Jerinia Zsimcsa, Murdered Two Hungarian Husbands – 1899



EXCERPTS: Marie Csoran [and two others] … were on the street together one day when Mrs. Trifau Zsimcsa displayed a package of the white powder, declaring she was going to give it to her husband.

~ Another Double Crime. ~

Jerinia, widow of Trifun Zsimcsa, formerly widow of George Kie, is another that was charged with murdering two husbands. Poison was found in their stomachs, and besides she was proven to have openly boasted of her intention to kill Zsimcsa.
