ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – One of Albuquerque’s worst workplace shootings will be featured in a new true crime TV show called “The Mind of a Murderer.” Karl Knapp is serving 76 years for murdering his ex-girlfriend and two others.

Knapp had been dating Jane Johnston for nearly three years. After their break-up police say he slashed her tires, rammed her car and threatened her life. Soon after Knapp stormed her work place and shot and killed Johnston. He then gunned down her boss and another man who were trying to protect her. Knapp shot himself but survived.
