Angela Marinucci Convicted of Torture Murder in Pennsylvania

Angela and Ricky

In 2010, when Angela Marinucci was 17 years old, she and a group of roommates tortured mentally disabled Jennifer Lee Daugherty for two days before killing her.  She was tied up, forced to consume feces, urine and detergent; beat with a towel rack, a vacuum cleaner hose, and a crutch, had her head shaved, face painted with nail polish, forced to write a fake suicide note, and then stabbed her to death.

Marinucci was only 17 at the time of the crime and unable to receive the death penalty but it does indeed, from her own confessions, seem that she was the ringleader in the gruesome death that ended with Jennifer wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper and dumped in a garbage can.

Angela Marinucci lived in the home with Jennifer, her boyfriend Ricky Smyrnes, 23, and friends Robert Loren Masters, Jr., age 36, Melvin Knight, 20, Peggy Darlene Miller, 27 and Amber Meidinger, 20. Angela felt that Jennifer and Ricky were spending too much time together and rallied her roommates to commit the horrific crimes.

Angela received life in prison but supporters have brought to light the fact that life sentences for criminals under 18 is forbidden in the state. She has appeals coming up with experts to say that she was young and is able to be rehabilitated and others to say the crime was too violent and she cannot. Time will tell.

The Most Beautiful Girls to Ever Kill Their Own Mother

As human beings, we have trouble fathoming the idea of a young girl committing so atrocious a crime as murder. Much less, the murder of her own mother. The concept becomes even more inconceivable when it pertains to a beautiful young woman beautiful young woman with a loving family and the world at her fingertips. These girls aren't all women in prison now. Some have been released and disappeared into the mainstream. Scary, huh?  Nakisha Waddell     At age 14, Nakisha Waddell stabbed her mother, Vaughne Thomas, 43 times in their Virginia home. In court, she said she was tired of the years of fighting and just exploded. Her 15-year-old friend, Annie Belcher, helped her dig a grave in the backyard. The pair poured alcohol and nail polish remover on the dead woman and tried to ignite her to no avail.  They eventually mixed a crude concrete mixture and poured it on top of her and finished by covering her with sticks, leaves, and yard debris. She gives no reason or excuse o

Tina Brown, Heather Lee, & 16 YO Britnee Miller Killed Over Teen Jealousy

The first thing I thought of when I found this lady, Tina Brown, was that old Texas case where that mom went ballistic and tried to hire a hitman to kill her daughter's cheerleading rival. Wanda -something -or -other was her name. My sister lives close to her still. This story is even more brutal, if you can believe that. Tina's 16-year-old daughter, Britnee was on and off besties with another gal in their Pensacola, Florida trailer park, Audreanna Zimmerman. Like many teen friendships, it ran hot and cold depending on the current drama in the trailer park. In March of 2010, it was frigid and it was all over a boy. Audreanna Zimmerman Police reports say Britnee complained to her mom, Tina, and a neighbor, 27-year-old, Heather Lee, about the ongoing arguments with Audreanna, already a mom of two at 19-years-old. The trio decided to find her and hem her up so Britnee could fight her. Things got out of hand, They found Audreanna walking along a dirt road. Tina Brown u

Darlie Routier Texas

I was contacted by a penpal of Darlie Routier's who gave me some of the most recent advances in her case to share with you all. I began writing to Darlie in December of 2005 and she is one woman whom I will never understand how she got behind bars. Really. You know what else? With all the information ALREADY out there about this case, in addition to the newly discovered info, I think if you can't see this poor woman's innocence, you may just be an asshole. So many legal flubs, so much question and police innuendo that turned out to be nothing. So many fingers pointed and road blocks thrown up, I am surprised this case isn't used in other countries to point to the clusterfuck we call a justice system.  I believe Darlie could have been released ages ago if the state had done the necessary DNA testing. Sadly, Texas has tried to stop it in every unconstitutional way they could pull out of a bull's ass. BUT- there is hope on the horizon. This from Camp Darlie
