Marlene Johnson North Carolina

Marlene Johnson is one of those women who are so obsessed with their men they go to unusual lengths to stay in his life, even when hes long gone. Marlene was married to Ervin Johnson but they had separated. Ervin worked at Tuscaro Yarns, as did another woman 62-year-old Shirley Goodnight Pierce. For reasons not yet discovered, Marlene Johnson decided the two were having an affair and took it upon herself to start a one-woman campaign of hate against Pierce. She stalked her, harassed her, attacked her and made her life a living hell for years. Restraining orders were filed over and over. Marlene was ordered to stay away from Shirley's home and place of employment. There is no evidence that suggests Shirley was having an affair with Ervin. Her own private investigators reported there was no reason to believe they were sleeping together but still she believed it.

Johnson is accused of beating and stabbing Shirley
Goodnight Pierce at her Kannapolis home on the morning of July 23, 2013. Investigators say she broke into her home and beat and stabbed her to death. Her fiance found her body in the bath t ub. She was riddled with stab wounds, the knife still stuck in her neck.

Marlene was immediately suspected and was found with incriminating evidence. She was arrested only 12 hours after Shirley's body was found.

When she learned the death penalty was on the table, she flung herself off her bunk in an attempt to break her neck but received only cuts and bruises. Her case was scheduled for court this year but documents were filed in February to postpone it due to lack of county resources.

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…
