Glenna Duram's Parrot Gave Her Away for Murder

Elita “Gaby” Maldonado - Nevada

Elita “Gaby” Maldonado killed a man in May of 2014. After he paid her for sex she clobbered him with a 40 lbs dumbell and stabbed him almost 40 times. Gaby was a prostitute in the Vegas area, and had been arrested many times for prostitution and meth use. She has a history of mental problems and was often seen on her street corner talking to herself and rocking.

She hooked up with William Sanford and told him she was looking for her children and he agreed to help her find them. I guess he needed to have the sex first, or she did, Im not sure how that part went, but they went to his apartment to complete their transaction. The next part is up for debate too, depending upon which version you want to believe.

Gaby said she heard her childrens voices in her head telling her Sanford was hurting them. She hit him with the dumbbell and when he woke up, she attacked him with a knife. 
To save her children.
In her statement to police she said she told him she was hearing her childrens voices and he didnt seem to care and went to lay down. That pissed her off. After she hit him in the forehead with the dumbbell they started to fight and tussel, ending up in the kitchen where she got the knife, 

After killing him she cleaned up, took his car keys, cell phone and credit cards, and left in his 2003 Cadillac. She carried an empty box out to the car, the police say in an attempt to make her departure look normal. She drove around doing meth until she ran out of gas and then hopped a train going to Phoenix. Except it wasnt going to Phoenix, it went to Wyoming. She got to Wyoming and decided to steal and consequently crash a pizza delivery van. 
All the while, police in Las Vegas have found Sanford's body and identified Gaby as their suspect. 

Arrested and returned to Nevada, she called her sisters but told them she was being raped by Sanford and had merely protected herself. She told psychologists a whole other story.
Its clear this lady is bat shit crazy. She should be in a mental hospital, not a jail. Id be willing to bet if she had pricey insurance she would have been in a mental hospital long ago. Receiving treatment, on medication. Not taking lives and hearing voices.
Regardless, she has been convicted of first degree murder and will be sentenced soon.

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…
