Frances Elizabeth “Beth” Johnson murder 7/26/1984 *Husband, Paul Anthony Johnson, convicted, sentenced to life in prison; Conviction overturned*

dv awarenessFrom Johnson’s 1991 appeal: During the early morning hours of July 26, 1984, the body of Frances Elizabeth Johnson, hereinafter “the victim,” was found in the bedroom of the home she shared with the appellant. She was nude, and a towel was draped across her chest. She had been severely beaten about her face and body, strangled, and repeatedly stabbed in the chest. The bedroom had been ransacked; the dresser drawers had been pulled out; and clothing had been scattered about. The victim’s class ring and wedding band, which she normally wore, were missing. However, she was wearing a gold necklace when her body was discovered. The appellant subsequently reported to the police that $600 in cash was missing from her checkbook, which was on the kitchen counter.

Diane Nance, a coworker of the victim, last saw the victim alive when the two of them returned from work at 1:40 a.m. on the date of the homicide. As Nance drove away from the victim’s house, she observed the victim calling her dog, and she heard the dog barking in the distance.

At approximately 3:00 a.m., the appellant arrived at his parents’ house. He was visibly upset, and was screaming and hollering. The appellant’s father called the sheriff’s department and informed someone that there had been a burglary at the appellant’s home and that his wife had been hurt. (However, the dispatcher’s log book does not have a notation regarding this call.) The appellant and his parents then drove to the appellant’s home. While the appellant and his mother waited outside, the appellant’s father went into the house, felt for the victim’s pulse and, finding none, concluded that she was dead. He returned and told his wife and son to go to a neighbor’s house and to call the police. They went to the house of Monroe Harcrowe and called the sheriff’s department. The records of the dispatcher show that this call was received at 3:15 a.m.

As a result of this call, Sheriff Louie Coleman went to the scene. When he arrived, he observed the appellant, the appellant’s parents, and several other people outside the house. He noticed that the appellant was wearing blue jeans, but that he was not wearing a shirt or shoes. He entered the house and observed the victim’s body. He could find no pulse when he touched the body. He noticed that a towel was draped across the upper portion of the body, covering her chest. He additionally noticed blood running from her mouth and bruises on her face and neck. It was obvious that the victim had been severely beaten about the face, neck, and chest area, strangled, and stabbed three times in the upper body region. A butcher’s knife was on the floor next to the body. The tip of the knife was missing, but was later found embedded in the carpeted floor beneath the body.

A subsequent examination of the body indicated that two of the stab wounds penetrated the entire body. The third stab wound did not penetrate the entire body; however, the knife struck the aorta, causing the victim’s death.

It appears that there has not been justice in this case. Please remember Beth, as she lived and had a life before it was cut short.

Monsters Among Us: David Kevin Hocker killed his boss, Jerry Wayne Robinson to get money for crack; Executed 9/30/2004

remembering the victimsFrom Hocker’s appeal: The victim, Jerry Wayne Robinson, owned a small business in Houston County, Alabama.   The Defendant David Kevin Hocker worked for Mr. Robinson.   They were together on March 21, 1998 and were seen by the victim’s wife at West Building Supply in Dothan, Alabama. That would be the last time she saw her husband alive.   The next time she saw him was at the funeral home when she identified his body.

“Sergeant Donald Valenza of the Houston County Sheriff’s Department received a call from the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department informing him that Mobile had the Defendant Hocker in custody.   He had confessed to Mobile authorities that he had murdered Jerry Robinson.   Sergeant Valenza went to Mobile and took a statement from Hocker at which time Hocker admitted to killing Jerry Robinson by stating that he had broken a knife off in his chest.   Sergeant Valenza transported Hocker back to Houston County, Alabama, and made arrangements with the Headland Police Department to locate the body.   Hocker took the officers to the body which was located in Henry County, Alabama.   The body contained a single stab wound to the chest with the ․ blade imbedded in Jerry Robinson’s chest.   There were numerous cuts, abrasions and other injuries.

“Upon further investigation and the Defendant’s statement it was learned that Jerry Robinson and Hocker had gone to West Building Supply to purchase materials to build a fence.   Hocker later dumped the building materials in a ditch.   He had intended to kill Jerry Robinson at his office but a co-owner was present.   By ruse, Hocker talked Jerry Robinson into going with him to Henry County to pick up a microwave oven.   While in the truck Hocker stabbed Jerry Robinson in the chest, drove to a remote area and dragged Jerry Robinson from the vehicle.   Hocker then proceeded to beat and stomp Jerry Robinson causing over thirty contusions, scrapes and cuts.   Jerry Robinson’s Adam’s apple was broken.   There was a fracture of the thyroid cartilage.   According to the forensic pathologist, Dr. Parades, Jerry Robinson remained alive during this vicious beating and was able to feel pain.   However, the stab wound to the chest was the lethal wound.

“Hocker stole Jerry Robinson’s green truck, ATM card and cash.   After several withdrawals through the victim’s ATM card Hocker purchased $400.00 in crack cocaine and then drove to Mobile, Alabama. While on crack he believed the police were chasing him and he abandoned the truck and ran through the woods causing numerous scratches to his face.   Hocker later rented a motel room in Mobile and called 911 to turn himself in.   He subsequently gave statements to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department and Sergeant Valenza confessing to the crime.

“In his statements Hocker claimed that the victim made sexual advances towards him which caused him to stab the victim.   However, three witnesses testified that Jerry Robinson was not homosexual.   He was a married man with two children.”
