    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.
    4 - 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.

Women Behind Bars: Lori McLuckie and Teresa Roever

The documentary series profiles women from all walks of life, from gang members to grandmothers, engineers and former police officers, who have been convicted of murder. With exclusive interviews with the inmates, direct from location in medium and maximum-security prisons, each woman tells her unique story about why she felt compelled to use violence as a solution or did she?

In a dramatic, point-counterpoint format, prosecutors and defense attorneys, police, and psychological experts give their differing views on the crime while the families of the victim and the inmate describe the gut-wrenching impact on their lives. Each episode is a compelling look into the lives of women who took the wrong turn at the wrong time, and ended up behind bars and are now paying the heavy consequences for their actions. The series also explores how the women have come to terms with their crimes while incarcerated and if and how they have turned their lives around.

On May 27th, 1988 Denver police entered the apartment of 27-year-old Lori McLuckie, and discovered the remains of 24-year-old Andrew Vigil, Lori’s ex-boyfriend. His arms and legs were missing, but his torso and head were in tact. He had been hit in the head repeatedly with a hammer and then stabbed in the back more than 30 times. Lori, then 5 months pregnant, lay sleeping in the other room. Police discovered Andrew’s remaining body parts in dumpsters in the surrounding neighborhood. Lori was sentenced to 40 years to life in prison.

38-year-old Teresa Roever was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of 67 year-old Cleo Lipkins. Lipkins, who lived in a trailer on Teresa’s property, was beaten and locked naked in a storage shed, where she froze to death. Teresa then cashed Cleo’s social security checks. Two co-defendants were also charged with first-degree murder but pled guilty to lesser charges. Teresa admits to forging the checks but denies participating in the murder.
