Buckle up murder podcast lovers! If you love stories about people who committed murder, you’ll love this…

In Nancy Grace’s new special, “Marrying a Murderer,” several women are profiled for choosing to be with men who have committed murder. Teresa X. Roberts opens up about marrying not just one murderer but two.

Roberts says she has three core reasons that led her to marry a murderer. “Number one, I didn’t want to live near the person, so I wouldn’t be tempted to visit,” she recalls. “Number two, I wanted somebody serving a long time, so he wouldn’t get out and basically break my heart or hurt me.” “And number three, I wanted somebody that was somewhat average looking– not super good looking, not hideous. And so I found him, like, on that website. And I was like, ‘OK, perfect” Roberts concludes.

She also confesses about her experience in her memoir, titled “Why I Married A Murderer: And How I Survived the Divorce.”
