The other day, I posted a couple of articles about violence committed by women. One of the articles noted that female serial killers generally kill for money. This came back to me when I read about Angelika Graswald's confession to killing her fiance.
A woman charged with killing her fiancée has admitted she tampered with his kayak and relished watching him sink to his death in the Hudson River, police said.
Angelika Graswald, 35, initially told police she had tried to save Vincent Viafore, 46, when he capsized in the choppy water near Poughkeepsie, New York, on April 19.
But according to detectives, her story became inconsistent - and witnesses said they saw her push him in.
Now, following intense cross-examination by detectives, former bartender Graswald has admitted to plotting Viafore's death, and told police 'it felt good knowing he was going to die' because she felt trapped in their relationship, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office.
The news comes as it emerges Graswald stood to land $250,000 in insurance pay-outs after the death of her long-term partner Vincent Viafore, 46, as she was a signatory on his two life plans - and had allegedly been planning what to do with the money.
