American homicide who, prior to her murder conviction, had forged checks as well as drugged and robbed old folks that she had met in bars. A psychological probation report done in 1978 named her as a chronic schizophrenic, deeply disturbed.

Police began digging at Montalvo's house and found the first body on 11/11/1988, finding seven by 11/14/1988. At her trial in 1990 she was accused of poisoning nine people from 1982-1988 for Social Security and government benefits, seven of her victims were also her tenants. She was found guilty, on 8/26/1993, of murder at Monterey, CA and imprisoned.
