I know this girl and she had just cause to do what she did...Id do more than that if someone messed with my kid. Unless you have all the facts of why this happened then you shouldnt judge someone. Connie is a very sweet person who deserves a fair trial with a real lawyer..not some public defender.

I want to tell you that I was there for the whole trial. The things I saw and heard are unacceptable in any terms. She is guilty. She confessed to both papers and jury. As far as her being a nice person, depends on what you call nice. killing some one or leaving the situation. and when I personally talked to aj grandma, norma was bossy not mean. and connine testified she was leary of her ways, not afraid of norma. so please get you facts straight. she connie wont suffer now anyway three meals and a cot.

jason i must appoligize to you. i have spent some time in jail with connie and i always thought she was a really nice girl. I felt she was justified with her actions because it included her child. well this may still be true, but i just recently did some more time in jail with connie and this time i seen a side to that woman that blew me away. connie tried to slice and dice me and my celly with some razor blades. she just freaked out one night and made the excorsist look like a disney movie. her own mother testified on the stand that she had a hit list from four years ago. she didnt succeed with the razors because i called the guard on duty at the time. i didnt want to catch another charge by beating that bitches ass. the funny thing is that they put me and my celly on lock down also. for some reason this county was scared of connie and did things for her that didnt seem right. she got special treatment in jail here. weird!! not from the guys either but one of the officers that was a female, said she felt sorry for connie.

nessy i read some things on psychopaths after what connie did to me...she exibites ALL the signs!!! i used to think she was nice but i always try to take people at face value...BIG MISTAKE on my part...i never knew norma or connie before all this...i did time in jail with connie is how i got to know her...i know i am not the type of person that others listen to but damn connie just showed her true colors with me this last time...i was so glad to see her walk out of that cell on june 29th and get sent off to D.O.C. i know their are people in that prison that wont put up with her crazyness. its sad that i was one of the ones that thought she was a nice person. its also scary to think she had a hit list and probably those same people thought the same thing about her as i did..

Traci,

I was at Dwight with Connie and I heard about you. Sounds as you were the nut job. she was glad to get away from you to. She will pay for her crime. She doesnt need anymore negative comments from another jail bird. So go get a life

I think you need to know what Connie's own mother say on the stand

She told how Connie had a hit list of people who she wanted to kill

I think you need to talk to people that was around Connie every day and tell me what you think of her your self

My own Sister can tell you how Connie was
