There are two sides to every story and his isn't getting out yet. I encourage those of you who take what you read in the newspaper with a grain of salt. Wait until the evidence speaks. Someone is lying and I hope that the truth comes out.

Her testimony is totally out of sync with how she acted and what she did. I believe this is a selfish manipulative woman who brought this on herself. I've knownn the couple for years and I can tell you that she has manipulated and controlled this man from the first time they met. I know this man and I can tell you he is not the person she is making him out to be. I can tell you that she lies and manipulates things to work in her favor. I just hope the jury sees the truth through all of this and that justice is served. If I'm wrong and he did this then he deserves to be punished. However, in my dealings with Dana I don't believe a thing that comes out of her mouth.

kmd - you hide behind initials, you claim to know Robert and Danna (note the correct spelling of her name), you claim she was selfish, controlling and manipulative. Please explain further because she is my step sister, I have known her since I was 6 and she was 9. Selfish, controlling and manipulative are words I would NEVER use to describe her. We have had our differences over the years but I can tell you she is a loving, devoted mother, she is a person that would give you the shirt off her back. I would call her in the middle of the night for help, and she was there...no questions asked. If she was so controlling how is it that Robert, went to India for 2 weeks with another couple without her. She encouraged him to go and would never deny him the experience. She supported him in acheiving his dreams of owning and operating a martial arts school...even though she would be leaving a city and job she loved...this does not seem selfish, it seems selfless, this does not seem controlling or manipulative. So I ask again, explain how you know these things about her.

I know the couple well. He is a TEXTBOOK psychopath. Before you do anything look it up right now! He was spending time with a woman in India (seen the pictures to proove it). I wonder what really happened to his first wife and to my friend four months ago...

I used initials because of space and time. My name is Kelly and I've known Rocky or Robert as you know him... for his whole entire life. I am his cousin. I was with him when Erin died and I was with him when he and Danna...(excuse the spelling) got together. I was there for the wedding...showers and family interactions. I can only speak as to how she acted with him in our family situations and it wasn't pleasant at all. I know him and I've had interactions with her. She was very controlling over his time and his relationships with us. That's what I can speak to. I've known Robert for 39 years so I think I know him pretty well. And I can tell you that if he had an affair then that was wrong and out of character but I can see how it could've happened. It also doesn't mean he picked up a gun and purposfully shot Danna. Like I said before if I am wrong he deserves to be punished...but from what I've seen from her and heard from her stories to police...I honestly don't think he did...

You obviously do not KNOW either of them or you would know that Erin died in a car accident BEFORE they got married. He gave her his last name in burial. Even if he had an affair...which I'm not so sure of...that doesn't mean he did what he is accused of...

All I can say is lightning does not strike the same place twice. My deepest sympathies in the untimely death of your friend four months ago. Our families thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hello Anonymous in Durham. I hope you receive this post even though the trial is over. I too know the couple and believed in Danna from the beginning. I have always wondered why women keep dying all around him. Erin,almost Danna and your friend back in April. Erin may have died in a car accident, but due to the current circumstances, I think the police should check into that "accident". As for your friend, the truth will come out eventually. May she rest in peace. My sympathies to you, I believe she would still be alive had he not gotten out on bond. Coincidences happen, but 3? That is too many. For those of you who still believe in Robert....seriously people??? Stop drinking the punch!!!

What other accident are you talking about? If police need to investigate Erins accident then they should go for it. I don't see how someone getting hit head on by another car and dying could've been Roberts fault? What happened with the other accident?

KMD-I'm not going into details, but please know that another married woman is dead that became involved with Robert after he posted bond. The details will come out eventually and I'm sure he will stand trial. Very, very sad. Robert is an extremely sick man, who belongs behind bars, away from women he claims to care about.

Pretty baseless accusation. Can't you at least give the name of the dead woman or are you afraid people will look it up instead of taking you at your word?

It doesn't bother me for Robert's supporters to not take my word. If they knew him as well as they claimed, they would know her name. Out of respect for the woman's family, again I won't go into details. The public will find out at some point and hopefully, Robert's supporters will realize they have been deceived.

If you were really so concerned about people knowing how bad a man he supposedly is, you would at least provide some information to let us know that you are not making up the entire thing. I heard someone he knew in some other state died years ago. Maybe he had something to do with that? It makes so much more sense <sarc> that someone with so many friends who have been friends with him for years would not know his "true" character, but you would because Danna told you.

I have to agree with Anonymous that Robert is textbook psychopath/sociopath. A third women did die (who he was extremely close to and possibly but not definitely involved with), but he was out of town with another one of his MANY married girlfriends at the time of her death. To kmd, the reason people believed Robert was married to Erin, is because that's what he told people, and still defends to this day that he was married to her in letters written within the last month. (No marriage certificate is available.) He was aggressive towards myself and other women. He lied about innumerable things from getting a BS in Business to his marriage to his total devotion to each of his girlfriends who all believed the sun rose and set on him. I believed in him and was one of his biggest supporters- believing an enormous injustice had occurred... but I was wrong and I'm very sorry for that. He is a danger to society; he is where he needs to be. Over two months later, I am still terrified of him finding me one day. I hope Danna finds peace in her life going forward.

Convert, wow. I am so glad that a Robert Supporter was able to see the truth! I hope you find peace with all of this as well, it has affected so many lives. As to Robert being out of town during the third woman's death, evidence exists to the contrary. Take care.
