Black Widow

I love when the media calls a murder suspect "the black widow." Whenever a man kills his wife, it's par for the course, but when a woman is accused of killing her husband, she's "The Black Widow."

Scared yet? Here's our most recent black widow: Betty Neumar, awaiting trial for solicitation of murder in Stanly County. Read press here.

The higher profile "black widow" is Blanche Taylor Moore, currently on NC's death row. Her story was made into the 90s TV movie "The Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story." I'm sure the acting was tremendous.
