This teen (16 at the time) and some teen friends killed a whole family (children too). She's serving a life sentence, but after 20 years, she "is tired of prison and wants to be free". It doesn't work that way.
Just a little more info about this particular case, her name is Natasha Wallen Cornett and she and five of her friends were accused of murdering Vidar Lillelid (34), his American wife Delfina (28) and their daughter Tabitha (6) on April 6th, 1997. The couples 2 year old son was also shot, but he survived.
It should be noted also that Cornett is a self proclaimed satan worshiper.
She was arrested 2 days later and at her trial, plead guilty to all charges to avoid the death penalty. The murders occurred in Tennessee. In her testimony it was strongly argued that she didn't participate in any of the murders, and actually tried to stop them. Of course, none of the other five involved would corroborate her story and she was found guilty and sentenced to three life sentences without parole. I didn't read a whole lot more on the case, so I don't know much about the others involved in the murders. I think this particular case with her stands out because it was so strongly argued that she didn't actually participate in the killings, yet still plead guilty to all charges.
Is she telling the truth, or not? Who knows? Just the fact that she was friends with people who would do this seems to incriminate her enough. Kind of hard to buy she wasn't actually involved. I personally don't buy her story, and hope she never gets out of prison. More info here: murderpedia.org/female.C/c/cornett-natasha.htm
I do too. Just something fascinating about why people do these things. Of course, I always love it when years later they want parole and are saying how sorry they are for what they've done. That may be, many are young like this girl when they commit their crimes, but the people they killed and their families don't get a second chance, why should they?
