    A woman charged along with her newlywed husband with killing a man she met through Craigslist tells a newspaper that two other men had responded to her ad for companionship but never showed up.

    Nineteen-year-old Miranda Barbour tells The Daily Item of Sunbury that their failure to show saved the men's lives. The newspaper interviewed Barbour at a state prison on Tuesday. The story appeared on the newspaper's website Saturday.

    Police say Barbour met 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara, of Port Trevorton, through Craigslist and stabbed him to death in her parked car in Sunbury last November with the help of her husband, Elytte Barbour.

    Miranda Barbour claims she previously killed more than 20 people in Alaska, Texas, North Carolina and California. Investigators say they have found no evidence to substantiate her claims.
