Everything you need to know about Boardelais’ wife, Karla Homolka
Karla Homolka was born on May 4, 1970 in Ontario, Canada. Her father, Karel Homolka, was a traveling salesman, while her mother, Dorothy Seger, was an employee at a geriatric clinic. She is the eldest daughter; Lori and Tammy are the perpetrator’s younger sisters. Sadly, Tammy was murdered in 1990 at the hands of her own sister.
Growing up, Homolka had a very unstable family life. Her father was a chronic alcoholic who regularly insulted his wife and daughters. In addition, there would be regular fights in the house, making it more difficult to survive or feel safe. This resulted in Karla having depressive episodes in high school.
However, as Karla grew older, the infamous killer fought through this to some extent. After graduating in 1988, she worked as a full-time veterinary technician at Thorold Veterinary Clinic.
The Story of ‘Ken and Barbie Serial Killers’
‘Ken and Barbie Serial Killers’ is the name given to Karla and her former literal partner in crime, Paul Bernardo. Bernardo, better known as ‘The Scarborough Rapist’ or ‘The Schoolgirl Killer’ met Homolka when the girl was 17 years old. She immediately fell for him and the two started dating in 1990.
Paul was no ordinary loving boyfriend. He was in complete control of Karla’s life, making mean comments about her body, how she dressed, and even the things she ate. However, the relationship did not end. Karla completely submitted to him for almost 4 years and helped him rape and kill 3 innocent girls including her sister.
In addition, the two are responsible for the rape of 4 minors and the death of 3. Tammy Homolka, Leslie Erin Mahaffy and Kristen French were murdered at the hands of Karla and Paul; the girls were heavily sedated, raped and murdered. In fact, they videotaped it all as a souvenir.
Homolka testified against Bernardo and received a reduced sentence
In 1993, 52-year-old Homolka testified against her ex-husband, Paul Bernardo.
Before that, however, she pleaded for full immunity in exchange for her cooperation and honesty, but she was refused. Instead, she was given two options; either testify against her partner and face a 12-year prison sentence, or be fully charged with manslaughter and rape. So she chose the first option and spent 12 years in Kingston’s Prison for Women, Ontario.
