SUNBURY, Pa. -- The father of a Pennsylvania woman who with her newlywed husband is charged with killing a man she met through Craigslist says he would support his daughter's execution if she is found guilty.
Sonny Dean of Texas also tells the Daily Item newspaper Wednesday that his 19-year-old daughter, Miranda Barbour, may have been involved in one murder other than her alleged participation in the slaying of Troy LaFerrara.
The 42-year-old man was fatally stabbed Nov. 11 in Sunbury.
Sunbury police accuse Miranda Barbour and her 22-year-old husband, Elytte Barbour, of LaFerrara's killing.
Miranda Barbour's father tells the newspaper that his daughter is a manipulative liar but he doesn't think she's a mass murderer.
She claims she killed at least 22 people.
