Deadly Wives: Barbara Garcia poisoned her husband, Cipriano Garcia, with insulin to kill him so he could not take her off of his bank accounts, due to her gambling; Sentenced to 55 years in prison

From Barbara Garcia’s appeal: On October 30, 2003, Garcia and her husband, Cipriano Garcia (Cipriano), began arguing at their residence in Hobart. Cipriano eventually told Garcia that he was going to leave in the morning and remove her name from his bank accounts and that she would never receive another “dime” from him. Tr. p. 661. Garcia became afraid that, upon going to the bank, Cipriano would notice that she had withdrawn approximately $4,000 to give to Tammy, Garcia’s daughter and Cipriano’s stepdaughter.

Garcia prepared a cup of coffee for Cipriano, dissolving Klonopin and Artane in the beverage to cause him to fall asleep. After he drank the coffee and fell asleep, Garcia retrieved insulin that she had previously taken from Tammy, who is diabetic, and injected Cipriano with a lethal amount of the drug. Garcia—a Licensed Practical Nurse—intended to inject enough insulin into Cipriano to kill him because she did not want him to go to the bank the next day.

Once Cipriano was dead, Garcia tried to move his body by using a rug. While Garcia was dragging the body, Tammy entered the house. Garcia told Tammy that Cipriano had
died from a heart attack and that they needed to dispose of the body so that Garcia could still receive his retirement and social security checks. Tammy agreed to help, and the two women dragged the body into the garage. They were unable at that time to lift the body into the back of Garcia’s truck, however, so they went inside and watched television. The following day was Halloween, and after Garcia and Tammy handed out candy to the children in the neighborhood, they again attempted—and again failed—to lift the body into the truck. The following night, they again failed in moving the body. The following day, after going to a party, Garcia and Tammy finally succeeded in moving the body into the truck by using a blue tarp, a board, electrical cords, and another vehicle.

Garcia drove Cipriano’s body to a lake in Illinois, where she moved the body out of the truck and down the edge of a slope alongside the lake. Because it was beginning to rain
and the slope was becoming slippery, Garcia left the body halfway down the slope covered in a rug, a blue tarp, and electrical cords and tied to cinder blocks. Subsequently, a passerby discovered the body and notified police.
