A woman in Pennsylvania, US, who along with her husband is facing death penalty for killing a man, has claimed she has killed at least 22 other people as a part of her involvement with a satanic cult.

Nineteen-year-old Miranda Barbour made the claims in an interview with a newspaper while in prison.

Miranda and Elytte Barbour are currently charged with killing 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara after meeting him online, the BBC reports.

As well as admitting that murder, she also claimed killing 22 others in a six-year killing spree around the US, as part of an involvement in a satanic cult that began in Alaska when she was 13.

The couple are accused of murdering LaFerrara after placing an ad in classifieds website Craigslist, offering companionship for money.

Police claim Barbour told investigators they committed the crime because they wanted to kill someone together.
