Sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his wife, James Barnes had already spent 8 years behind bars when he became a practicing Muslim. During the month of Ramadan, he called in homicide detectives, and confessed in all detail to a previous murder of a woman. He is the ultimate nightmare for women: he broke into the apartment of a young woman, naked. For hours he hid naked in her apartment and watched her watching TV and taking a shower. His intention was to rape and kill her. He failed to strangulate her and subsequently killed her with a hammer. Then he set the bed with the victim on fire.
