Female killer clown who murdered her lovers wife faces death penalty

A woman who police say dressed up as a clown and killed her lovers wife now faces the death penalty.

Sheila Keen-Warren, 55, is accused of shooting Marlene Warren, 40, in the face in the front doorway of her Wellington, Florida in May 1990.

The last thing Marlene saw was Keen-Warren standing at her door wearing an orange wig, red bulb nose, and a painted-on smile, handing her flowers and balloons with one hand – and aiming a gun at her in the other, prosecutors say.

Authorities believe Keen-Warren was having an affair with Marlenes husband, Michael, at the time of the murder.

The two later married in 2002 after Michael was released from jail for financial crimes related to his used-car business where his alleged mistress worked.

They operated a popular fast-good restaurant in Kingsport, Tennessee for over a decade as the case remained unsolved.

Keen-Warren was arrested at her home in September 2017 after the FBI announced they found a hair in a car linked to the murder.

Authorities also said evidence includes hundreds of pages of interviews, photographs, and reports, but officials did not elaborate on the findings, according to CBS.
