All of us guys have been there before. It’s an old story. You’re hanging out with this new hot chick, and everything seems cool. Then all of a sudden, she starts acting a little bit odd, like she starts asking you repeatedly if her eyebrows are even. Or maybe she begins to act totally crazy, like she wakes you up one night with a chainsaw in her hands. But you know, you just keep hanging in there, well, because she is hot.
And besides, we tend to assume that a beautiful woman couldn’t possibly be a cold-blooded killer, even if the scary truth is, she could be. We tend to ignore the fact that beauty can’t hide a woman’s flaws and insanity forever — that all beauty really does is mask her deficiencies for a little while. Actually, some of these women may have become so evil and crazy in part because they are so hot, because they believe a beautiful woman can get away with anything. Even murder. But hey, don’t worry about your girlfriend. I’m sure she’s perfectly normal. That is, until she snaps.
The following is a list of 15 women who were accused of murder — some of them found guilty and sent to prison, and a couple of them who got away with their crimes or were possibly truly innocent. Who knows really? But without a doubt, what all of them have in common is that they are all totally hot, although all of them also seem to spell trouble.
Here are the 15 hottest women ever accused of murder:
15. Mindy Sanghera
There is no doubt that Mindy is super hot. But unfortunately, she was involved in an affair with a married rich businessman and ended up being convicted of murdering his pregnant wife by stabbing her 40 times. For that, she was sentenced to life in prison. Actually, there has been talk of Mindy being innocent, as all of the evidence was said to be purely circumstantial, but so far no appeals have worked. Well, that’s probably because if someone’s pregnant wife ends up being murdered in her bed by being stabbed 40 times, that someone’s mistress is likely going to end up being pinned for the crime. Oh, and incidentally, Mindy lives in England, which seems to be a trend on this list so far. So guys, if you live in England and have a totally hot girlfriend, look out.
14. Darlene Gentry
Darlene Gentry was a gorgeous married woman from Texas. In fact, to an outsider, it may have seemed that everything was perfect in her world. But the truth was that her marriage was quickly going down the tubes. Then this happened: “On November 5, 2005 at 6:00 a.m., Darlene made a desperate 9-1-1 phone call, telling the operator that her husband had been shot by a would-be robber, who had evacuated the premises. The operator sent police as Darlene continued wailing on the phone. ‘There’s um, blood on the bed and he is gurgling.’” Yeah you guessed it; she killed her husband and tried the old “robber” story, which by the way, pretty much never seems to work out. In the end, Darlene was convicted of murder and sentenced to 60 years in prison.
13. Amber Hilberling
What a story this one is. Amber from Oklahoma was a super hot woman who was convicted of murder for pushing her husband out of a high rise apartment that they shared, causing him to fall 17 stories to his death. (Now, I have to say, that is not a good way to go, but now that I think of it, when you are murdered, pretty much no way is.) She claimed that they had been fighting and that she, not knowing that he would fall through the window, had pushed him off of her in self defense. Prosecutors, however, pointed out that there was no sign of struggle in the apartment, and that even if she had pushed him off of her, she didn’t need to push him through a window. The jury agreed with them, and she was convicted to 25 years in prison for murder. She was serving this sentence when she shockingly hung herself in her cell.
12. Jodi Arias
Jodi Arias is another looker who is totally messed in the head. In fact, she was so messed up that she killed her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, who was found in the shower with 27 stab wounds, a slit throat, and a gunshot wound to the head. She claimed she had done it in self defense. Okay then… but the jury did not buy her story and sentenced her to life in prison — actually a merciful sentence considering that the prosecution was seeking the death penalty in this heavily media-covered case. Quite disturbingly, at her sentencing, Jodi wept. “The most important thing I want to say is that I’m very sorry for the enormous pain I caused to the people who loved Travis. I’m truly disgusted and I’m repulsed with myself.” Well at least you have that, Jodi.
11. Megan Martzen
Megan is a total hottie; there is absolutely no doubt about that. Still though, there are a few negatives surrounding her, including that she was charged with murder when a 4-year-old baby that she was babysitting died. Megan maintained her innocence throughout the trial, and claimed that what had happened was that the baby had fallen off a bed and had become immediately unresponsive afterwards. In the end, her murder trial resulted in a hung jury, and she ended up getting just probation and community service. And hey, maybe she was innocent, who knows? Besides, this is really about how hot she is and how she was accused of murder, not so much about whether or not she really did it. What we can be pretty sure of, however, is that it’s pretty unlikely Megan has been offered any other babysitting jobs since.
10. Lorraine Thorpe
Lorraine is from England and was just 15 at the time of her murders. And yes, I did say murders as she, with a partner named Paul Clarke, was convicted of two. That conviction made Lorraine the youngest female double murderer of Britain. What exactly happened? According to Murderpedia, Thorpe and Clarke violently tortured a certain Rosalyn Hunt before killing her. Then, afterwards, the two killed Desmond Thorpe, Lorraine’s father, because they feared he could tell others about the murder of Rosalyn. The connection between Mrs. Hunt and Mr. Thorpe is actually not very clear, but both were “members of the street-drinking community in Ipswich.” For the killings, Lorraine was sentenced to life in prison, which, you know, really makes a lot of sense when you think about it. After all, no matter how young and hot you are, you simply cannot just go around killing people — especially your father — whenever you feel like it.
