Rebecca I. Trevino Michigan

Rebecca I. Trevino has got herself into a whole heap of shit. There are very few details to be found but this case sounds like it could get interesting. It seems Rebecca shot her boyfriend on Thanksgiving, just a few weeks ago, at approximately 9 a.m. She ran to a neighbors house and told him what she had done but he had heard the shots and had called 911. She also told him she had been assaulted by him.

Police showed up at around 9:20 and he was dead on the scene. Witnesses report hearing five to six shots. They also told tales of constant domestic violence and fighting coming from the house recently. She was arrested. She's been charged with an open murder charge (?) which apparently includes first degree murder as well as two firearm felonies


Her boyfriend was former police reserve officer, James Gascoyne. The couple is from Saginaw, Michigan. The shooting took place inside Trevino's home at 2690 Ohio. St. in Bridgeport Township. The arrest warrant reports she used a .22-caliber rifle to shoot and kill Gascoyne. 


Trevino has domestic violence convictions in both 2001 and 2007 but in relation to another man. She also had a 2008 felony third-offense domestic violence charge that was dismissed. Gascoyne also had one prior domestic violence case that was dismissed. 


During arraignment for Trevino on Monday, Dec. 1, Saginaw County District Judge A.T. Frank entered a not guilty plea on her behalf. Despite her request that he release her on a personal recognizance bond, the judge ordered her held without bond.

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.

Kelly "Turtle" Tibbs and her Chick Posse

Anybody ever hear about Kelly Tibbs? I read about her case years ago and was recently contacted by a friend of hers. I got to thinking about her again. I cant really believe she didnt get the death penalty.

She was a lesbian ring leader in her little town. She and her teenage friends were a little crew of lesbians that hung together and lived together. None had a steady home, all were from broken families somehow torn by substance problems or abuse or just plain neglect.

Kelly was the leader. Her nickname "Turtle" was the name she went by exclusively and all her followers tatooed a tiny turtle on their hands. This group was so odd. They were PeterPans lost boys and Turtle was peter pan. They traveled in packs and found food and lodging when they could. Everything was a game and they frolicked around everywhere they went.

Eventually a new girl came into the mix and began a half-assed relationship with one of the other girls. Emotions flew and she got murdered. Beat to death. …

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…
