    The mansion where the notorious 19th century suspect Lizzie Borden lived out her days after she was acquitted of the ax murders of her father and stepmother is on the market. 

    The Dallas woman who bought the Fall River, Massachusetts, home in 2014 tells The Herald News she's selling because plans to turn the home, called Maplecroft, into a bed-and-breakfast fell through.

    Lizzie Borden lived at Maplecroft from 1894 until her death in 1927.
