My thoughts exactly. This case doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

I know the man personally and I KNOW he is being framed. His ex wife, the ex wife of the vicitm, wrote a novel about a woman killing her husband, it was published the same year he came up missing. Kinda fishy dont you think? The novel is called "Twist of Mind" By Loretta Hade. You can find it on amazon. He is innocent.

As his mother I completely believe in his innocence. He is a good christain man and a loving son. Anyone who reads his ex-wife;='s book has to question her sanity. She is behind all of this. thanks for your prayers and support. God will deliver.

he is hanging in there. He has kept his faith and is depending on prayers of his friends and family. Keep praying. He hasn't had an arraigment yet. Thank you so much for your encouragement.

As stated during the trial, "Shawn Ivey has a long criminal history of violent acts". That is not an opinion, it is a record of fact. He has entered a plea of GUILTY to voluntary manslaughter. He now sits in prison where he belongs. Loretta Ivey also entered a plea of GUILTY to voluntary manslaughter. They both testified each other committed the murder. Most damning of all was the testimony of Loretta's own son, a member of the Army serving our country in Afghanistan. He testified that both Shawn and Loretta admitted to him that they both murdering the victim.
God will damn there souls to hell.

Excuse me, but there wasn't a trial, only Shawn appearing before the judge for his lawyer to present his case. He took a Alford plea(look it up}. It says that I will take this plea because my lawyer has advised me that a jury might find me quilty. It also says although I am taking a plea I am also declaring that I am innocent(which he is) of manslaugther. And we must serve two different Gods because the God I serve would never damn someone to hell who asks for forgiveness(even someone as evil as Loretta)if she asks for forgiveness. Her son testified that LORETTA admitted to him, not Shawn. There wasn't ANY DNA or any tangible evidence that linked Shawn to the crime;only testimony from those who have slept with Loretta and has been trapped by her web. You sound very vindictive and I pray that God will help you to realize that we are all God;s children and he loves us all.

People need to get the facts before they speak.everything hismom stated is fact.But she left out that Loretta wrote a book-A twist of mind-that was published 2 months after she killed him about getting by with murder(her husband in the book)Also"her own son"as was stated on here testified that an innocent man had molested him and then admitted he lied after the man served 10 months in prison.you can get that story on people.com -About face..Not only did her son lie in court about that,her daughter did the same a few years later and then admitted her mom told her to do it.My bible says JUDGE NOT LEST YE BE JUDGED.(especially if you dont know what you are talking about)

I also agree with Wait a minute. I wish you would contact Judge Brenda Weaver Of his lawyer, Michael Parham. Michael Parham is the public defender. Unfortunatly we do not have the money to hire a private lawyer. Loreatta Hade Ivey is one EVIL woman and the judge told Shawn that he was just one of many "stupid" men that she had under her spell. She tod him his biggest mistake was just being around her. Her last boyfriend got up in court last time and testified that Loretta had hit him in the head more than once. So, she is Capable o murder. Thanks.
