Twins to fight parole of women who killed their mother 30 years ago. (Wichita Eagle)

It was about 1:30 a.m. after a slow night when two robbers entered Church’s Fried Chicken on North Broadway as Julie Rosenhamer, the manager, and two employees were preparing to close. The robbers jumped over the counter and ordered Rosenhamer to open the safe. One of the employees later testified that Rosenhamer put her hands on the counter and was getting ready to turn around when she was shot in the chest. The two other employees were locked in the freezer, and the robbers escaped with $118 in cash and the purse of one of the victims.

Yvonne Pink and Regina Baldwin were convicted of all charges.

Identical twins Kelley Malone and Brooke Koenig were 3 when their mother was shot to death on May 3, 1983. Their father had died in a car crash five months earlier, so they were left orphans.

The twins were raised by their grandmother in Kansas City, while an older sister and brother went to different households.

Over the past 30 years, they have heard stories about what happened to their mother, Julie Rosenhamer, on that Tuesday morning. Now, for the first time, they are preparing to oppose the parole of the two women who were convicted of her murder.

“Thirty years is a long time, but 30 years doesn’t heal the damage [Baldwin who is the first to come up for parole] did,” Malone said. “I’d like her to stay in longer than 30 years. I’d like both of them to.”

“Growing up, all four of us were traumatized,” Koenig said. “What happened then still affects us today.”
---
Malone and Koenig both say they have no memory of their mother.
