Actress Kaya Rose Scodelario plays Ted Bundy’s wife Carole Ann Boone in Netflix’s Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile which is now available for streaming.
Carole Ann Boone was Bundy’s wife from 1979 to 1986.
In the movie, Bundy, serving as his own lawyer during the Chi Omega trial, takes advantage of a Florida law which makes any marriage declaration in a court of law before a judge valid. He proposes to Boone during the 1979 Chi Omega trial, which focused on Bundy’s murder of girls in the Chi Omega sorority house at the Florida State University, and she accepts.
However, in real life, the marriage proposal actually happened during the Kimberly Leach trial in 1980 for Bundy’s murder of a 12-year-old girl.
