About Karla Homolka

  • Karla Leanne Homolka (born May 4, 1970), also known as Leanne Teale, is a Canadian serial killer who, with her first husband Paul Bernardo, raped and murdered at least three minors.
  • She attracted worldwide media attention when she was convicted of manslaughter following a plea bargain in the 1991 and 1992 rape-murders of two Ontario teenage girls, Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French, as well as the rape and death of her sister Tammy.Homolka and Bernardo were arrested in 1993.
  • In 1995, Bernardo was convicted of the two teenagers' murders and received life in prison and a dangerous offender designation, the full maximum sentence allowed in Canada.
  • During the 1993 investigation, Homolka stated to investigators that Bernardo had abused her and that she had been an unwilling accomplice to the murders.
  • As a result, she struck a deal with prosecutors for a reduced prison sentence of 12 years in exchange for a guilty plea to the charge of manslaughter.
  • Homolka scored 5/40 on the Psychopathy Checklist, in contrast to Bernardo's 35/40.However, videotapes of the crimes surfaced after the plea bargain and demonstrated that she was a more active participant than she had claimed.
  • As a result, the deal that she had struck with prosecutors was dubbed in the Canadian press the "Deal with the Devil".
  • Public outrage about Homolka's plea deal continued until her high-profile release from prison in 2005.Following her release from prison, she settled in the province of Quebec, where she married again.
  • She briefly lived in the Antilles and Guadeloupe but by 2014 was back in Canada and living in Quebec.
