Marianne Bordt, 73, Facing Florida Death Sentence

Marianne Bordt, 73, drowned her 5 year old grandson, Camden Hiers, in a Florida beach house bathroom in 2010 and could face execution. Her attorneys say she was legally insane before and at the time of the incident. 

Granted, a death sentence is unlikely for someone of her age with no previous criminal record but there is a chance nonetheless. Since Ms. Bordt is a German, Germany has become interested in the case. The country has no death penalty.

The initial hearing is scheduled for Friday but very well may end in no trial at all, only a settlement from some sort of plea deal. However, David Hiers, the boys father and Bordt's former son-in-law is pushing for a trial. He feels that is the only way he will find out the details of the boys death.

Heirs divorced Bordt's daughter about 3 years ago and says her claims of insanity are just that, insane. He claims to have never distrusted her and says he never saw any signs of insanity in her in all the years he knew her.

Bordt and her husband, German citizens, brought the boy to Florida each year on vacation. This year something went terribly wrong. Bordt's husband claims that he went to the store and came back to the rented beach house to find his wife sopping wet from the waist down in a red jacket and long underwear.

She said she drowned the child so he would not grow up in a divorced home.

Her defense is being prepared and will include a skull injury she suffered at age 5 in a Soviet air raid on Breslau, Germany, in 1944 where she saw her father killed.

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
