Family by Proxy - Love, Marriage and Family in Women's Prison

Life in prison for women can be just as violent and deadly a place as it is for men. Women with life sentences know that prison is their home for the rest of their lives. Others will come and go, but they will remain. With this knowledge and ultimate acceptance, comes the need to nest, adjust, acclimate, and make the best of what is now their forever home. While male lifers go through the same process, women do it in an entirely domestic way. Males tend to become more isolated as years go by. Women do the opposite. They form families by proxy and each member fulfills a vital, and oddly colloquial, role within the family unit.
Women who have a life sentence to serve start out like everyone else. It is after the years accumulate that she begins to take a place of honor among other long-term inmates and the newbies quickly learn she is the one to respect. Some women take on this role with a firm hand and hard line. Others are more soft and motherly, keeping to themselves and imparting t…

Jennifer Morrissey Called Her Victim to Say She was on the Way to Kill Him

A 64-year-old man found shot to death in his home on the Delaware River last month was killed by a woman who'd lived there and manipulated the crime scene to make it look like a robbery, the Bucks County District Attorney alleged Friday.

Jennifer Lynn Morrissey, 33, is charged with criminal homicide, burglary, a gun charge and tampering evidence in the death of Michael McNew, a pharmaceutical manager.

Authorities found McNew dead in a chair in his River Road home Aug. 8, shot in the face, and a bullet casing on the floor nearby, the office said. He'd been killed two days prior and one of his registered guns was missing.

In a statement about the arrest, and court documents, the district attorney's office said they built a case against Morrissey through her cell phone and four confidential informants.

Morrissey and McNew had a prior relationship, but he'd ordered her to move out of his house.

A search of Morrissey's iPhone found user-deleted text messages that showe…

Sabrina Limon's Love Triangle

My dad was often involved in illegal activities and as a result we moved a lot during my childhood. Only once or twice were my brother and I ever at the same school for two consecutive years. One year in the late 70's, we lived in Portage, Indiana in a duplex. Our connecting neighbors changed several times in the year or so we lived there. The ones who stayed the longest were a couple, Zina and Dave. They buddied up with my parents and spent long nights drinking and playing cards. I remember Zina the clearest because Id never heard that name before and she had a huge dark gold Afro, bronze skin, and a loud laugh.

A few months into the friendship, I noticed things had cooled off a bit. No more card games late at night or bottle rockets in the yard. My dad was a notorious abuser and one night I awoke to him throwing my mom around the room. He was accusing her of being an accomplice to Zina, who had apparently been caught in a set-up trying to find a hit man to kill her husband. My m…

Pamela Moss Georgia Multi-Murderess

I write to Pam Moss often and included her in the Voices from Death Row book I wrote, which released in July. She is thought to have killed her husband and previously did time for killing her mother before she killed a man she was working for because she owed him money. You can learn more about in this post I wrote. She also wrote me an interesting letter on fellow inmate Kelly Gissendaner and her execution.

I received a letter from her in July. She talked about having recently gotten tablets in her pod. It made me think of all the letters and comments I get from people who do not think prisoners have WiFi access, or cable television. Not all prisons offer this to their inmates, but many do.  Some you can even have video visitations with. She says,
"We got tablets last year. Very limited WiFi -mostly on email. There are some free resources: semi-decent dictionary, and a good thesaurus. 15+ free ebooks. Most are titles that remind me of school summer reading lists. Some are good.…

Transgender Kryzie King Tortured a 4 YO boy to Death in Hells Kitchen

Kryzie King, a 29-year-old, transgender woman from Hell's Kitchen, tortured and starved her boyfriends 4-year-old son to death in 2013. She was angry she'd been left with the boy over the long Christmas holiday. She had plans to go to Jamaica and now those plans were ruined.

Little Myls Dobson had been removed from the custody of his mother, Ashlee Dobson, in 2012 for charges of neglect and abuse and had been living with his father, Okee Wade, a convicted rapist. Wade had left King in charge of Myls went he left the luxury high rise but was arrested for failure to appear in court on fraud charges and jailed unexpectedly, leaving King to care for the boy.

Over the course of 29 days she tortured him until he died on January 7th. She beat and burned him. She put him outside in several feet of snow for hours undressed. She tied him up and gagged him. Never once in the entire time did she feed him. He died of starvation and King called the police.

Wade swears from jail that he does…

Carol Coronado Killed Her Three Daughters

A South Bay California woman cried before a judge sentenced her to three life prison terms without the possibility of parole for killing her three daughters in 2014 in their home near Carson.

Carol Coronado, 32, shed tears as women’s health advocates pleaded with Compton Superior Court Judge Ricardo Ocampo to consider sending her to a mental health institution instead of a prison cell.

Acknowledging she needed help, Ocampo called the crimes against her children vicious, sophisticated and with vulnerable victims who trusted her, but said she could receive care while serving the rest of her life behind bars.

Ocampo’s order to send Coronado to prison as required by law followed last-
ditch efforts from Coronado’s attorney, her husband and women’s advocates to persuade him to change his mind.

During her trial in November 2015, Ocampo found Coronado guilty of three counts of first-degree murder with the special circumstances allegation that she committed multiple murders. The May 20, 2014…

Glenna Duram's Parrot Gave Her Away for Murder

WHITE CLOUD, Mich. (WOOD) — A jury has found a woman guilty in the murder of her husband who died in their Sand Lake-area home in 2015.

On Wednesday, 46-year-old Glenna Duram was found guilty of first-degree murder and a felony firearm charge in Newaygo County Court.

Martin Duram was shot five times and found dead in their Ensley Township home in May 2015. Glenna Duram survived a bullet wound to the head in what prosecutors said was a suicide attempt.

Family members said the couple’s pet, an African grey parrot named Bud, seemed to replay the murder by mimicking what sounds like an argument between a male and female.

In a video the family said it took several weeks after the incident, the bird says, “Don’t fucking shoot!”
