'She's an entrepreneur. A homicidal entrepreneur.' Louise Peete was a convicted American murderer famous for becoming the second woman in history to be executed in the State of California. She was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of a wealthy mining engineer named Jacob C. Denton in 1920. Nineteen years later, however, she would be released from prison only to kill again. In a bizarre series of crimes, she would kill one of her benefactors, a social worker named Margaret Logan and be executed for committing that murder in April of 1947.
