Monsters Among Us: Terebea Williams was convicted of carjacking, kidnapping and killing Kevin “John” Ruska Jr.; Sentenced to 84 years to life in prison; *Released from prison after19 years (not 84) due to Coronavirus – JUSTICE DENIED for the victim and his family*


Kevin “John” Ruska Jr

This is outrageous! She was sentenced to 84 years to life in prison, meaning that she was supposed to serve 84 years before being able to apply for parole. Personally, I do not believe that any violent inmate should be released due to COVID19. Especially killers. They forfeited the right to get any special consideration. This killer already had her habeas corpus denied, so this should not have even been a consideration. I feel so horrible for Kevin “John” Ruska Jr. family. They are not taking it well, and I wouldn’t either.

Psycho For Love: Donald Bohana killed girlfriend, Delores “Dee Dee” Jackson, when she refused to get money from the Jackson Family to help him out of bankruptcy

From Bohana’s appeal: In 1994 appellant was dating Delores Jackson. On the night of August 26, 1994, Jackson arrived at appellant’s house for a late dinner. At 3:34 a.m. on August 27, appellant called 911 to report that “someone fell in my pool” and was “drowning.” Paramedics arrived at the house seven or eight minutes later and found appellant kneeling near Jackson. They were both nude. Jackson was lying on her back, with her head and neck propped up against a tree several yards away from the pool. She was not breathing and had no heart beat. Although the area underneath Jackson was wet, her skin was dry and cool to the touch, and her long hair was damp rather than wet. Jackson expelled a large amount of water and alcohol when a paramedic administered the first CPR compression. This indicated to the paramedic that no prior attempts had been made to resuscitate Jackson.

Paramedics remained at appellant’s house for about 30 minutes as they attempted, unsuccessfully, to revive Jackson. During this period, appellant went into the house to dress. He made at least two telephone calls before the ambulance left to take Jackson to the hospital. One of the paramedics testified that appellant had a “lost” expression on his face, appeared to be in a state of disbelief about what had happened, and seemed concerned about Jackson. Two others described appellant as nonchalant and unemotional.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies arrived at appellant’s home about 4:05 a.m. One deputy opined that appellant was drunk and described his demeanor as “belligerent and uncooperative.” Another testified that appellant did not appear to be intoxicated and that he was “dazed” and “withdrawn.” Appellant would not answer questions posed by the deputies but made telephone calls to family members during which he appeared to have no difficulty communicating.

About 7:45 a.m., appellant described the events preceding Jackson’s death to homicide detective David Watkins. According to appellant, Jackson arrived at his home about 10:30 p.m. They drank alcohol, talked, listened to music and danced for some time before disrobing and getting into the jacuzzi. They spent somewhere between 20 to 40 minutes in the jacuzzi and then swam to the deep end of appellant’s backyard swimming pool. Appellant eventually got out of the water and sat at a table while Jackson continued swimming. [84 Cal. App. 4th 365]

After Jackson swam to the deep end of the pool, she touched the pool light and turned to swim back toward the jacuzzi. Appellant noticed that Jackson was struggling under the water. He dove in to help her but she resisted. He was not able to bring her to the surface. Appellant got out of the water and retrieved a pool pole. He extended the pole to Jackson, so she could grab it. She did not. Appellant realized the pole was too short and dropped it in the water. He got another, longer pole with a leaf net attached to the end. Appellant tried to get Jackson to grab this pole, but she did not. At this point, appellant called 911. After giving his address, he ran back outside.

Appellant noticed that Jackson was no longer moving and was motionless at the bottom of the pool. He dove in again, put his hands underneath her arms, picked her up so that she was facing him, and swam to the surface of the water. Appellant placed Jackson on the deep-end deck. He did not describe how he got Jackson’s body out of the deep end of the pool. In that part of the pool, the water is eight feet, seven inches deep.

After appellant placed Jackson on the deck, he rolled her onto her stomach and pushed on her lower back in an effort to resuscitate her. When that failed, he rolled her on her back and applied pressure to her stomach. He also put his mouth on hers and tried to suck the water out of her lungs. Appellant was trying to resuscitate Jackson when the paramedics arrived. He did not answer their questions because he was “frightened.” Appellant said Jackson was a strong swimmer and had no idea why she drowned.

Parents Gone Wild! Kenisha Eronda Berry killed one of her babies and tried to kill another one

From Berry appeal: Appellant was indicted for the murder of an individual under six years of age.   The evidence at trial showed that in the early morning hours of November 29, 1998, Roy Black discovered the victim’s body while he and his wife, Ima, were looking for aluminum cans in a dumpster at an apartment complex in Beaumont, Texas.   Roy found the deceased male infant inside a trash bag with duct tape over his mouth.   His arms were secured across his chest with duct tape and there was fecal matter inside the trash bag.   Ima alerted the police and named the infant “Baby Hope.”

