1958: Spree killer Charles Starkweather is captured by police following a high-speed chase in Wyoming. Starkweather murdered 11 people in Nebraska and Wyoming during a two-month road trip with his 14-year-old girlfriend, Caril Ann Fugate. The victims included Fugate's mother, stepfather and 2-year-old sister. Starkweather would plead not guilty, claiming insanity, but was sentenced to death and executed on June 25, 1959. Fugate, who has always maintained Starkweather had held her hostage, was sentenced to life in prison for her role in the murder spree, but was paroled in June 1976 after serving more than 17 years in prison.
