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). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 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-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

Marie Odette Huckins murder 12/1/1979 Nicholville, NY *Dennis J. Mitchell convicted, sentenced to 20-years to life in prison*

On December 1, 1979, at approximately 10:00 P.M., defendant, using a friend’s car, left a bar in St. Regis Falls, New York, in the company of Marie Odette Huckins. At about 1:00 A.M. the following morning, defendant returned to the bar, covered with blood, screaming and crying that he had killed a woman. Although his friend and other patrons helped clean him up and alerted the State Police, they were unable to calm defendant who went to the nearby residence of a relative. From there he telephoned his mother telling her also what he had done. When the State trooper arrived and came into defendant’s presence, defendant immediately stated: “I’m Dennis Mitchell. I’m the one that killed the woman. She tried to roll me and I took a knife and started stabbing her.” When asked if the woman was dead, defendant replied that he had stabbed her at least 15 times. In response to further questioning he led the police to the scene and later to the area where he had discarded his knife. Defendant’s assigned counsel made no pretrial motions for discovery or suppression. Notice was furnished of defendant’s intention to rely upon the defense of mental disease or defect. However, during the third day of this nonjury trial, defendant informed his attorney that his oft-repeated story was fabricated, that a man he did not know and could not describe, other than very generally, had murdered Huckins, and that defendant dared not reveal this earlier for fear of reprisals against his wife and child. After his request for a continuance to investigate this version of the events was quite properly denied (see People v Messina, 73 A.D.2d 899), defendant’s counsel proceeded with his case as planned, using medical experts and testimony of defendant’s family in an attempt to prove the affirmative defense of extreme emotional disturbance. Defendant himself was not called to the stand. The court found defendant guilty of murder in the second degree and sentenced him to an indeterminate term of 20 years to life imprisonment.
