Lillie Stanton - Kentucky

--Right across state lines from me here in Tennessee, Lillie Stanton stabbed and killed her daughter and granddaughter in Winchester, Kentucky. She was afraid the child's father would be coming around more and that killing them was the best option.

In the citation, she told police that she thought about taking 23-year-old Danel Korrey Stanton and 22-month-old Kaydence Ray Miers out of state, but did not have the money. She said she thought “killing them was the best thing to do,” according to the citation.

Winchester police Capt. James Hall said Tuesday that Stanton is accused of killing Danel Korrey Stanton, 23, and her 22-month-old daughter, Kaydence Ray Miers, who were found stabbed to death in the home they shared with Lillie.

Danel had been in an ongoing custody battle with the child's father, Jonathon Miers.


Valerie Stensen- Tennessee

Death is on the table for another woman from my home state, Tennessee.

Valerie Stensen is accused of the sexual abuse, torture and murder of her two year old granddaughter, Manhattan.

 The strange part, I thought, was that police records state Valerie caused "serious bodily injury to the child along with subjecting her to the use of a deadly weapon or a controlled substance'.

 Isn't that the weirdest turn of phrase?

 What a weird either/or sentence.

 One of the child abuse indictments alleges that on April 15, 2011, Stenson treated the toddler in such a manner to cause "serious bodily injury.'' Then, over the next two days, Stenson allegedly caused serious injuries to the child "through the use of a deadly weapon, dangerous instrumentality or a controlled substance," according to another indictment.

 Since Valerie is about to face the death penalty prosecutors are now discussing whether her case encompasses certain required elements. "Some of the factors include whether two or more persons or endangered, whether the person was endangered during the course of the homicide, the age of the victim,"District Attorney General Dave Clark said.

 Currently there's just one woman on Tennessee's death row. Christa Pike was convicted of first degree murder and sent to death row in 1996.


Susan Eubanks California Death Row

On October 26, 1997, Susan Eubanks of San Marcos California shot her four sons, ranging in age from 4 – 14, in the head. She turned the gun on herself, shooting herself in the stomach. Her 5-year-old nephew remained in the house, unharmed.

Susan spent the day drinking and taking valium with her boyfriend. They fought and she slashed 2 tires on his car. Dodson gathered his possession and as he was leaving Eric Eubanks showed up. They left together in Eric’s car. Dodson told Eubanks as they were driving that Susan had said she was going to shoot the boys and herself. They went to the North Bar, where they spent several hours.
Th evening at the bar, Eric Eubanks received a page, alerting him to a voice-mail message. He listened to it, and called 911. His estranged wife had recorded two words on his telephone answering machine: “Say goodbye.” Brandon was shot in the living room as he watched TV; the others were in their bedroom, on a bunk bed, playing Nintendo.

Five days after the murders, Susan was charged with four counts of first degree murder. During her trial there were allegations of child abuse and talk of revenge against her ex-husband prior to the murders. After being convicted of four counts of first degree murder, Susan Eubanks was sentenced to the death penalty. At her sentencing a month later, she said she loved her children but felt they would be better off dead. She said she killed her boys as a final act of love in what was an attempted murder-suicide. Factors that influenced her actions, she said at the sentencing, included alcoholic parents, her depression and poor mental-health treatment.

She was sent to Central California’s Women’s facility where she awaits her execution on death row Markers in the local cemetery are organized with. A Eubanks” is on the left, “B Eubanks” in the middle, then “M Eubanks.” Austin was 7, Brigham, 6, and Matthew, 4. Their half brother, Brandon Armstrong, 14, also killed by their mother, is buried in Texas and memorialized with a headstone there.The house where the murders happened was torched by firefighters in a training exercise.

Eric Eubanks has never publicly spoken about the slayings. He wasn't in the courtroom when the jury read the verdict at the 1999 trial of the boys’ mother, Susan Dianne Eubanks.

Dorice Moore- Florida

Dorice "Dee Dee" Moore apparently did not kill her friend, Abraham Shakespeare, a lottery winner millions of times over. She did not swindle him out of his millions. She did not bury him in her backyard either. She says she was trying to help him protect his fortune from an upcoming child support case. Drug dealers must have killed him (and buried him in her yard under a concrete slab). Hmmm…
Winning the lottery was actually the worst thing that ever happened to poor Abraham, who had no happy life to begin with. So bad was it that E! did a television program about it entitled Curse of the Lottery. Illiterate, poor and often incarcerated, he was the last person to expect a winning lottery ticket.
Dorice Donegan "Dee-Dee" Moore launched a business with Shakespeare, Abraham Shakespeare LLC, giving herself control of the firm's funds. Moore subsequently withdrew $1 million and bought herself a Hummer, a Chevrolet Corvette and a truck before going on vacation. She later claimed that the money was a gift from Shakespeare who himself had bought only a home, a car and a Rolex from a pawn shop since he’d had the millions.
On November 9, 2009, Shakespeare's family reported him missing, stating that they had not seen him since April of that year. Family and friends had originally hoped that he had taken his money and was living on a beach in the Caribbean Sea. A tip-off led investigators to the backyard of Moore's boyfriend Shar Krasniqi, where Shakespeare's body was found buried in five feet of dirt under a newly constructed concrete slab. Shakespeare was 43.
Moore offered the mother of a son of Shakespeare's, a $200,000 home if she would lie to detectives and tell them she had seen him recently. She also paid a relative of Shakespeare's, $5,000, to give his mother a birthday card, implying it was from him.
She did not testify in her own behalf. Monday, the judge removed from the courtroom a woman sitting in the audience for possibly threatening jury members.  10 News has learned the woman was Moore's former cellmate in jail, Rose Candora.


Antoinette Frank and Rogers Lacaze

So very much hype surrounds the case of Rogers Lacaze, the man who was with Antoinette Frank when she robbed and killed the owners of the restaurant she was supposed to be guarding in her official capacity as a police woman.

His supporters have various claims they attest point to his innocence, such as, an untested hair at the crime scene, missing trial transcripts and the fact that Adam Frank (Antoinettes brother) was arrested shortly after the murder with the gun that was involved in the crimes.

What no one on the Lacaze team mentions is the witness. The very same witness that was able to testify that Antionette Frank was in the room can also indicate the presence of Lacaze.

Both Frank and Lacaze have tried repeatedly to have their sentences reduced to no avail.

Angelina O’Mara

Angelina O’Mara killed her husband and her boyfriend days apart by shooting them in the head.  She put a pillow over each man’s face as he lay resting and pulled the trigger. She killed her ex-husband James O’Mara in Minnesota and then traveled to Wisconsin where she killed her long time boyfriend, Michael Pies, in a motel room.
For months before and during trial she claimed her boyfriend had been the one to kill her husband and for a time it seemed that may be the fact. Then, suddenly, she gave up her pleas of innocence and submitted a plea of guilty, saying she had killed him. She has given no reason as to why she killed him.
She says that killing her boyfriend was an accident. They were arguing and struggled over a rifle that went off. She does say that he had been violent and abusive to her many times in their long years together.
She goes to court Dec 2 for the murder of her husband and then on to another state and another murder trial.
