Woman Sentenced for Killing Ex’s Mom, Who Was Her Boss …

On Thursday, before being sentenced to 23 years in prison in the 2015 poisoning death of her ex-boyfriend’s mother, a 24-year-old New York woman insisted she was innocent of the crime of which she’d been convicted three months earlier.

IFC Films recently released the German-made documentary “Killing for Love,” a feature-length look at the 1985 murders of Derek and Nancy Haysom, a married couple fatally stabbed at their Bedford County home, and the conviction of their daughter, Elizabeth Haysom, and her then-boyfriend, Jens Soering.

Soering and Haysom, both students at the University of Virginia at the time of the killings, were sentenced to two life sentences and a 90-year sentence, respectively. Soering confessed to committing the murders and Haysom pleaded guilty to being an accessory before the fact.
