Publisher Comments:

The Black Widow

They met while working together at a Taco Bell in Augusta, Georgia: seventeen-year-old Larry Kelley and thirty-one-year-old wife and mother Gina Spann. Their unusual friendship soon blossomed into something much more when Gina invited Larry to live with her, her husband Kevin, and their teenage son. While Kevin slept in a back room of the house, Larry and Ginal shared the master bedroom, flaunthing their love in front of Kevin.

The Humiliated Husband

But it didn't stop there. Gina enlisted Larry and three of his friend to murder huer husband and cash in on his $300,000 life insurance policy. So on Mother's Day of 1997, two teenagers knocked on the Spanns' door, and when Kevin opened it, shot him point-blank. As Kevin Spann's lifeless body hit the ground, his two assassins sauntered away casually.

The Lovesick Teenager

Police zeroed in on the motley crew soon enough — and each would pay heavily for their crime. Gina, Larry, and two of his friend would each receive life sentences for the ruthless murder of Kevin Spann. In a case as twisted and shocking as fiction, bestselling author Wensley Clarkson explores this volatile web of sex, greed, and murder that ended in deadly disaster.

Synopsis:

On Mother's Day in 1997, a woman enlisted the help of a teenage lover and his friends to kill her husband to collect his life insurance policy. This true account of the murder and the trial that resulted in lifetime prison sentences includes eight pages of photos.
