Tammy Cole

Tammy Cole is led out of a Monroe County courtroom in May 2011 after being sentenced for the murder of Vance Evans. Cole will be eligible for supervised release in 30 years.

A documentary profiling the Tammy Cole murder case premieres Sunday on the Oxygen network.

The show, called “Snapped,” airs at 8 p.m. It includes interviews with prosecutors and Cole’s family.

Cole, now 49, is serving a life sentence for fatally shooting Vance Evans in April 2010, though she is eligible for release in 30 years. A judge also imposed a consecutive seven-year sentence for arson.

A Monroe County jury in March 2011 found Cole, of Illinois, executed her ex-boyfriend April 26, 2010, when he rejected her. She later kicked out a gas line to try to ignite his Tomah house to conceal evidence.

She testified the gun discharged by accident when they hugged.

Cole’s attorney argues she deserves a new trial because her trial attorneys were ineffective. The judge has not issued a ruling.

She does look like one of the manson murderers. She could have been a serial killer. Only she got caught this time.

Who knows she could have killed before and got away with it. And this time she got caught.

I hope tammy cole gets a slow painful lonely death in prison. I hope she wastes and rots there all alone. No friends or family to write to her. Die tammy. You twisted phycopathic killer.

Added I hope n pray she dies a lonely painful death. I hope its slow. She really should get death for what she did. Taking away a son, brother, friend, and a possible future husband from a kind loving good woman . These people were robbed from this phycopath. She is guilty. I wish I could see a gang if violent prison inmates beat her than shoot her then set her on fire. Eye for an eye.

OwI knew this crazy nut case since my childhood. She did it. She was violent then and I always knew she would end up in prison for something like this. But I never knew she was into men. She always acted like a boy. Looked like one too. I hated her then and I now hate her even more. And killed this great man who every one loved. Especially his girlfriend and family. I hope she rots to death in prison. I hope she gets daily beatings from the other inmates there. I hope they beat her to death. I hope when she dies in there its a l

She is a lying tramp. She shot him on purpose and should have been put to death.
