On April 7, 1987, Francis Newton murdered her husband Adrian, 23, and their two children, Alton, age 7, and Farrah, 21 months. She had plotted these murders for months even before leaving Adrian for someone else. In March, 1987, Francis took out a $50,000 life insurance policy on Adrian and her toddler daughter, Farrah. She already had a sizable policy on her son, Alton.

Under the guise of wishing to discuss their marital issues, Francis Newton visited Adrian in the apartment he shared with his brother, Sterling Newton. She asked Sterling to leave. He reluctantly did so an hour later. Francis shot Adrian in the head while he sat on the couch. She then put a bullet into each of her children’s chest in their beds where she had tucked them in a few hours earlier.

On April 21, 1987, Francis Newton filed insurance claims on the deaths of her husband and children. She was arrested that evening and charged with murder. During her trial, numerous family members testified as did friends, on Francis’ behavior and actions in the months leading up to the murders. The gun she used was placed in an abandoned house next door to another relative Francis spent the evening with after killing her family. This relative led police to the gun.
