Marie Dean Arrington is an American criminal. In 1969 she became one of the first women to be placed on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives

Originally sentenced to death for the murder of a Florida legal secretary who worked for a public defender who unsuccessfully represented her two children on felony charges, escaping from prison in 1969 while awaiting execution by cutting through a window screen and fled in her pajamas.

After she was caught, she was sentenced in 1972 to 10 additional years for escape, but her death sentence was commuted to life in prison when the Florida Supreme Court struck down capital punishment as unconstitutional. She remains in prison in Florida today.
