Stories to Watch

Not every story makes it to Jodi Aria media heights but there are many that are just as strange and interesting. Here are some Ive been keeping my eye on:

Jessica Paige Greenback, 25, from Santa Clarita California shot and killed her brother with a semi-automatic handgun, wounded her father and attempted to kill another man in the house earlier this year. She was arrested and plead not guilty last week. She has had a history of mental issues and several 72 hour stays in mental hospitals. Reports say she kept her 5 year old sister in the room during the shooting and would not allow her to leave. She  is being held on $6.1 million bail, is scheduled to return to court on Feb. 26 to get a preliminary hearing date. If convicted as charged, Greenback faces a possible maximum sentence of life in state prison.

Un Young Lee, of San Dimas California was arrested last week for killing her mother-in-law, Young Ja Lee 77. Young's house was burning down but when police and firefighters arrived, no one was inside and there was no evidence of how it started. They soon received an anonymous phone call, however, that stated Un had a hand in her mother-in-laws. death. Police found her sitting in her minivan on a street with bags of body parts with her. She has a 1 million dollar bond and arraignment set for April 24th.

Jessica Lacy McCarty is the FLorida mom who has killed all three of her kids. I think a lot of people are watching this one right now and it will last a while. Shes had mental issues in the past and its still unclear if she was being treated at the time of the murders. POlice arrived to find her standing in the yard bleeding with a knife in her hands. Still so much unclear.

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…
