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.).

  1. At first I thought she was guilty, but now I’m not so sure of her guilt anymore.

    • Read ALL of the transcripts. I have no doubt of her guilt.

      • I’ve read all the transcripts. I have no doubt she is innocent.

        • Well if she is “innocent”….she should still hang for sleeping through the screams of her sons being brutally stabbed and savagedly murdered…right next to her…..either way it goes she is right where she needs to be ….the appeals need to be gotten on with so she can hang for being “innocent” but an accomplish to double homicide by sleeping through the welps of her sons’ murder…
          I doubt they were being stabbed and silent about it…maybe one…but certainly not both of them…so…as previously stated…she is right where she needs to be on death row…most mothers (such as myself) would have been dead anyway defending my kids….DOWN WITH DARLIE …even if she is declared innocent of double murder…she should hang for being an accomplice as she slept through the murders of her two children (per her story) not waking until the “murderer” struck her….

          • Exactly. There’s no way someone would sleep through that chaos downstairs. She’s guilty and as soon as the DNA is done, so is Darlie.

  2. Textbook family annihilator, down to botched suicide attempt and the “it’s all about me” attitude. Everything out of her mouth, even when she is speaking about her sons, is actually about her! Very, very guilty!

  3. I agree, Alissa. Very narcissistic. Very guilty.

  4. Still awaiting the DNA results.
