A&E recalls how two murderous teens made history in American Justice: Spree Killers. Charles Starkweather was a slow learner. He had trouble holding down a steady job and used his fists to communicate. Everyone avoided him, except for Caril Ann Fugate. They began dating when she was only 12 and Starkweather thought they would eventually get married. But, her family disagreed. With their angry dismissal and the loss of yet another job as a garbage man, Starkweather was at his wits' end. That's when he decided that being on the run was better than going nowhere. In December of 1957, Starkweather began a killing spree that would result in the deaths of ten people, including Fugate's parents and half-sister. By randomly assassinating people along a three state journey, the two lovers became the first young mass murderers. They were eventually caught due to a series of stupid mistakes and immediately began to turn on each other. Fugate claimed she was being held hostage and Starkweather blamed her for half the killings. When it was all over, he received the death sentence and she went to prison for 18 years. Starkweather's good looks and brooding temperament made him the perfect subject for Hollywood and two movies were made telling his story. Ironically, the man who sought the spotlight through death would never live to witness his eventual infamy. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
