Hopefully the father is aware of this and he is taking action on getting his children. I read somewhere that one of the children was disabled, so lets all pray that the father gets custody of his 4 children. We don't want them to just be thrown in a home if there is a willing & loving father. Don't forget people, there is a father in their lives and he may of found out about all of this the same way we did...by reading his local paper. To bad these children had to be subjected to this...

In comment to jenn the correction officer who has had contact with nissen with due respect to his family that are not like him it's Nissen not nissen. Not all of us support him, what he has done or what he is doing. If this woman wants this kind of spot light fame have at it, his family doesn't want it and never has. We wish everyone would quit talking about him and giving him attention he does not derserve.

"Justine told reporters that she’s been fascinated by killers since the age of 4 and has the word “redrum”(murder spelled backwards) tattooed on her back.“They are the kind of people I would hang out with,” according to Justine.“Not everyone who murders someone is a bad person."

This woman should NOT be raising kids, that's for sure. Where is their father/fathers?

Yeah that was the movie about him and Lotter raping and killing a young woman, but neither have been put to death. Not sure which one is on death row or if both are. Wish they both would fry in the electric chair.

John Lotter is on death row. I remember him from high school. Nissen has life in prison. I remember him from high school, too.

They took the lives of three innocent people. And like most cowardly killers, still deny what they've done, although it was proven in court. Nissen may have gotten life, but he was a part of it all the same. They're both scum of the earth.....

Okay, The reason I remembered those two men is because I seen the movie a couple times. It stuck in head for a long time because I grew up in Lincoln. Any-way, what they did was messed up and this woman from Chicago that want's to marry , Tom must have a screw loose or some-thing. From experience, the pen-pal and were gonna get married bull, never work's out. What? does she stand to gain?? there will never be any kind of physical contact, like one said. I know, I would not find romance out of them kind of places, it just don't work out that way. Personally, I'd be afraid of this dude- May-be just may-be that kind of shit turn's her on, who know's?

When were they sentenced and in what state? In a few states they will still fry if they commited the offence before 2000.

Wow. I can't begin to understand what she is thinking wanting to be married to this person.

Maybe that's the thing to do. You know, I think I'll divorce my husband, you know, the one that supports my children, is home every night to be close to me, is my daily companion, and is good to me. Oh, and did I mention that he doesn't have a criminal record for so much as a misdemeanor let alone murder or rape? Nope, doesn't matter though. I'm going to get me one of those idiots off death row. Maybe Scott Peterson would like to have a new wife?

Sickens me. Furthermore, she obviously doesn't have very high standards for herself. What is she saying to her children? That's it's ok to set your sights on the lowest life form for a spouse?

I think they were sentenced in 1996, maybe earlier. In the state of Nebraska.
Wish they both would fry but only one is on death row.

First of all, she is "not all there". Her children need to be protected...from her!

That means he will cook like he deserves. Nebraska has the sense to make old sparky the only option for death row inmates.
