Heather Leavell-Keaton Fed her Tiny Step-children Antifreeze and Dumped Them in the Woods

Heather Leavell-Keaton is an Alabama woman, the first from Mobile County, who was sentenced to death in August of 2015, for the murder, torture and abuse of the corpses of her two step-children in 2010.  The children's father, John DeBlase, received the same sentence.

By her own admission we know she was hardily covetous of the two children, Natalie, 5 and Chase, 3. Natalie was a particular thorn in her side because of the way family members treated her. She was loved by her extended family and they showed it. Heather hated how Natalie was treated like a princess while she was ignored.

The couple spent months, perhaps years abusing and torturing the kids. Burning them with cigarettes, binding them with duct tape and shoving them in suitcases, closets and crawl spaces for 10 - 12 hours at a time. They also bound them to broom handles and forced them to stand in a corner of the room for hour upon hour.

Authorities believe Heather killed both children. She has experimented with antifreeze on a dog until it died. She started to put antifreeze n the kids food regularly but when it failed to work she took more drastic measures.

After spending more than 10 hours duct taped in a suitcase, Natalie was removed and strangled to death. Her tiny body was dumped partially clothed in a remote area. Several months later they realized that Chase was becoming a serious liability. He would cry and ask about his sisters whereabouts. It was when he began to do it in public that they killed him too. Police have said he was tied to a broomstick for several hours before being strangled and dumped deep in the woods wearing only a diaper.

Heather admitted to an inmate that she had done all of the killing but her boyfriend was all for it. I take this information with a grain of salt. We all know what can happen when inmate testimony is part of the prosecution. It's unreliable, it's often fabricated either by the police or the inmate, and it is always questionable.

They both received a death sentence in August of 2015 for the 2010 murders. The children's mother, Corrine Heathcock DeBlase survives them. Heather admitted to the murders. Her defense was only to achieve a life sentence, she offered no excuses for her murderous acts. Her attorney's have said she has devoted her life to her Lord and spends her time alone, studying religion. John is still denying his guilt.

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…
