American homicide. A corset salesman, he met bored housewife Ruth Snyder in June, 1925 and they began a passionate affair. Ruth took out insurance policies on her husband amounting to $90,000 with double indemnity, and shortly later, he began having a series of unusual accidents and illnesses. He had escapes from certain death that seemed almost miraculous.

The Snyders went to a party on Saturday night, 3/20/1927, Queens, NY. They came home with Albert quite drunk. Shortly after 3:00 AM on Sunday morning, Judd and Ruth killed Albert, a difficult and bloody affair. They tried to make it look like a burglary, an appallingly amateurish job. Investigators arrested the pair the same afternoon.

The trial began on 4/18/1927 with a guilty verdict brought in on 5/09/27. The pair were both electrocuted within four minutes of each other on 1/12/28, about 11:00 PM at the State Prison known as Sing, Sing, in Ossining, NY.
