    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

Deadly Wives: Verina Marie Childs killed her husband, Douglas Childs, during a hunting trip

Douglas ChildsFrom Verina Childs appeal: Verina and Doug Childs were members of a hunting club in Oktibbeha County, Mississippi.  On November 22, 2009, just after daybreak, Danny Fly, a local hunter, noticed Doug Childs’s body lying in the edge of the woods. Fly had seen Doug’s truck earlier that morning but had heard no gunshot prior to finding the body.  Doug had received a single gunshot wound to the left side of his upper back. The projectile was fired by a Marlin 30/30 (“30/30”) hunting rifle that belonged to Verina.

Verina and Doug had left home just before daybreak to go hunting. Verina was carrying her 30/30, and shortly after arriving in the woods, she and Doug separated.  Verina later told the investigator that she had a stomach ache, so she sent Doug a text stating that she was going back to the house.  After using the restroom at home, she unloaded her rifle, removed her hunting clothes, and sent Doug a text stating that she was going to clean around the house.  Shortly thereafter, Tina Reed pounded on the door and asked Verina to come with her.  They went to the shooting scene and saw Doug’s body lying on the ground.

Deputy Commander Mahyar Netadj, following Verina’s consent to search, collected the rifle and several pieces of clothing from the house. Verina told Netadj that she had never fired the rifle but had unloaded it because she did not like to keep loaded guns in the house.  However, the other guns in the house all were loaded.   Lying next to the 30/30 was a gun-cleaning kit.

Deadly Duo: Eli Weaver and Barbara Raber killed Eli’s wife, Barbara Weaver

dvawareness3On the morning of June 2, 2009, a neighbor discovered Barbara Weaver lying on her bed with a gunshot wound to her chest. The neighbor went to check on Weaver after one of Weaver’s young children came to her and told her that he had found his mother dead in her bed. Medical assistance arrived shortly thereafter, and the Wayne County coroner pronounced Weaver deceased later that morning. The coroner estimated that Weaver died sometime between midnight and six o’clock in the morning on June 2, 2009. It was later determined that Weaver died from a single gunshot wound fired at close range from a .410-gauge shotgun.

{¶ 3} Eli Weaver, Barbara Weaver’s husband and the father of their five children, received a phone call about his wife while on a fishing trip to Lake Erie. Eli had left the Weaver home at approximately 3:00 a.m. that morning. Eli spoke with police when he returned home and initially denied any involvement in his wife’s death. He later admitted, however, that he and his girlfriend, Raber,
[189 Ohio App.3d 401] had planned Barbara Weaver’s murder and Raber committed the murder with his assistance.

{¶ 4} Eli and Raber began a personal relationship several years earlier, after the two met through Raber’s husband. Eli and his family were members of the Amish community when he and Raber began their relationship, but Eli twice left the community after being shunned for his behavior. Eli had several affairs and met women online through the use of a cellular phone that he received from Raber. When the two began discussing the murder of Barbara Weaver, they sent numerous text messages to each other setting out their plan. Police obtained the text messages during their investigation.

{¶ 5} On June 10, 2009, officers from the Wayne County sheriff’s office came to Raber’s home to arrest her for Weaver’s murder. After officers arrested Raber, they drove her to the sheriff’s office and interrogated her. Raber confessed to Weaver’s murder during the interrogation but refused to complete a written statement. Raber spent the night in jail, and officers questioned her again the next day about several details of her confession. Raber eventually asserted her right to counsel and ended the interrogation.
