From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cynthia Coffman (born 1962) was the partner in crime of James Gregory Marlow. She was born St. Louis, Missouri.[1]

Coffman and Marlow were accused of killing four women in October–November 1986. They were arrested on November 14, 1986,[2], following which Coffman confessed to the murders.[3] They were put on trial in July 1989, and in 1990 sentenced to death, Coffman being the first person to receive a death sentence in California since the reinstatement of the death penalty in 1977.[4] A further trial in 1992 convicted her for another murder with a sentence of life imprisonment.[2] She was still on death row in 2009.[2]
