Mothers often say they'd give their lives to save those of their children--but, for Mississippi mother Michelle Byrom, the adage has taken on a rather literal meaning. Byrom is awaiting the day when she will be killed via lethal injection--making her the first female inmate to be executed in the state since 1944. The 57-year-old mom is on death row for allegedly conspiring with her son, Edward Byrom Jr., and his, friend Joey Gillis, to kill her husband, Edward Byrom Sr. The son was given the death penalty in 2000, a year after her husband was shot to death while in his bed. Wait until you find out the details of the grizzly muder … and a son's confession that was never taken into account.

They say that in order to love, you must first learn how to forgive. If that adage is, in fact, true, then Katheryn Deprill has plenty of love to offer. Twenty-seven years ago, as a newborn, Deprill was abandoned by her mother at a Burger King restroom in Allentown, Pennsylvania and, rather than hold on to any anger or resentment, she decided to locate her biological mom--not to chastise, question or berate her, but simply to build a relationship with her.Continue Reading >

A 6-year-old girl in Florida's Palm Beach County was at home--the place she probably considered safest in the world--when her 25-year-old mom, Anuska Monique "Pinky" Dillon, was gunned down by her enraged beau. According to Pembroke Pines police officers, Dillon was shot in the head by her live-in boyfriend, 26-year-old Clifson Cerve, during a dispute in the couple's master bedroom.

Whatever the details, this innocent child was forced to experience the most traumatic thing a child could ever face, the loss of a parent--all because of a man's explosive temper and violent inclinations.Continue Reading >
