A newly married couple in Sunbury, Pennsylvania is charged with luring a man into their car and murdering him for "the sheer thrill of it." 22-year-old Elytte Barbour and his 18-year-old wife, Miranda Barbour, allegedly killed 42-year-old Troy La Ferrara after picking him up at a mall in their Honda CRV. Miranda was charged on Wednesday, while Elytte was charged last night in the death of LaFerrara, whose body was found in an alleyway. They're both being held without bail.
Police say Miranda had initially lured the victim through a Craigslist dating advertisement before strangling him and stabbing him repeatedly with Elytte. Apparently, the couple "just wanted to murder someone together," Sunbury Police Corporal Brad Hare told Reuters. SO horrifying.
Miranda originally told authorities that she had killed La Ferrara in self-defense, but then confessed that she and Elytte murdered him together.

Making this disturbing matter even more complicated and insane: Police said the death of the father of Miranda's 1 1/2-year-old child could lead to further murder investigations linked to the Barbours in other states ... And Elytte apparently hinted that he and Miranda had tried to kill before, but it hadn't worked out, noting, "La Ferrara was just the one with whom it worked," he told police.
Here's hoping authorities get to the bottom of this disturbing chain of events -- and are able to punish accordingly.
What do you think should be done with the Barbours?
