Dang, looking at my first post today, it’s pretty long. So here’s one that’s short. I’ve posted a couple times about the two L.A. ladies who allegedly took out mammoth life insurance policies on homeless men and then killed them. They previously faced only federal fraud charges, but those have now been dismissed in favor of state murder charges. Here is a very good story from the L.A. Times on the developments. My previous posts are here and here and here.
