Anti-Abortion Extremist Who Shot Doctor And Bombed Clinics Is Freed From Prison

Anti-abortion extremist Shelley Johnson, who never apologized for shooting a doctor and fireboming several abortion clinics, has been released from federal prison, sparking fears from pro-choice groups that she could continue promoting violence.

Rachelle “Shelley” Shannon left the Waseca Federal Correctional Facility in Minnesota on Monday. She was transported to a halfway house in Portland, Oregon, where she will reside for several months before a final release, according to The Kansas City Star in Missouri.

Shannon had been sentenced to 11 years in prison after shooting and wounding George Tiller, an abortion doctor and outspoken pro-choice advocate, in 1993. She was arrested several hours after the shooting. After being booked, police discovered a letter written to her daughter that detailed the crime.

“I’m not denying I shot Tiller,” she wrote. “But I deny that it was wrong. It was the most holy, most righteous thing I’ve ever done. I have no regrets.”

She received

Cosmo DiNardo Takes Plea Deal For Life In Prison, But Cousin Will Face Death Penalty Trial

Confessed spree killer Cosmo DiNardo pleaded guilty Wednesday to the murders of four young men and received a life sentence.

His cousin Sean Kratz, who authorities have alleged to be Dinardo’s accomplice, surprised the court by refusing to accept a plea deal. He will face a death penalty trial, according to prosecutors. 

DiNardo confessed to killing former classmate Jimi Patrick, 19, last July because Patrick came up thousands of dollars short in a deal with DiNardo for four pounds of pot. Days later, DiNardo and Kratz allegedly killed three other young men — Dean Finocchiaro, 19; Thomas Meo, 21; and Mark Sturgis, 22 — and then roasted the bodies in a pig cooker on DiNardo’s family farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Kratz is charged in three of four murders.

DiNardo had previously been committed to a psychiatric unit to be treated for schizophrenia, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

During the hearing Wednesday, family members of the victims lashed out

Calling Killer Nanny ‘Pure Evil,’ Judge Sentences Her To Life in Prison

Calling the New York City nanny who stabbed a 2-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl to death “pure evil,” a judge sentenced Yoselyn Ortega on Monday to life in state prison, without the possibility of parole.

Ortega stabbed Leo and Lucia Krim to death with a 13-inch kitchen knife in the bathroom of their family’s Upper West Side apartment on October 25, 2012. In April, she was convicted of two counts of first degree murder and two counts of second degree murder.

Ortega was hired by the children’s’ parents, Marina and Kevin Krim, in 2010, when Marina became pregnant with the couple’s third child, Leo, according to evidence presented during Ortega’s trial. Kevin Krim, a digital media executive at CNBC, believed hiring the nanny was necessary, he testified, because he was working 12-hour days.

On the day of the murders, Krim was on a plane returning from a business trip to the West Coast

Golden State Killer: Did The Wrong Man Serve Decades In Prison For One Of His Murders?

A man who spent nearly four decades behind bars for murder may have been wrongly convicted of a crime that was, in fact, committed by the Golden State Killer.

Police are investigating whether Joseph DeAngelo, the suspected Golden State Killer, is the true culprit behind the killing that put Craig Coley, 70, behind bars until last November.

“(It’s) within the realm of possibility that (DeAngelo) could be a suspect in our case,” Simi Valley Deputy Chief Joseph May told CBS KCAL 9 in Los Angeles.

Coley was convicted in the murder of his ex-girlfriend and her 4-year-old son in 1980. Rhonda Wicht, 24, was found raped, beaten and strangled with a macramé rope in her Los Angeles apartment. Her son Donald was smothered and suffocated in his own bed, according to prosecutors.

Coley was pardoned after police found new DNA evidence that didn’t place him at the crime scene, and he was released only
