How does an ordinary woman living on the outskirts of the southern-Slovak town of Komárno become a person charged with murdering three people? Alena Zsuzsová has always loved money, flirting, and bad boys.

Today, she is charged in connection to the murder of journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová, and also been charged with the murder of Laszló Basternák, a former mayor of Hurbanovo, a town near Komárno.
