But now the women, who share incredibly similar stories, couldn't imagine life without each other.
Sexually abused when they were young, the cellmates were both convicted of separate murder charges they say are wrong and are fighting to have their death penalties removed from their sentences.
Carr, 30, is the is the youngest woman in the United States on death row, while Cole, 33, is the third youngest.
'It's legal murder,' Cole told ABC News' 20/20 program during an interview with Diane Sawyer, which will air in-full on Friday.

'How many rich people go to prison?' Carr added.
'We're all minorities.
'We're all people who are either minorities or didn't have any, money - any way to say, ''Hey, let me buy my freedom'', because it's not free in this country.
'Unfortunately, equality is an illusion.'
Cole was 26 when she was found guilty of the kidnapping and first-degree murder of a Florida husband and wife.
Cole had lived next to them for years in South Carolina before moving to Jackonsville.
Cole and three men robbed the couple before tying them up, driving them across the border to Georgia and burying them alive.
The jury was shown photos of Cole and two co-defendants in a limousine, celebrating with champagne and handfuls of cash after the crime.
The jury voted 9 to 3 that she should receive the death penalty.

Cole claims she helped dig the grave but that she did not know it was for the victims.
She claims she thought the group were going to bury some of the items they had stolen.
'I am not the same person anymore,' Cole said. 
'I have peace, I have joy. I have a sound mind.'
Emilia Carr was sentenced to death by lethal injection in 2011 for the 2009 murder of Heather Strong.
Strong was the wife of Carr's boyfriend, and both were convicted of her suffocating her with a plastic bag and dumping the body in a Florida storage unit.
Carr was eight months pregnant at the time and now has four children, but is not allowed to see any of them.
