Killer Stripper : the True Story of Cherrylle Dell
Cherrylle Dell got married when she was just seventeen years old, to a man two years her senior named Scott. The relationship was strained from the start, but the couple managed to make it work for more than two decades before they finally separated in 1992.In 1995, when Scott Dell's body was found in his farmhouse outside of Killaloe, Ontario, police initially determined that it was a suicide. The depression was to blame - he'd been struggling with the separation from his wife of twenty years, and had been diagnosed with cancer. On the night of December 29th, Scott consumed a lethal dose of wine laced with antifreeze, and no one thought anything more of it.But only two years later, Cherrylle Dell was charged with her estranged husband's death. By January of 2001, Cherrylle had failed to convince the judge of her innocence, and had been convicted of first-degree murder - facing a long sentence of life in prison.And that wasn't the end for Cherrylle. In April 2001, the ex-stripper stood trial again for first-degree murder - this time, though, the charges were in connection with a fire in August 1997 that had claimed the life of her past love, Nancy Fillmore.
