Desiray Strickland - Florida

Desiray Strickland will most certainly get the death penalty. Unless by some grace of God, her age saves her. She and three male friends hacked a classmate to death at the Homestead Jobs Corps center in Homestead, Florida. A fifth suspect is said to be arrested soon.

In June of 2015 the teen terrors lured young Jose Amaya Guardado into the woods where they mortally wounded him by repeated whacks, slices and stabs with a machete. He was then forced into a shallow grave, still breathing, and buried alive. 

Prosecutors plan to ask the judge next week to indict Desoray and her co-murderers, 18-year-old Jonathan Lucas, 19-year-old Christian Colon and 20-year-old Kaheem Arbelo on charges of first degree murder along with a whole slew of dismemberment and kidnapping type charges. 




So far, investigators think it all stemmed from a debt the victim owed Kaheem Arbelo, the alleged ringleader. The group has been identified as campus bullies at the state funded academy. Desiray and Kaheem Arbelo were a couple. 

When Jose didn't own up to his debt the group decided to kill him and plotted for two weeks. They dug a grave and came up with their plan. At one point, according to one of the suspects, Desiray walks off to pee. When she came back and realized she'd missed some of the carnage she complained. Desiray and Kaheem stayed behind in the woods after the killing to have sex. They have entered not guilty pleas. 

Jose's body was found three days later by his own brother, as his family desperately searched for their missing loved one.

I cant really think about this case without thinking of Christa Pike, here in my home state of Tennessee. She and a group also killed a girl in Job Corp, luring her into the woods.

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…