The case remained unsolved until the summer of 2003, when Debbie Beavers of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department was investigating another case involving appellant.   During the course of the investigation, appellant took Beavers to the dumpster where Baby Hope had been found.   Beavers brought this to the attention of Beaumont police officer John Boles, who had appellant’s fingerprints compared to those found on the duct tape and trash bag.   A latent palm print on the trash bag matched appellant’s right palm.   A latent fingerprint on a piece of duct tape matched appellant’s left index finger.   DNA testing of the victim’s blood and appellant’s oral swabs indicated a 99.98% probability that appellant was the mother of the victim.

On June 27, 2003, Child Protective Services (CPS) worker Tracy Rideaux met with appellant, who was in jail on another charge.   At that time, appellant had an infant daughter named Paris, who was in the care of CPS. She also had a nine-year-old daughter named Jasmine, a seven-year-old daughter named Keerstan, and a three-year-old son named Joskin.   Rideaux testified that appellant’s infant daughter was fathered by a man named Leonard Carrier and her three older children were fathered by a man named Joskin Love. At the first jail meeting, Rideaux and appellant discussed the removal of Jasmine, Keerstan, and Joskin, and the potential for a family placement.   Rideaux met with appellant in jail again on July 10, 2003, after appellant had been charged with capital murder in the death of her son Malachi, known to authorities as Baby Hope. Rideaux asked appellant if her family knew anything about Malachi or other hidden pregnancies, because their knowledge would affect the placement of appellant’s children.   Appellant told Rideaux that “she knew how to hide a pregnancy” and her weight fluctuated a lot. She stated that “her family had absolutely nothing to do with Baby Hope or what was going on.”   She revealed that she gave birth to Malachi at home in her apartment, that it was an “easy delivery,” and that he was “fine” when he was born.   She went to the store and purchased a bottle and some formula after his birth.   Her other children were with a relative at the time of his birth, and when the children returned home, she explained that “she was keeping a friend’s baby.”   She did not give Rideaux any details about the duct tape other than acknowledging that she had duct tape “lying around the house.”   She did not confess that she killed Malachi, but stated that she borrowed her grandmother’s car, placed the infant, “which was already inside the trash bag,” in the trunk, and transported him to a dumpster without anyone’s knowledge.   She stated that “the baby was not kicking or moving” when she put him in the dumpster.

Appellant testified at trial that she did not kill her baby.   She knew that she was pregnant in 1998, but she did not know how far along she was in her pregnancy.   The father of the baby was a man named Nicholas Beard.   She did not tell her family or anyone else about her pregnancy.   She gave birth at home by herself and named the infant Malachi.   He appeared to be healthy when he was born, and she fed him milk from a bottle.   His nose started running the next day, and she went to the store that morning to buy milk.   When she returned from the store, he was still asleep on the bed in her bedroom.   She lay on the couch to watch television and later checked on him because she was concerned that he had not yet awakened.   When she went into the bedroom, he was “limp” and was not moving or breathing.   She realized that he was dead, but did not call for help because she was “scared” and did not know “if it was against the law to have a baby at home.”   She put duct tape over his arms because they were stiff and sticking out and she “wanted them in front of him.”   She put duct tape over his mouth because it bothered her that his mouth was open.   She left her apartment with Malachi in a bag and later placed him in a dumpster.

The prosecutor questioned appellant on cross-examination regarding her infant daughter Paris.   Appellant acknowledged that she hid her pregnancy with Paris, but avoided answering the prosecutor’s questions about whether she had abandoned Paris on the side of a road.

Forensic pathologist Tommy Brown had performed the autopsy on Baby Hope and estimated that he was two to five days old.   Duct tape had been used to cover his mouth and to constrain his arms around his abdomen, and he had been placed inside a plastic trash bag.   His stomach contained a “milk-like product,” which indicated that he had been fed before death, and there was fecal matter inside the plastic trash bag.   He had “petechiae of the pleural surfaces of the lung,” which was consistent with oxygen deprivation.   The combination of being duct taped and covered with a plastic trash bag was also consistent with oxygen deprivation.   Brown observed no indications of an infection or sudden-infant-death syndrome.   He determined that the infant “died from asphyxia due to smothering,” and he ruled the death a homicide.   Brown opined that the infant was still alive when he was placed in the plastic trash bag, and “as the baby died, then there was a large release of fecal material from the rectum.”   The lividity on the anterior and posterior sides of the body led him to conclude that the infant was lying on his stomach when he died and that after he was discovered he was turned over and placed on his back for a short period of time.
