Brooke Rottiers used her bras and underwear to strangle two men to death, and even shoved a pair of panties down one man's throat. Brittany Holberg couldn't decide on the perfect murder weapon, so she used a butcher knife, a grapefruit knife, two forks, a hammer, a skillet, a steam iron, a space heater, and a lamp pole to dispatch her victim. And Juanita Spinelli, known as "The Duchess," never killed anyone with her own hands but still earned a trip to the gas chamber as the leader of a gang of carnival rejects and misfit criminals.
Death Row's Wildest Women takes a wry, irreverent look at 13 of history's most ferocious females. Meet Eva Dugan, AKA Claw-Finger Kitty, a former cabaret dancer who literally lost her head on the day of her hanging due to a faulty noose. Learn about Antoinette Frank, the crooked cop who killed two people during a restaurant robbery then showed up at the murder scene again hours later to investigate the crime. Read about a woman who had sex with a future state senator in the back seat of a car on her way to the electric chair, and another woman who experienced sexual pleasure with every swing of her pickax as she committed a gruesome double murder.
These death row inmates had one thing in common; they were all women, but their behavior was anything but ladylike.
