4. Karla Homolka
Karla Homolka is Canada’s most notorious female serial killer. She helped her husband, Paul Bernardo, rape and murder at least three women, one of them being her younger sister. She received a pretty light sentence for her crimes thanks to the plea deal that she struck with the prosecution. In exchange for her testimony against Bernardo, she received a reduced prison sentence of just 12 years.
The prosecution didn’t feel badly about this deal at first. Homolka claimed that Bernardo had been abusing her and that she had been forced to participate in the murders; however, video evidence later surfaced, proving that she wasn’t a victim but an active participant in all of the murders. There was nothing that could be done though and her deal with the prosecutors has become known as the “Deal with the Devil” as a result.
