While an Indiana woman serves a life sentence in jail for murdering her husband by injecting with a lethal dose of heroin, emerging details of her case revealed she may have served the victim’s remains to unsuspecting neighbors at a barbecue.
Last month, Kelly M. Cochran, 34, was sentenced to 65 years in prison last month after admitting to injecting her husband Jason Cochran and smothering him with a pillow. Cochran’s sentence did not alter her life much because she was already serving life for killing and dismembering a different former lover, Chris Regan, Indy Star reported.
Cochran’s chilling story will be featured in an upcoming documentary called “Dead North,” set to air on May 28 and 29 on Investigation Discovery. In the film, Cochran’s family told investigators she may have killed as many as nine people and scattered their bodies in different locations.
Additionally, her friends and family also detailed the disgusting rumor that Cochran allegedly cooked up Regan’s remains and served them at a BBQ.
Iron River Police Chief Laura Frizzo, who investigated Regan’s disappearance, said he and Cochran were having an affair.
After Jason Cochran was killed, his wife admitted that they both lured Regan to their home, where they shot and dismembered him. Cochran said she and her husband made a “pact” to “kill off anyone involved in their extramarital affairs.”
However, Cochran said she angrily killed her husband as revenge for murdering Regan, court documents stated. She was sentenced to life in prison in May 2017 for Regan’s murder and sentenced on April 18 for her husband’s slaying.
Investigation Discovery said in a statement that Cochran’s brother told investigators he feared his sister was a serial killer and neighbors said they believed they were served human remains at the barbecue.
“The toll of this case on Frizzo’s career (is) significant. Despite disagreements with the Iron River City Manager regarding her ‘bullheaded’ investigation style, Frizzo remains adamant that the case isn’t closed,” the news release stated. “The City Manager relieves Frizzo of her duties just as Kelly admits to having other ‘friends’ buried in Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and Minnesota; however, the identities and specific locations of these bodies remain a mystery to this day.”
