Ohio’s Donna Roberts death sentence was overturned. She is the states only female on death row. I have written to Donna but she refuses to write back.

But this book doesn’t allow that option. Ol ’ Rhonda had been one Klonopin away from total melt down her whole adult life. As a child and young adult she'd been a rodeo queen and state wide beauty pageant winner. She seemed to excel at everything she did. Police reports, rehab records and personal accounts abound of her erratic and downright weird actions and mannerisms throughout her adult life. She told anyone who would listen that her longtime boyfriend  and father of her son, Jimmy Joste was a devil worshipper who had, in collaboration with George W.
