Will Convicted Child-Killer Debra Milke Win New Trial? We're Betting She Will - Phoenix News - Valley Fever

This whole situation with Debra Mile is exactly the type of thing I’m always bitching about. Why do you think I stand up here on my soap box all day pissing and moaning?

Debra was a single mom almost two decades ago. She took help where and when she could get it, like so many other single moms have to do.

She had a roommate that offered to take her kid to see Santa at the local mall. Instead he took him out to the desert and killed him.

Fast forward to when she reports her son missing.

Phoenix police detective Armando Saldate takes her into an interrogation room, comes out hours later saying she confessed to the murder. No tape, no other officers present, nothing.

She is convicted on it. No I’m not shitting you.

She has been sitting in death row for two decades now waiting for a new trial. Let’s hope she gets it. We owe her at least that.
