78-year-old Widow charged with murder
« on: June 11, 2013, 07:45 PM »

"Black Widow" as she is popularly known in Canada for her scheming way of luring mourning widowers to marry her, pleaded guilty on Monday to poisoning the man she married days earlier.

Last October after her latest husband, Fred Weeks, fell ill after breakfast in Nova Scotia, Melissa Ann Shepard who is 78 pleaded guilty to administering noxious substance in his food, but attempted murder charge was dropped because the prosecution could not prove that Melissa intended to kill Fred.

Mellisa was known as "Black Widow" because of her previous convictions on her past relationships.
 In 1992 she was convicted of manslaughter as a result of her second husband, Gordon Stewart, death who she was accused to had drugged and ran over twice with a car.
In 2005, She was sentence to five years imprisonment on a 7 counts charge of theft from a man in Florida who she had met online. Alex Strategos, now 81, claimed she had stole $20,000 from him over the 29 days they lived together.

In the latest case, the prosecution read an agreed statement of facts in court, saying Shepard mixed the tranquilizers Lorazepam and Temazepam into Weeks' drinks while they were aboard a ferry from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, on their way to Port-aux-Basques, Newfoundland, for their honeymoon. A ferry employee told investigators that when Weeks came aboard the ferry bound for Newfoundland, he was spry enough to easily walk 220 yards from his car to an elevator and was cracking jokes when he and Shepard were escorted to their cabin on September 26, 2012