9. Rachel Wade
Rachel Wade and Sarah Ludemann both liked the same guy, so much so that the two started messing with each other about it. They left each other nasty voicemails and screwed with each other in various ways. Actually, Rachel was first to go out with the guy; then, when they broke up, Sarah started dating him. Unfortunately, Rachel eventually decided she had had enough of the whole scene, suffered from what is commonly known as a “thinking error,” and stabbed Sarah to death — an act also known as murder. And for this murder she was convicted and sentenced to 27 years in prison. The moral of this whole story: no guy, or woman for that matter, is worth totally losing your mind and killing someone over. One would not think that doesn’t need to be spelled out, but apparently, as this case proves, it does.
8. Brittany Norwood
While she is obviously more than a little attractive, Brittany Norwood also has more than a few issues. She actually seemed to be a relatively normal woman who used to work at a Lululemon store. That is, until she was suspected of stealing. Her supervisor, Jayna Murray, confronted her after hours about some merchandise that Brittany was thought to have been trying to steal. That made Brittany snap. She first killed her supervisor by using at least five different weapons to inflict more than 330 wounds. Then, she wounded herself and made up a story about men coming in, raping her, and killing her supervisor. Needless to say, her version of the story came unraveled, and she ended up being sentenced to life in prison without parole.
7. Sarah Bunch
Aww, look at that pretty face… So sad after being sentenced to 13 years for killing a man and setting fire to his house. Why such a short sentence? Well, according to The Blade, “Bunch maintained she killed him in self-defense. She told investigators she agreed to let him take photos of her semi-nude, but he became aggressive and tried to sexually assault her. That’s when she took a gun she had taken to his house and shot him twice in the head.” Looks like an age old story of “hot girl agrees to model without her clothes on for creepy guy, then creepy guy gets a little out of hand, and hot girl blows him away with a gun.” Let this be lesson for all hot girls and creepy guys out there: stay away from each other.
6. Jane Andrews
Wow, look at that total chick on the right, Jane Andrews. And yes, that woman Jane is hanging out with is Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. Jane was actually the Royal Dresser for Sarah, and all seemed to be going well in her life. Until, you know, the murder… Jane took off with her boyfriend on a vacation, one in which she thought he was going to ask her to marry him. Instead, he ended up telling her that he had no desire to marry her at all. So she did what most women would do in that situation: waited until he fell asleep in bed, hit him in the head with a cricket bat, and stabbed him, causing his death. She was later convicted of murder, sentenced to life in prison, and even managed to escape at one point. Still, despite her additional offense, she was let out of prison early in 2015 and walks free today. So guys, if you are looking for a classy lady…
5. Estibaliz Carranza
This chick is hot, no doubt, but still probably not someone that you want to date — unless you want to be murdered and cut up with a chainsaw, which is what happened to her husband and her lover. According to Murderpedia, “Carranza shot Holger Holz and Manfred Hinterberger, dismembered them and then concealed the parts in lumps of concrete that she then stashed in the cellar of her “Schleckeria” [which means ice cream] shop in the Austrian capital. The grisly remains were discovered by chance during maintenance work in June 2011. After going on the run to Italy, Carranza was captured several days afterwards and later extradited.” The coolest part of all this? Estibaliz didn’t even go to prison and was instead sent to a mental institution.
4. Andria Kerchner
Kerchner wasn’t really accused of killing someone herself, but she was in the car when her boyfriend shot and killed a female police officer. Actually, the officer had pulled over Kerchner’s boyfriend for a mere traffic stop, but because the boyfriend was wanted for a probation violation, he decided to kill the officer instead of going to jail for a short period of time. Bad decision. Kerchner ended up taking a plea deal and testified against her murdering boyfriend, but she still got 12 years in prison anyway. Notice another trend? Almost every single person on this list got into trouble either because of being in a bad relationship or choosing someone to go out with that was really bad for them. It’s almost enough for anyone to want to stay single — well, except for how hot the chicks all are.
3. Mechele Linehan
Mechelle is just adorable. Look at that face! Just so cute! She was actually a stripper from Alaska who was convicted for murder after the man she was engaged to at the time was found shot to death. It was said that she had manipulated another man, whom she had been having an affair with, to kill her fiance. Why? Well, apparently, the motive for the killing was a million-dollar life insurance policy. In the end, she served a mere two-and-a-half years in prison before she was released on appeal. So guys, here is a pro tip for all of you: if you are engaged to a stripper, and it seems like she may be crazy enough to want to get her hands on the million-dollar life insurance policy on your head, you may want to go on the run as soon as possible.
2. Casey Anthony
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without Casey Anthony. Definitely hot. And some believe, crazy enough to have murdered her two-year-old child. Needless to say, the case resulted in an enormous media circus, as cases like these — involving the murder of a child by the mother, who also happens to be a hot defendant — usually do. And as if the case hadn’t attracted enough attention, Casey was shockingly found not guilty. Of course, that hasn’t stopped people all over the world from believing she actually did it, and still feeling pretty angry about her getting off. As for Casey, she has recently been busy attending Trump protests and showing off her cute dog.
1. Amanda Knox
Amanda Knox is perhaps the hottest of them all, which is obviously part of the reason why she is incredibly famous as far as accused murderers go. Aside from her attractiveness, however, the oddity of her case also lends her a lot of fame. She was an American exchange student in Italy when was accused and convicted of murdering her roommate, who was another exchange student. She then ended up spending four years in an Italian prison before she was acquitted and came back home to Seattle, Washington. Since then, she has finished her degree at the University of Washington, gotten a job at a bookstore, and written a bit for a local paper. Kind of a quiet end for someone who was involved in such a sensational case, right? I’m sure Amanda makes many guys wonder if she’s dating someone now. After all, she is totally hot — even if she was once convicted of murder.
