I believe in and eye for an eye,but something was not right about this case and I believe that not all was said and done to try to bring it out.I believe that he should have took it out of the county.Someone with some common since and life knowledge needs to look into it.I believe he got railroaded.

i know this young man and i dont believe he did this either, what about the bloody palm print that was not his....the real killer maybe, just because you have an affair with someone doesnt mean you kill them.....

Not only the palm print but other DNA not being connected to him.Why would the assult victim admit to taking the weapon to the bathroom if he was supposed to have assulted her with it? Like I said I believe in an eye for an eye but he didnt even know the assult victim to hurt her and the other women he cared alot for and alot of people are asking the same thing that knew him and her.They knew he wouldnt hurt her for nothing.He had no reason.

I believe Jason Todd is innocent.I don't know how 12 people can sleep knowing they convicted an innocent man.I think the judge needs to take another good look at this case and over rule the jury's decision.There is no physical evidence or dna to link him to the murder.I cant believe the police were so incompetent in their investigation in this case.I hope the 12 jury's sleep well after reading this.

Thank everyone who reads and writes on this topic.If you were in that court room,you would have been an upset person.June told to many story's and lied.The lawyers called her out on her lies and still nothing happened.I believe in an eye for an eye but he didnt do this and now he is doing 18-28 years because she is a victom,well you can be a victom but also be the person that did it.

I can say alot,but the one thing i will say is Jason Todd is not a murderer.The case should have been overturned.June purgered herself on stand 3 times,but was she held in contempt.The detective on this case lost information on another murder case,so why was she able to work this one.June was under the influance of drugs lied on jason to get herself and her daughter out of trouble.Their is no evidence against him.They just took a drug users word and stuck with it.In time her lies will come out.And i hope the people that convicted him will realize then how wrong they where.Woodford County likes to shove everything under the covers.They have the wrong man,and now the murderer is walking around woodford county,around chidren and everyone else.What will she do next,and who will she blame it on ........you

There has been some people in the county that have told and said what they knew to other people but wont speak up.These people need to understand that there is an innocent man's life on the line and that they need to do what's best for everyone without being afraid.These people have no right to talk if they arent going to do anything about what they know or what's being said to them.Grow up and tell what you know.

I for one really would like to know what people "know"... I am Valerie's oldest daughter and only know June & Jennifer's side of the story and what my little sister was saying after seeing something go on in that house the night our mother was murdered so please feel free to email me rmonjure@yahoo.com i'm looking for anything because I to don't understand this.. I have never met Jason but knew stories from my mom. And for the record they were not having an affair at the time that all of this took place. Several years before that yes but not when this took place. Please if you have information share it with the family we want to know and deserve to know!

The police were not the factor in this case, more like the lead defense attorney trying his FIRST murder case and the defense team basically daring the jury to find him guilty. They also called a defense witness as an expert who solidified the commonwealth's position on the murder weapon. I can say that I did not beleive that he would be found guilty, but it was not anything the the police did. He needs to hire a competent attorney.

The police took him to jail not june and in time they will know they were wrong.So karma is a bitch.If they did the job right from the start it would not take the state to tell the county they are wrong.....We all will be laughing at the headlines then.......................
