A cable television show that focuses on the rare cases where women become murderers will be sending a crew to the Mankato area to interview people involved in the Jennifer Nibbe case.
A website describing the “Snapped” show on the Oxygen network says women are responsible for only about 7 percent of the 16,000 murders in the United States each year. The show has profiled dozens of those murders since it started in 2004.
A film crew hired by Jupiter Entertainment, the business that produces the show, will be traveling to Mankato next week to interview law enforcement officers who investigated the Aug. 31, 2011, murder of James Nibbe, 26, in Lake Crystal.
Nibbe’s wife, Jennifer Nibbe, was eventually arrested for the murder. Nibbe, now age 35, pleaded guilty in June to shooting her husband in the back of the head while he slept and attempting to blame the murder on an intruder.
