Mom kills, man she met on Craigslist before treating husband to birthday dinner…
A heartless, married 18-year-old mom stabbed to death a client who had hired her through Craigslist for companionship before the Pennsylvania woman dumped the mans body and took her husband to a birthday dinner, prosecutors say.
Miranda Barbour, 18, had only lived in Selinsgrove since late October before she allegedly slashed Troy LaFerrara, 42, about 20 times on Nov. 11, the Daily Item newspaper reports. After the stabbing, the devious mom allegedly nudged the man out of her car and into an alley as LaFerrara gasped for air and died.
His body was found the next day, but Barbour wasnt arrested until Tuesday. The teen is charged with criminal homicide, aggravated assault, possession of instruments of crime and simple assault.
Cops were stumped in the murder investigation until phone records revealed Barbour, who moved to the central Pennsylvania area north of Harrisburg from North Carolina, was the last person LaFerrara called before he died. Police later recovered a text message conversation between the two.
Im dropping my daughter off right now then Ill be at the mall in about 15, the teen mom reportedly wrote before the alleged fatal rendezvous.
After the two met at the Susquehanna Valley Mall, Barbour drove LaFerrara to a spot where the man started to grope her and put his hands on her throat, the newspaper reports. In a panic, she pulled out a knife she kept in the car for such visits with men and stabbed him three times before she blacked out and didnt remember the rest of the times she stabbed him, cops told the Daily Item.
Barbour drove around before picking an alley, where she opened the door and watched a gasping LaFerrara fall to the ground. She told cops she nudged his foot out, took his wallet from his pants and drove off.
She then bought cleaning supplies and wiped down her car, the paper reports, before going home and taking her hubby for a birthday dinner in Harrisburg.
LaFerrara was married, too, and friends told the Daily Item he frequented strip clubs.
Barbour kept the knife until about a week ago, when she told cops she chucked the murder weapon into the nearby Susquehanna River.
