SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) - Police say two young Pennsylvania newlyweds lured a man to his death with a Craigslist ad because they wanted to kill someone together.

Sunbury police say 22-year-old Elytte (EL'-ee-ott) Barbour was charged Friday night in the death of 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara. Barbour's 18-year-old wife Miranda was charged Wednesday.

Investigators say the Elytte Barbour told police the couple planned the killing. He previously told The Daily Item of Sunbury his wife acted in self-defense when LaFerrara groped her after hiring her as a "companion."

Authorities say the Selinsgrove couple picked up LaFerrara on Nov. 11, three weeks after they got married. Elytte Barbour allegedly choked LaFerrara with a cord while Miranda Barbour stabbed him. LaFerrara's body was found in an alley.

The Barbours had recently moved from North Carolina. Sunbury is about 100 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
