i have read that the older sister of megan mecum(nichole connolly romhill) is talking about her motive being insurance money? it is odd to me... the news has not mentioned that... how does she know these kind of details if she isnt involved? the news said that megan was married to the victim as of january this year and he had to get a restraining order against megan in feburary... this is only march!!! my heart goes out to the family of this man. i pray that all guilty parties get justice.

Considering this Trashy girl was married to him for only 9 weeks, I would say money was a motive. Also beings she had a "teenage boyfriend". She never loved him an couldn't stay off pills and dope long enough to really even know him. He opened his door to her, tried to put her in rehab, which she got kicked out of, and put up with all her bs. This bitch needs to be given the death penalty. Also the paper says it would not have happened had Keith not "tried" to stab the 17 year old, but he was acting in self defense. I mean these bitch boys were robbing him, what's worse is he has CP. See what dope does.

Being this is a "felony murder" case the death penalty is a possibility. The felony murder being that murder was committed in the commison of a robbery.

I think it was a set up from the start. They were married for a month when she told him she was gonna kill him. The boy was 17. She used him in
This as a cover story, i think. My heart is with this mans family. She has all the motive. The guys had nothing to gain!

You know, honestly,I first have to say, please dont formulate opinions based solely on news clips. I can speak for all the parties involved, and YES, ALL of them sould be held accountable for THEIR actions. Now, let me ask this of anyone reading these posts, do you personally know them? Have you read anything about the case other than internet and TV/paper? And, again, in no way am I suggesting "we overlook" things based on a childhood, "my mommy didn't love me enough so I shouldn't be responsible for the part I played in taking a life", but is anyone aware of their pasts? How they were raised? Who and what were their influences? Were they positive? Were they left to their own devices? Or, was a life lived like that "normal" to them? Maybe encouraged? NO. Unless you're among the handfull of people, including myself, that know, deep, private, intimte things about ALL parties involved, that give more than a glimps into their worlds. They got "lost in the shuffle several generations before their births, and nobody cared to help ANY of them, when family was screaming it at the rehab centers, when they got locked up, they weren't given training - occupational or life skills, they were treated like caged animals, got three meals thrown at them a day and were left to germinate in an environment, for extended periods of time, which is ideal for fostering the further deprivation of their minds. WHAT THEY ALL THREE DID WAS WRONG - NO QUETION!- ALL THREE OF THEM MUST BE HELD ACCOUNABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS - BUT YOU'RE STILL MISSING THE FOREST FOR THE TREES - WHAT CREATED NEUROPATHWAYS IN THEIR BRAINS TO OVERRIDE THEIR CONSCIOUS AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF PUBLIC VIEWING OF MURDER AS TABOO -(AFTER ALL, EVEN IF RELEASED AT SOME POINT, THEY WILL ALWAYS BE VIEWED AS MURDERERS, THEY ALL WERE AWARE OF THAT, TWEAKED OUT OR NOT)- AND ALLOW THEM TO PHYSICALLY MANIFEST THEIR MENTAL PERCEPTION?- AND THE ROOT OF THAT IS, WHAT/HOW DID YOUR LIFE GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOUR BRAIN FUNCTIONS IN A WAY THAT "MURDER"/"STABB ING"/"ROBBING" ARE VIEWED AS "REASONABLE OPTIONS"?- THEN ASK HOW THE HELL IT GOT SO BAD WITHOUT A-N-Y-O-N-E PICKING UP ON YOUR BEHAVIOR, ACTIONS, LIFESTYLE, AND DIDN'T AT LEAST OFFER HELP? As I know all parties involved, I can tell you that I was not refeering to Elaine and the rehabs...I was refeering to something in their lives over 30 years ago...before Megan, Levi, or Hubert were born... If the "authorities" were aware of what the situation was 30 + years ago...and it coninued in spurts through the years in which "authorities" were in and out of the family's lives...were they blind? Or did they just look at the situation and say, "We simply don't care about any of you, good luck to ya. If you lived in Newburgh and worked at ALCOA and made 60k a year but had a drug poblem that was leading you into making bad choices, we'd get you some help. You're a contributing and productive member of society! But, ya'll aren't, and it's just not worth it." - THE TRUE STORY LIES MUCH DEEPER THAN ANYTHING IN PRINT OR ON THE NEWS ABOUT IT - PLEASE YEILD JUDGEMENT TO THE LORD, AND FORMULATE YOUR (IM SAYING IT TO ME AS MUCH AS EVERYONE ELSE) OPINION FROM TRUE FACTS AND NOT THE TIDBITS OF IMPLICATIONS DROPPED BY THE COPS AND MEDIA. BEST WAY TO GET A JURY TO CONVICT IS "PAD UP" THE CRIME WITH GRUESOME BITS, FOCUSING ON HOW "DEPLORABLE" AND "HANEOUS" THE ACTS WERE. A POTENTIAL JUROR READS THAT, BAMM, GUILTY...IF IT WAS THAT SIMPLE, THEN THE PROSECUTOR COULD WALK IN WITH THE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE AND GET A CONVITION...INSTEAD, THEY'RE WHEELING BOXES ON A MOVING DOLLY FULL OF FILES CONCERNING THE CASE. Think it's possible, seeing the stack of papers the prosecutors are wheelin in, that a lot was left out of what the cops first said???

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE CHEAP SHOTS, ESPECIALLY ON AN ANONOMOUS BLOG...BUT IF YOU MUST...PLEASE TRY TO BE CLEVER...OR AT LEAST SHOOT FOR CORRECT SPELLING...WASN'T A TYPO MIS-SPELL...BECAUSE THE PHRASE "PHAT" IS SPELLED A "PH", NOT ALL WORDS STARTING PHONETICAL SOUND OF "F", ARE SPELLED WITH A "PH"...

My mom whooped my ass slot and my dad drank ....oh and I didn't get slot for Christmas and had cheap school shoes....show if I show up to rob and maybe cut your throat will you understand and forgive me? My mom was poor 25 yrs before I was born...so if I decide to kill one of your family members your totally understanding and forgiving of my actions? Point is people go thru things in life if everyone was excused for their actions due to their past what type world would this be?

I can tell you all one of those Boys is My brother and we didnt have the best "role models" in life BUT our household was full of LOVE He has always had a Job WE NEVEr had to rob or beat anyone out of nothing our parents carried a JOB all of our life in fact My dad still works to this day! I can tell you that you cannot convict a Person on " hear say" & i know megan didnt get ONLY five years promise you that! Her trial isnt even till Jan so no one knows what she has period! I agree with who ever wrote the Post above all except My brother wasnt lost in NO shuffle before birth nor did his family shun him we have all helped and had his back through it all! He did have it rough this past couple of years He has had a Lot of hurt in his life but Not due to the way He was raised....im Not going to sit here and let a topix Forum piss Me off but im Not going to let someone claim to know whats happened cause only one knows the whole truth and i think alot will be suprised AT the end result of this....
