Brittany McKinney Killed an Old Man and Two Little Girls on New Years Day

GREENSBORO — The new year started on a deadly note, with an aggravated assault in Greensboro that left three people dead — two of them children.

Police identified the victims in the triple slaying as 61-year-old Jerry Griffin, 10-year-old Mkenzie Denise McKinney and 2-year-old Serenity Taliem Rose. All three were shot, according to Ron Glenn, a spokesman for the police department.

Brittany Christina McKinney, 28, of Greensboro is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths, police said in a news release. She is scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon.

Officers responded about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday to a welfare check in the 3600 block of Sweet Birch Drive in southeast Greensboro. A relative had contacted police to request the check, Glenn said.

Two victims were found dead at the scene, Glenn said, and a third victim was taken to a hospital, where that victim later died. Glenn would not say which victim was taken to the hospital.

McKinney is a relative of each of the victims, Glenn said, though police were not ready to release information about how she is related to them. Police also are not discussing a possible motive at this time.

Glenn also confirmed that Brittany McKinney lived at the residence, but declined to discuss whether the victims also lived there. White Pages lists a Jerry Griffin at 3627 Sweet Birch Drive.

Janson Silvers, a spokesman for Guilford County Schools, said Mkenzie Denise McKinney was enrolled as a student at Simkins Elementary and the district plans to have grief and crisis teams on site on Monday when students return to school.

It does not appear that anyone else was involved, Glenn said.

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

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

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
