New York online marketing manager Michelle Sandoval is working with Oxygen Media to get the word out about "Snapped," a true-crime series that profiles women who kill. Michelle contacted Women in Crime Ink and asked us to give the show some ink. The following material is reproduced from the Web site:
Manuela Garcia - The Garcias seemed like an average American family, that is, until Manuela attacked her husband with an axe. The murder triggered an investigation that would expose a life of unhappiness, abuse and desperation.
Phyllis Nelson - Angry over her estranged husband's affair, Phyllis Nelson decided to confront him at his new apartment. They had a heated argument that ended abruptly when Dr. Nelson "ran into" her knife.
Joan Shannon - When Joan Shannon's soldier husband was shot to death by her teenaged daughter, it didn't take long before authorities suspected that mom may have played a role in the demise of her well-insured spouse.
Dora Cisneros - When Dora Cisneros' daughter was dumped by her high school sweetheart, Dora immediately consulted with her fortune-teller. And when the boy was later found dead, police would learn that it wasn't a conjured spirit that took his life. It was an overzealous mom and an elaborate murder plot.
Susan Polk - During an acrimonious divorce, Susan Polk and her husband Felix both threatened to kill each other, but only one of them actually followed through.
Darlene Gentry - Marriage and three kids didn't stop Darlene Gentry from her favorite pursuits: drinking, drugs, and dancing. But when money troubles threatend to spoil her fun, she decided her husband was worth more to her dead than alive.
