Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History takes a look at 14 women who didn’t stop at one murder, or two, or three … Fourteen serial killers throughout history.

On Monday night’s show, which airs just after Fatal Attraction, a South Side, Chicago, mother makes a grisly discovery when she finds her missing daughter in a garbage can at a semi-abandoned building.
