(Scroll down for video) A young couple pleaded guilty to murder, and said that they killed their victim for fun, prosecutors in Pennsylvania said.

The Northumberland County District Attorney’s Office said that
19-year-old Miranda Barbour, and her husband, 22-year-old Elytte Barbour, were accused of killing 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara.

LaFerrara was stabbed and strangled in his car after meeting the couple through a Craigslist advertisement. Police said that the couple wanted to kill someone together for fun.

They had been married for only three weeks at the time of the killing. Miranda Barbour claims that she killed at least 22 people in six years throughout the country.

Her claims have not been confirmed by investigators. The couple pleaded guilty in order to avoid the death penalty as part of a plea bargain agreement with prosecutors.
