12 - 17 - 2013 Widow of murdered husband finds it hard to forgive
[DI] - Colleen LaFerrara will probably come face-to-face with Miranda and Elytte Barbour, the newlyweds who allegedly stabbed and strangled her husband, at their preliminary hearings on Friday, and the 32-year old widow has a message for the Selinsgrove couple. LaFerrara said Monday from her Port Trevorton home that “God forgives, and I don’t know if I’m that good of a Christian.” LaFerrara wants the public to know what kind of man Troy, her 42-year-old husband, was. The slaying became a national news story after the Barbours told police they were just “looking to kill someone, anyone.” She added that “Troy was a great man...He wouldn’t have hurt a fly.” On the night of Nov. 11, police allege that Miranda and Elytte Barbour met Troy LaFerrra at the Susquehanna Valley Mall in Hummels Wharf and lured him into Miranda Barbour’s red Honda CRV before making the trip to Sunbury.
