Teresa Stone and Brother Love Made Love and Murder in Missouri

I was in Missouri last week filming an episode of Killer Affair to air on the OWN network . We discussed the case of Teresa Stone and her pastor Brother Love and their affair. It ended in the murder of Randy Stone, Teresa's husband. Teresa is now out of prison but Brother Love is still in with a life sentence. He had also planned to kill his own wife later. I had a wonderful time other than my phone being stolen at BNA Nashville and throwing me into a PTSD situation. I couldn't find my car to the hotel and got lost in Kansas City. The absolute worst fear I always have every single time I head out on these trips finally happened to me. People were so, so rude to me. NOTHING LIKE NASHVILLE. Everyone is nice in Nashville. I had a bad experience with the desk people at the very swanky K.C. hotel they put me up in. She was more interested in waiting on the drunk dudes at the next desk than a old lady in distress. I got a feeling I'll be writing about her one day. The film

Appeal for Donna Roberts Resumes - only woman on Ohio’s Death Row

Staff report from The Vindicator WARREN The complicated appeals history of Donna Roberts of Howland, 75, the only woman on Ohio’s death row, has resumed with a filing this week in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court asking for a new trial, a new sentencing hearing or for her conviction to be erased. Roberts and Nathaniel Jackson were both convicted in the 2001 murder of Roberts’ husband, Robert Fingerhut, in their Howland home. Roberts helped plan the murder in a series of letters and phone calls while Jackson was in prison on an unrelated case, and Jackson carried out the murder after being released from prison, prosecutors said. Roberts filed an amended petition in 2015 arguing the jury and grand jury pools in her case were underrepresented by black people. Roberts is white. Jackson is black. The petition also argued her attorneys were ineffective during her trial. The reason these arguments to Judge Ronald Rice of common pleas court are being renewed now is that Roberts filed

Catherine Goins Murdered for a New Born

Left, Catherine. Right, Natalie I had six kids. I was a rural mom with limited funds in my early days and even so, I have trouble relating to these stories of moms meeting up with complete strangers to get baby clothes or swings or cribs. They end up murdered by crazy women who can't have children. Or crazy women who want someone elses kid. This weird phenomenon is even more prevelent today, but still you hear about women doing this. Don't do this pregnant readers. Do not meet total strangers in the hopes of a good deal. Just go to Good Will or Dollar General. Try yard sales. If you must try your luck, take someone with you. Don't make it easy to become a victim. Catherine Goins was living a lie. She had told people she was pregnant but wasn't. It was getting close to time to fess up or come up with a newborn. Something happens to the minds of these women who pull this stunt. The women who claim to be pregnant but are not just to keep a man or to hold together som

FOR THE FIRST TIME, SHE TELLS HER STORY. I n Miami you could refuse to take drugs. You could refuse to associate with people who did them. But whatever you did, drugs would be a part of your life. However you make your money, you know at least some of it. has to be drug money because in Miami drugs just don't buy Rolexes and Mercedes and condos and automatic pistols. It buys everything. It's on the table when you settle up your bridge scores; it's in the collection plate when you go to church. —T.D.

Cheyanne Harris Ignored Her Baby Until He Died in His Infant Swing

The following case, suggested by Neva, a Woman Condemned Patron , may be to much for some people to handle. So be warned before you read on, this is disturbing stuff to deal with. Cheyanne Harris lived in Iowa with her two children in 2017. Also in the home was her on and off boyfriend (and baby daddy), Zachary Koehn. Here is his Facebook page . Neighbors and aquaintances in the neighborhood report he was a kind and generous guy who volunteered around his hometown until he began taking drugs. Take a look at that Facebook page. He has some really weird posts on the day Sterling died, and then also posts about losing custody of the daughter. A lot of random status updates unusual for a guy whos son died in his own filth. In August of 2017, police and emergency responders were called to the home when Cheyanne found her four month old son, Sterling, dead in his baby swing. It ook only a few seconds for them to realize something horrifying had happend to Sterling. Magnets squirmed fr
