Chesley Purcell was a repeat offender, hitwoman, and a prime suspect in ten nationwide murders, including that of of Janine McBride in New York City, and the assault of a police officer.
Purcell was offered a deal to serve 20 years in prison for the murder to avoid the death penalty, but she declined.
Just as she was about to be escorted back to Washington, D.C. as a witness in another case, she was shot to death by Ned Burks, another suspect in McBride's murder.
It is later revealed she was contracted out for the hit through Walter Boyce at Theodore Dawkins' request. She was hired to kill McBride to cover up allegations of sex discrimination, sexual harassment and political favors that led to Dawkins, who worked for the White House.
