Elytte Barbour responded to the claims from his wife Miranda Barbour that she has killed at least 22 people as part of a satanic cult.

Barbour pleaded the Fifth when asked on Monday what he thought about the claim in the Pennsylvania court room he was in.

However, reporters asked him questions on his way into the hearing.

When asked if he thinks that his wife actually killed 22 people, Barbour said: “Who’s to say?” reported Eyewitness News.

Asked if he thinks that his wife is lying, Barbour said: “I didn’t say that.

Asked if he thinks she’s telling the truth, Barbour said: “Don’t put words in my mouth.”

Miranda Barbour told a Daily Item reporter that she killed at least 22 people and “less than 100” over the years as part of a wicked cult.

However, she emphasized that she only killed “bad people,” or people who abuse children or owe money.

Barbour is a co-defendant in the trial over the murder of Troy LeFerrara in November, and told investigators that he and his wife killed the man because they wanted to kill someone together, according to court papers cited by AP. 

The couple were married in North Carolina but the killings allegedly took place in Alaska, Texas, and California as well.
