WOW....ok your totally nuts, I am just posting to support BOTH family's (which i have already said) which means I am not in them. I don't know what or who your talking about some guy that also has nothing to do with me. I also don't believe in karma I believe in GOD. He knows all things which none of us do unless you were there. Leave both these family's alone already. Your not helping no matter who you think you are or know.

Wheresthenews, you are toatlly wrong. My brother and i have seen and visited each other in the last few years. I don't know where you got your info.

I know this isn't Kerry, spells too well...LOL.

Now you are back peddling like Richard and your story changes. Now you are nice to both families, right. And to family, I am just going by the last 10 years of having to put up with him to see Donna.And listening to his bullshit.

Well, I said I was not going to waste my time with this anymore, but you know what. Donna was no angel either she used meth, heroin and grass and drank that came out in the trial we were there monday an heard every word, richard will be serving time for her death, but the jury followed the law and listened to THE FACTS and made an informed decision regarding same. She was just as much at fault as he was so you all need to stop all the bs and get on with your lives. If this is all you have time to do in your lives then i not only pity you but will say a prayer for your families at night, god is the final judge here, justice has been served whether you like the outcome or not. That is why there are laws in this country.

Unfortunately for Donna, her final judge was Richard. To blame her for her own murder is ignorant. Do some research on"victim blaming" and you might learn something valuable. Certainly Donna was not a perfect human being.... none of us are, but she did not murder herself. Richard and Richard only killed her and got off way too easy in my opinion. I can only hope some of his karma comes back to him perhaps by the hands of his fellow prisoners. Donna did not deserve to die and will be missed forever by those of us who knew her. I had to distance myself from her after she slipped into the drug world, but always hoped that the Donna I knew and loved, the Donna who was the great mother, wife, and friend to many, the Donna who stood up for me at my wedding, would someday come back to all of us. Sadly now, this will never be. My sympathies go out to her children who must live with their mother having been murdered for the rest of their lives, and also to the families, Richard's included. There are no winners here, only losers.

I didn't blame Donna for her murder. They were both doing drugs, and drinking, and are both to blame for what happened. You guys have acted like she was totatly innoccent, and did nothing to cause this, but she did. Both families are griefing in different ways, and have to deal with this.

In a way she did cause her death to happen, what would you do if someone attacked you in your sleep with a hammer?? People choose their own life paths to follow no matter anyone else thinks and in this case they both chose the wrong ones and now hte scene must be played out as it is now doing, so I think we all need to stop the bickering and fussing and all try to get on with our lives and grieve as we need to, life goes on no matter what and we have no power to change that. but the law and justice have been served and i do think we all need to step back and let ourselves heal and as i have said before and will say again, i am so very sorry for your loss and we do pray for your families to be able to heal from this.

I'm sorry family and lvsister, and I do understand why you are saying Donna was "to blame" but I feel differently. She was not to blame because she used drugs. Maybe you think she was to "blame" because of Richard's story, but the facts do not support his actions. He dumped her body like it was trash, tried running half way across the US, and then when he was caught, tried to get out of being sent back to California. That does not sound like an accidental death to me... it points to his guilt actually and unfortunately we will never hear Donna's side of what happened. She cannot speak for herself ever now, like Richard can. Yes, the jury has spoken and we must all accept that, but I will never blame Donna and do not believe your brothers story at all. He is lucky to have family who continues to support him as you both do. I am sorry for everyone involved here, but must speak up when Donna is "blamed" because no matter what she did, she did not deserve being "blamed" for her own murder. I know I sound harsh, but this is my opinion and I am entitled to it. I lost a great friend. You may get your brother back in a few years but my friend is gone forever. I really am truly sorry for both sides here.

all i can say to that is, when the court transcripts are made availble is to purchse a copy and read all of the testimony, richards attorney told us her own son would not even testify for either side, that is truely sd.

Her own son had or has a bigger monkey on his back than either Donna or Richard so his refusal to testify to anything does not surprise me. Crackheads should not get away with murdering crackheads. Whether you are an addict or not, murder is wrong.

And also blaming one person for everything is wrong.No one will ever know,excatly everything that happened.So, stop blaming everything on one person, that blame is shared. My brother is as much to blame as Donna. Both families have a lot to deal with. Both of them had a lot of problems and it should of never ended this way. You don't believe what was said in court, but 12 jurors did.

Donna won't get her life back in 11 years like Richard might. And yes, I am blaming Richard. He could have chosen to walk away if indeed Donna did attack him, and not end her life. Why kill her? Why not just get away from her if she was acting crazy? He chose instead to kill her. The jury spared your brothers miserable life because Donna was a druggie, pure and simple. I do have sympathy for Richard's family but when you keep saying how Donna deserved it, I'm sorry, but I must tell you, you're wrong and need to examine you're own dysfunctions within your own family to continue to defend this man who clearly does not deserve support from anyone.

I never said she deserved to die. I said both were to blame for their actions. You keep on putting words into my mouth. And my brother's life isn't miserable, he is a person just like anyone else. Donna and Richard chose to live their lifes the way they did, and this is what happened.

This is what happened because your brother chose to kill her instead of walk away. His life is miserable if he has any shred of decency left because his remorse should be overwhelming to him every day he he wakes up knowing he took Donna's life. To diminish Donna and say that somehow she was to blame because she had a disease called addiction is just ignorant. If she was a diabetic having problems and she was murdered would she also be to blame? Educate yourself because your brother will be free soon and he will seek you out I would imagine. Maybe if you do some real work and soul searching you will stop enabling him and allow him to either sink or swim on his own. In my opinion his brain is fried if he went so far as to murder someone he supposedly loved. Defending him and blaming Donna is what an enabler would do. If you really want to heal do it the right way and quit defending and coddling Richard. You're part of his problem.... Take this opportunity while he's in jail and quit kissing his sorry ass. It takes a village to do good and do bad.

Donna was no angel...enough said.

Agreed ...... Donna was no angel and neither was Richard. Richard did however see himself as god since he took her life as only god should do, and, did not say he was sorry or admit what he had done, nor accept his punishment willingly. I would have respected him if he did by the way. Instead he tried to get away with murder and failed which seems to be the story of his life. I don't have any problem with you, family, but with your blame of Donna. Drug addicts do not deserve to be murdered no matter how you spin it.

this is going o be the last time i talk on this blog since you all are not willing to accept the judgement of the law, we are not coddling richard we are ashamed, shocked and horrified that one of our family could do such a thing to another human bing and for any of you out there to think otherwise is very wrong!!! they both chose the wrong life paths and that is that, we have said we are sorry for her death but you only seem to still want blood you do not want to accept the trial as it went, if you disagree with it then go back to the da and say something to his face instead of harassing my family, we have done nothing to you and for your information there is no such thing as bad blood, only bad choices and bad people.

Thank you lvsister for saying you are shocked, ashamed and horrified that a family member could do such a thing. That means a lot. The blame of Donna is wrong no matter what happened and is what I have objected to. The bad blood thing was not said by me and is an ignorant statement. I am sure you are also suffering and am sorry. Please accept my apologies if you think I was targeting you because I was not. I lost a beautiful friend and am angry because of it but you have lost also and I do recognize that.
