Granny I so feel for you and your family. It hardly seems logical that in what is supposed to be a civilised world the victims should have to go through this again and again. How can it be that we have created a system that allows courts to inflict so much pain on your family in an attempt to preserve the rights of someone like CLH? Wonder what sort of treatment she is getting in GP? Hope it is one that makes solitary seem inviting!!
Todd Willingham murdered my 3 daughters statement from Stacy Kuykendall, Cameron Todd Willingham's then wife (1)
RE: "Stacy Kuykendall, the ex-wife of Cameron Todd Willingham, offers her first detailed account of the 1991 fire that claimed the lives of her three daughters and led to Willingham’s execution in 2004.
“Todd set our house on fire then stood outside and watched it burn,” Kuykendall asserts, saying she agrees with Gov. Rick Perry’s portrayal of her husband as “a monster.” "
"Before Todd was executed he confessed to his family that he never went into the twins room at all to try and save them, that he had lied about it. Actually, he stood outside of our home as the house engulfed in flames knowing his three daughters were inside."
"Todd set our house on fire then stood outside and watched it burn. He knew our three daughters were inside this home taking there last breath. He watched them die."
"(Reporters) Mills, Possley (of the Chicago Tribune) and Grann (of the New Yorker) have all come to my home uninvited to ask me questions about my ex-husband. I told them all that I no longer believe that Todd was innocent, that he did murder my daughters and I did not want to talk about that which had to deal with him."
statement from Stacy Kuykendall, then wife to Cameron Todd Willingham and mother to Amber Louise, Karmon Diane and Kameron Marie.
TRAVIS COUNTY COURTS Former death row inmate back in court COMMENT(1) Related
Deborah Cannon Cathy Lynn Henderson walks away from the bench during a pretrial hearing at the Travis County district court 299th at the Thurman-Blackwell Criminal Justice Center this morning.
By Jazmine Ulloa American-Statesman Staff
A defense team has been assembled and attorneys are ready to begin the discovery process for a new trial in the case of Cathy Lynn Henderson, a former babysitter once on death row for the 1994 death of an infant. Henderson, now 56, appeared with her attorneys in a routine hearing Thursday before before District Court Judge Karen Sage. She spent nearly two decades incarcerated for the death of 3-month-old Brandon Baugh before a sharply divided Court of Criminal Appeals overturned her capital murder conviction and sentence in December. The court upheld a recommendation by District Judge Jon Wisser that she have a new trial based on new scientific discoveries into the nature of head injuries. “Testimony of the state’s chief experts was, at bottom, scientifically flawed,” Wisser wrote in findings dated May 14 and delivered to the appeals court last year. After the Thursday’s hearing, Eryn and Melissa Baugh said it has been a confusing and frustrating journey through the legal system, though they are confident in Travis County district prosecutors in the upcoming retrial. Friday will be the 19th-year anniversary of when their son was found. They feel they are back at square one, the couple said. “It has been a living hell,” Eryn Baugh said of the process. “Now the wounds are back open again.” Henderson claimed that Baugh died after slipping from her arms and falling about four feet to the concrete floor in her home in the Pflugerville area. She said she panicked, burying the boy’s body in a Bell County field before fleeing to Missouri, where she was found and arrested 11 days later. The search for the boy’s body and hunt for Henderson dominated headlines in February 1994. Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg has said the new charge Henderson will face will be determined after a review of court records, evidence and the new testimony from Wisser’s hearings. If the charge is capital murder, an additional determination will be made on whether to seek the death penalty, Lehmberg has said.

Attorney General: DNA tests implicate Hank Skinner in 1993 murders by Travis Ruiz Posted: 11.14.2012 at 3:12 PM Updated: 11.15.2012 at 8:40 AM

New DNA testing further implicates convicted murderer Henry "Hank" Skinner for the crime, according to the Texas Attorney General.
Pronews 7 obtained the documents on Wednesday afternoon which were filed in a Gray County State District Court.

Skinner was convicted in 1995 for the 1993 Pampa murders of Twila Busby, his live-in girlfriend and her two grown sons. The murder happened on New Year's Eve.
Initial DNA testing in 1995 implicated Skinner by showing that he was at the crime scene.
The new DNA results showed Skinner's blood in the back bedrooms of the home where the murder happened.

Skinner's DNA, according to the Attorney General's advisory, was also found on the handle of a bloody knife taken from the front porch of the home. At least one other contributor's DNA was also on the knife, according to the Attorney General.
While Skinner has not contested that he was at the crime scene, he maintained his innocence. He said he was unconscious and intoxicated on the couch at the time of the murders.
Skinner's attorney said the results should not have been released since the testing is still in progress.
"We find it troubling that the Attorney General's Office has seen fit to release partial results of the DNA testing and submit its 'advisory' to the court while the DNA testing is still in progress," said Rob Owen, attorney for Hank Skinner. "The partial results which have been produced by the initial round of DNA testing show that at least one person other than Hank Skinner and the victims may have been present in the house on the night the murders took place, and may have had contact with one of the weapons used in the killings."
Skinner was sentenced to the death penalty. He once came within one hour of being executed. Several times, the execution was postponed.
Skinner had contended that new DNA testing would show that he was innocent. Starting in 2000, he pleaded for more DNA testing.
"We have requested additional DNA testing that could improve the quality of the unknown DNA profile from the carpet sample, to allow authorities to submit it to CODIS, the national law enforcement DNA database, to search for matches there," Owen said. "We have also requested additional DNA testing of the stains from the knife, likewise hoping to develop further the DNA profile of the third contributor."
Do you think because no one has been really pushing for his execution that it hasn't happened?
As a family member it would be appropriate for you to make inquiries into this matter. Ask why? Ask if he still has appeals going? What is the holdup? Tell them you have waited years for justice. Make noise. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. You go girl!
