…but this is taking it a little too far.

woman was sentenced to death Friday for murdering a fortuneteller and her college-age daughter after the soothsayer told her to get over a lost lover.Tanya Nelson, 45, of Roanoke Rapids, N.C., was sentenced for masterminding the stabbings of fortuneteller Ha “Jade” Smith, 52, and Anita Vo, 23, in 2005, Orange County prosecutors said.

Nelson hired fortuneteller Smith, known as Miss Ha in Orange County’s Vietnamese community, to get her ex-lover back. But when Smith told her to accept reality, she became upset and plotted to drive across the country to kill her, prosecutors said.

Smith and her daughter were stabbed as many as 10 times and their faces and hands were covered in white paint, which may have been an attempt to cover up evidence, prosecutors said.

Nelson lured her accomplice, Phillipe Zamora, 55, into the murder scheme by promising to fix him up with gay sex partners.
