First Lady Of The Electric Chair
Episode 212 tells the story behind the first walk of a woman to the electric chair. One cold winter night, a woman apparently attacks her husband with an axe as he walks through the door, leaving him for dead in the entryway. Besides this gruesome sight, neighbors are about to discover a whole house full of horrors.
