Plot Synopsis

Using first-person interviews with family members, friends, witnesses, investigators and journalists -- as well as psychologists, lawyers and when possible, the subjects themselves -- this true-crime series features the salacious and shocking stories of women who have been arrested for a crime they did in the name of love. From a killing spree across the Midwest to being an inside informant at the DEA and from murdering an unsupportive mother to robbing fifteen banks in under a year, these women have no limits as to how far they'll go for their men. Each one-hour episode chronicles a different love story gone very wrong for these women: Yvette Gay (Little Washington, NC), who follows a married man into a murderous plot to kill his wife; Vanessa Coleman (Knoxville, TN), who joins Letalvis Cobbins on a drug-induced, gun-pointing kidnapping of a couple; Victoria Jackson (Tampa, FL), who commits the ultimate act of betrayal against one of her own family members -- at the request of her jealous boyfriend; Felicia Scott (Tuscaloosa, AL), who goes into homicidal tailspin when she is unable to bear her husband a child; Debra Brown (Waukegan, IL), who falls for serial child predator Alton Coleman and becomes one of the FBI's Most Wanted fugitives; and Chakkira Wonnum (Wilmington, DE), who escapes an abusive home and runs into the arms of a dangerous drug addict.
