Accused Satanic Murderer

Spare Me From the Death Penalty

2/17/2014 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miranda Barbour -- who claims to have committed between 22 and 100 murders -- claims she should not be subject to the death penalty because it's "cruel and inhuman punishment."

In legal docs filed by her lawyer, Miranda argues it would be unfair to put her to death -- even if convicted -- because "the criminal justice system is fallible, thereby subjecting inappropriate persons to the death penalty."

As for whether Barbour is an "inappropriate person" ... hard to make the argument since she confessed to cops.  But her lawyer has an answer for that ... asking the court to throw out her confession on grounds cops violated her constitutional rights.

Barbour's lawyer says she repeatedly asked for an attorney, only to be denied.

But there's a big snag ... Barbour then confessed to knifing a man she met on Craigslist and a lot more last Thursday to a local reporter.  That confession is fair game.

And one more thing -- In her lawyer's argument against the death penalty, the attorney notes the state of Pennsylvania wants her executed because this Craigslist murder was a crime of torture -- stabbing the guy 20 times. The lawyer says there's NO evidence of torture.

She's like a super-hero. Only without a single, redeeming human quality.

Okay killing between 22-100 people should get the death penalty. This bitch should have thought about that before becoming a serial killer. And unlike Dexter she ****ed up having her hubby be her partner in crime. Honestly she could not even be in the media right now if she actually followed the rules Dexter had. Remember when he teamed up with that DA and then Luna, wasn't gonna end well so he got rid of them. Dumb bitch.

Confession or DNA prove it 100%.
Pretty hypocritical coming from her.

If you pray to Satan, then why would you not want the death penalty? You get to go to hell real quick and meet him.
Too late now to say, "just kidding".

Well, she's in Pennsylvania... Maybe they should just set her up on a date with Ben Roethlisberger and call it even.

She could have turned her life around if she had gone to hear the Snake Preacher's sermons.

I have a question for Miranda; Were your victims subjected to cruel and inhuman punishment?
