Thriller True Crime
At just 30 years old, with dark-blonde hair and freckles,
Barbara Weaver was as pretty as the women depicted on the
covers of her favorite "bonnet" stories - romance novels set
in Amish America. Barbara had everything she'd ever wanted:
five beautiful children, a home, her faith, and a husband
named Eli. But while Barbara was happy to live as the Amish
have for centuries - without modern conveniences, Eli was
tempted by technology: cell phones, the Internet, and
sexting. Online he called himself "Amish Stud" and found no
shortage of "English" women looking for love and sex. Twice
he left Barbara and their children, was shunned, begged for
forgiveness, and had been welcomed back to the church.
Barb Raber was raised Amish, but is now a Conservative
Mennonite. She drove Eli to appointments in her car, and she
gave him what he wanted when he wanted: a cell phone, a
laptop, rides to his favorite fishing and hunting places,
and, most importantly, sex. When Eli starts asking people to
kill his wife for him, Barb offers to help. One night, just
after Eli had hitched a ride with a group of men to go
fishing in the hours before dawn, Barb Raber entered the
Weaver house and shot Barbara Weaver in the chest at close
It was only the third murder in hundreds of years of Amish
life in America, and it fell to Edna Boyle, a young
assistant prosecutor to seek justice for Barbara Weaver.
