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.

I've never been fond of the death penalty, when you think about it a lifetime in prison is more punishment than just being put to death, I'd say.

So what she did wasn't cruel and inhuman? Gotta love how the criminal tries to play the victim role.

Go and visit any psychiatric group home. At least half of the residents will claim to have committed multiple murders. Shame on the media for hyping her mentally ill claims.

Whether torture was involved or not, the murders were premeditated, which is all that is needed to seek the death penalty.

Anyone can read online articles of ppl who've gone missing across the country, those with sociopathic tendencies are more careful, methodical and organized. They don't contact victims on cell phones registered in their name, they won't rage kill their victims in the front seat of their personal vehicle, dispose of a body so carelessly. This amateur may have had a part in the death if her baby's father and this one man from Craiglist but no more than that. Her and her husband are frauds!
