American homicide; the killer of her husband with her accomplice, her lover Henry Gray, on 3/20/1927. She met Henry Gray and started a passionate extra-marital affair that culminated with the police finding her and her husband bound and gagged and her husband dead. She and Gray did an incredibly inept job of staging a supposed burglary and murder. An insurance investigation led to the arrest of Snyder and Gray on 4/25/1927. They were both prosecuted and sent to the electric chair 1/12/1928.
