This is a public forum, meaning people have the right to discuss, suspect and express anything about anyone.Save the money you were planning on spending on that attorney because you don't have a legal case against anyone. So they are talking about your sister and you don't like it, well too bad, they have the right to voice their opinions about her just as I see you have voiced your opinion about some of them. Life isn't fair sweety, so just suck it up and get over it.And just a little thing to consider,this will never die down.A life has been taken, families torn apart and lives shattered, you can bet your ass people will continue to voice their opinion on this matter for years to come.

According to the docket of the 25th Judicial Circuit Court, on 01APR10 a sentencing hearing was scheduled for 14MAY10. That was recorded on the docket 01APR10. Also Benny Volner's Attorney Bryan Scheiderer filed a motion for judgement of aquittal on 19APR10.

It's my opinion: I sorta doubt this aquittal will be granted.

I wasn't able to be there. I'm pretty sure this was Benny Volners trial your talking about, Miss Theresa? I'm not surprised that life is all he got. I'm not sure but did the prosecutor seek the death penalty in this case? I'm not seeing any public records about it, but nothing was said for sure what the prosecution was seeking.

One of four people charged in the murder of a family member in Douglas County was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Tuesday.

Thirty-one-year-old Julia Monnahan pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and first-degree robbery, and was given a concurrent 15-year sentence on each count.

The body of Dustin Skaggs was found at the bottom of a water-filled rock quarry in Laclede County after he was reported missing in February of 2008.

Charged along with Monnahan was her husband Dennis Volner, who also received a 15-year sentence after pleading guilty. Elvis Volner was sentenced to 30-years in prison for first-degree robbery, and 25-years for armed criminal action after a jury found him guilty in June. Another cousin of Skaggs, Benny Volner, was sentenced to life in prison without parole following his trial in Texas County.

I'm just wondering where is crystal now? I guess everyone has forgotten what this little skank did- if she hadn't been a slut- maybe- none of this would have happened!

well i am happy to hear that benny and elvis are going to be in jail for a long time but i think dennis and julia should have gotten my opinion they should have gotten done to them what they did to for all u on here talking shit about the children of the volners or all of the volners well you cant judge an entire family just bc most of them are pieces of shit....that is the same thing as racism...judging all blacks/whites/whatever else race just bc one person of that race is bad....that is like saying that all ppl are murderers or whatever just bc some white ppl are like that.....well as in every family u have ur good and ur bad.....but to judge innocent children just bc of their last name and wish death on them well that is just sickening pathetic and sad.....i have children that is in the same family as volners(not same last name) and it does not mean anything....what happened to a name is just that...A NAME....havent u ever heard dont judge a book by its cover or its whats on the inside that matters...grow up u sick fucks and leave the kids alone....and as far as crystal goes well i dont know what to believe about her but whether she did anything or not only her and God know and IF she did then she will have to be the one to stand before God on her judgement day not all of you
