The story of Marie Lafarge reads like a gothic novel. A well-bred, attractive woman living in a mansion in the country, married to a man she doesn't love, sounds like a tale we'd all like to read. And read, people did. Her case was one of the first trials to be followed by the public through newspapers. She was the first person to largely be convicted due to direct forensic and toxicology evidence.
