vester was responding to a Craigslist ad when he went to the west side of Indianapolis to purchase the iPad as a Christmas present for a parent.
