With an Axe
THE FIRST CUT IS ALWAYS THE DEEPEST

New York. 1841. JOHN C. COLT, brother of gun maker Samuel Colt, was one of the city's earliest recorded axe murderers. With ice cold indifference, he bludgeoned a man to death for money -- and hid the body in a crate.
Houston. 1983. KARLA FAY TUCKER savagely murdered Jerry Dean with a pickaxe. When she found God and personal salvation, Christian groups and feminists protested her death sentence. But the law said Karla had to pay...with her life.
Passaic, New Jersey. 1996. RITA GLUZMAN masterminded the brutal slaying of her husband, a brilliant Russian scientist. When her cousin was caught disposing of the victim's chopped-up body along the waterfront, he told police the whole monstrous story.

on Friday, February 20, 2009 I wrote; I've read half of the stories and I am now at the Karla Faye Tucker one. I don't know much about this case. The only thing I do know is she was on death row and had come a believer. lots of people wanted her not to die, against the death penalty cause she had discovered God? but the government decided against it. Never knew what she did but now I see why she received the death penalty. The Lizzy Borden story I knew a bit off and reading some parts about it I always thought she was guilty. The only thing why she was set free was because back in the days they did not believe a women could do this. Those short stories are great when you are in a reading slump. on Saturday, February 21, 2009 I wrote; Okay Just finished it. The story about William "Cody" Neal rang a bell. I think I read a book about this case. Thanks for sharing. What to read now? I want to get out of this reading slump! Oh well I do have more short stories books. True Crime and Horror. 7.5
