Not Quite the Last Seduction

Thanks to Walter Satterthwait for the link.

Woman accused in plot like movie - Crime & Punishment - "ANCHORAGE, Alaska - In the 1994 movie “The Last Seduction,” a femme fatale coaxes her lover into killing her husband for money.

Prosecutors say a beautiful stripper obsessed with the film followed the script to its murderous end. Mechele Linehan, 34, is on trial on charges she masterminded the decade-old slaying of her fianc�in hopes of collecting $1 million in insurance.

Life and art were so similar, prosecutors say, that they even sought, unsuccessfully, to have the movie shown to the jury."
