Update: Christine McGee murder *Husband Jeffrey McGee convicted*

He will be sentenced March 30, 2010 and will receive a mandatory life in prison sentence. And I hope it is without the possibility of parole, just for what he did to his son, who was only 3 years old at the time. Jeffrey McGee strangled and stabbed to death his estranged wife in front of their son, due to jealousy and anger. He believed they were reconciling, but she had not planned to. I do understand being hurt by this, however, if he really loved his son, he would have taken a step back and thought about what he was doing. Now, he has ruined several lives and that can’t be taken back. And then he forced his son to have to relive it by having to testify in court about watching his mother being stabbed to death. In my opinion, this shows that he does not care about the well being of his son, only his own life matters to him. He should have known that this would backfire. Gavin is only 6 years old now, and it would break anyone’s heart watching him relive this. My heart really goes out to him and I hope he will find peace and happiness in his life.

Parents Gone Wild! Jorge Galvez thew his 3-week-old daughter at her crib

Yes, you heard me. A 3-week-old baby girl was thrown at her crib. Why you ask? Because she was crying. Imagine a baby crying. The wonder of it all. She died of blunt force trauma. After he threw her, he went to bed for 6 hours. Then got up and called police. And mind you, the mother, Sabrina Banda, was there and also did not call police. What kind of mother, no matter her age, just sits by and lets her child die? She did nothing. At this point, she is not facing charges. I hope that is changed. She is just as responsible. Oh, and did I forget to mention that the father, Jorge Galvez, is a member of a violent gang who has been arrested a few times. Yes, model father figure huh? And for those who want to sympathize with the parents because they are young, don’t. Being young does not mean you can be stupid or irresponsible. If he did not know that killing a baby is illegal and immoral, then he should not have become a father (yes, being in a gang does usually make you lose common sense). Did his parents throw their children when they cried? Maybe that would explain his stupidity.

Can anyone help with these true crime movies?

I am looking for the basis of these movies based on true crimes:

Moment of Truth: Abduction of Innocence
With a Vengeance
The Toolbox Murders (1978)
5 Dark Souls
Final Appeal
In the Shadow of a Killer
In My Daughter’s Name
Two Faces of Evil
Last House on the Left
A Kiss So Deadly

If you can help me, please email me! Thanks! Also, if you know of any other true crime movies that are not on this list and that I have not covered, give me a holler! I know I am missing a lot! (But not the very popular ones that Lifetime shows a lot – I know of those and am working on them).

Serial Killer Sundays on Crime & Investigation Network

The Krays by Fred Dinenage
UK Premiere only on Crime & Investigation Network
(Sky channel 533 / Sky HD channel 555 / Virgin channel 237)

Premier: Monday 15th March at 9pm
What kind of men were Ronnie and Reggie?
Brutal murdering gangsters or charitable gentlemen who helped the needy?

Legendary TV presenter Fred Dinenage is the official biographer to the most renowned gangsters in British history – the Kray Twins. In this extraordinary documentary Fred, for the first time, reveals the truth about his time with the Twins and their famously brutal lives.

News anchorman, nice guy and TV presenter Fred Dinenage shares his experiences while writing about the infamous Kray Twins and he meets the people who helped, supported and feared them. He even meets the one person they feared more than anyone, ‘Mad’ Frankie Fraser.

Fred met with the Krays during their sentences in Parkhurst and Broadmoor. He agreed to write the autobiography as truthfully as he could. For someone who had never experienced London gangster life, this was difficult.

Fred wrote the book with a unique and un-paralleled perspective of the gruesome and fearless twins that covers their childhood, their heyday and their demise.

Throughout the documentary, Fred gives his personal account of the Twins and how they felt about each stage of their lives. His anecdotes of his time with Ronnie and Reggie in prison are as fascinating as they are chilling. Fred explores the paradox that is the Twins: the brutal, murdering gangsters who regularly gave to charity and helped the needy when they asked for it.

Fred reveals the process of the biography when the Twins spoke of their feelings, their ideals and sometimes their regrets. We hear Fred read passages from the book he wrote with the gangsters… their story… in their own words.

“They were the best years of our lives. They called them the swinging sixties. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones were rulers of pop music, Carnaby Street ruled the fashion world… and me and my brother ruled London. We were f**king untouchable.”

They Krays by Fred Dinenage premiers on 14th March exclusively on Crime & Investigation Network.
