    IA - Three adults, 2 children found in shallow graves, Mason City, 1993

    Federal prosecutors claim it was roughly two months later, in September 2000, that Johnson drew a map for a jailhouse informant and inadvertently pointed government authorities to the bodies of five people missing since 1993...

    U.S. authorities say Honken, a 35-year-old Britt native and methamphetamine maker, was facing a 10-year prison term in July 1993 when he and then-girlfriend Johnson talked their way into the home of Lori Duncan.

    Testimony last year showed that Duncan and her two daughters, ages 10 and 6, were abducted on July 29, 1993, along with Greg Nicholson, a former drug dealer for Honken who had recently turned federal informant. All four bodies, all shot at least once, later turned up in single grave in a field near Mason City.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Angela Johnson of Klemme, described by prosecutors as a ruthless accomplice in the execution-style slayings of five people in 1993, was sentenced to death today on eight of 10 counts in her federal murder trial.

    Johnson was given the same sentence as her former boyfriend, Dustin Honken, who was convicted last year of killing the five people, including two young children, to disrupt an investigation into his methamphetamine enterprise.

    Jurors deliberated about 10 hours over two days.

    Iowa does not have the death penalty, and the cases mark the first time since 1963 that a death sentence has been considered in the state. Federal prosecutors sought the death penalty for Johnson because of the killing of federal witnesses and children and the heinous nature of the crimes.

    A woman was sentenced to death Tuesday for helping her former boyfriend kill five people, including two children, in an attempt to thwart an investigation of the man's methamphetamine business...

    U.S. District Judge Mark Bennett said last week he was bound by law to issue the sentence a jury recommended in June, but was "troubled by the lack of certainty in the record concerning the precise involvement" of Johnson in the crimes.

    Nicholson, Lori Duncan and her daughters, ages 6 and 10, disappeared in 1993;[/b] prosecutors said Johnson had posed as a cosmetics saleswoman to gain access to Duncan's home.
