True crime fans, listen up: chilling series Snapped: Women Who Kill is coming back to UK screens in August.
The harrowing show, which is being re-aired after debuting in 2010, follows the lives of female criminals, looking at each of their cases in intricate detail to try and determine the resounding question: what was it that made these women snap? Why did they turn to murder and what drove them to kill?
Each episode profiles fascinating cases - including murders in which the female suspects have denied accusations.
From women who were motivated to kill in revenge against a cheating husband, to those who were plotting to cash in a hefty insurance claim, the sinister reasons behind each killing are explored through interviews, evidence and archive footage.
From socialites to secretaries, other women were motivated to kill after years of tormenting abuse from their partners.
Some of the women featured have committed some seriously dark crimes, such as Montana woman Anne Marie Stout, who was convicted for shooting her husband, Bill, in the head while he slept in 2007.
She was convicted at the Montana Supreme Court following a three-week trial in 2008, and sentenced to life in jail by Ravalli County District Judge Jeffrey Langton.
It is reported that Stout's husband was killed with his own gun, found in the garage of the house, as well as a latex glove with Stout's DNA on the inside.
A note in Stout's handwriting was also reported to have been discovered in her bedside table, featuring instructions on how to fire a pistol.
Prosecutors heard how the couple's marriage deteriorated after Bill had an affair. It is reported that the police found over 50 internet searches on how to murder and get away with it on Stout's computer.
You can catch Snapped: Women Who Kill every weekday evening from 3rd August at 5pm on Crime+Investigation.
