They fought to keep her killer from coming up for parole — that battle was lost in the courts, and Judith Ann Neeley had a parole hearing in May.

They fought to keep her behind bars, collecting names on petitions and asking for letters in opposition. They won that battle; Neelley remains in Julia Tutwiler Prison.

TV show tells story of EHT woman who killed boyfriend


The woman on the other end of the line was hysterical.
Through screams and sobs, Eileen Leone spoke of men forcing their way in to her boyfriend’s Egg Harbor Township home June 29, 2006.


“Please hurry up,” she yells.
“Darius,” she calls to her boyfriend, 32-year-old Darius Smith.
But Smith, a beloved local youth sports coach, was already mortally wounded.
It would take eight years for his killer to be charged. 
Leone, who is now serving a 30-year sentence for murder, is the subject of this week’s “Snapped” episode on the Oxygen network.
