The appearance in Northumberland County Court of Common Pleas was the first by Miranda Barbour, 19, since she began making controversial claims that she is a serial killer with at least 22 victims. Barbour and her husband, Elytte Barbour, 22, have pleaded not guilty to the stabbing and strangling in November of Troy LaFerrara, 42, whose body was found dumped in an alley in Sunbury. Prosecutors say the couple used the Craigslist classified ad website to lure him to a meeting, offering sex, in a shopping mall parking lot.
