TN woman denies she's a Black Widow

Raynella Dossett Leath of Knoxville, TN, has lost not one, but two husbands. The first -- Ed Dossett, the local DA -- was apparently trampled to death by cattle back in 1992. The second -- David Leath, a barber -- was shot to death in their home in 2003.

But authorities now believe Raynella is responsible for both deaths -- something she strongly denies.

In the first man's death, authorities believe she overdosed him on morphine, then left his body in the field, where it could be trampled. (He had access to morphine because he was already dying of cancer.)

Hat Tip: Many thanks, Keith G in PV!
