    GA - Susan, 41, & Kimberly Pittman, 13, murdered, Savannah, 11 April 2002

    This trial started here in Savannah today. These two are sick and twisted criminals. A close friend was interviewed for Jury Duty for this trial but was not selected due to her anti death penalty beliefs.

    The man accused of killing a Savannah mother and daughter before setting their Whitfield Avenue house on fire claims to have videotaped parts of his assault on the 13-year-old.

    In a 24-page letter to an inmate he met at the Chatham County jail, Dorian Frank O'Kelley said he propped a video camera on a shelf in Susan and Kimberly Pittman's home in order to get clear shots of the attack.

    The Pittmans' charred remains were discovered in April 2002.
    .....................
    Von Lowenfeldt's application reveals O'Kelley also wrote about "how he raped, sodomized, tortured and killed Kimberly Pittman," according to the warrant application, which was filed with the clerk of court. He wrote that he'd retrieved the camera from the trunk of a car.

    Neither Chief Assistant District Attorney David Lock nor defense attorneys Michael Edwards or Brian Daly could comment about the possibility of any video because Judge Bass issued a gag order prohibiting anyone involved in the case from speaking about it.

    Two weeks ago, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled unanimously to exclude a detailed confession O'Kelley made to detectives after he'd requested an attorney during a routine court hearing.

    Prosecutors, however, likely will try to introduce the letter into evidence.

    O'Kelley wrote the letter to Chris Bowen, who is now incarcerated in state prison. The two met while both were assigned to the same unit at the county jail

    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?

    From May 2008:

    http://www.wsav.com/story/20694252/c...death-sentence

    In 2005, a jury convicted O’Kelley of the malice murders of Susan and Kimberly Pittman, as well as cruelty to children, arson, burglary and other crimes. Following the sentencing phase, the jury found he qualified for the death penalty due to several aggravating circumstances, which included that the murders were “outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible or inhuman.”
    From March 2010:

    http://savannahnow.com/latest-news/2...ttman-daughter

    A jury selected in Macon convicted Stinski, then 23, in Savannah of killing Pittman, 421, and her 13-year-old daughter, Kimberly, during a burglary at their Whitfield Avenue home April 10, 2002. Stinski then burned the house to the ground to conceal the crimes. The jury recommended the death sentence for Stinski...

    They attacked Pittman first, beating her with a flashlight, a walking cane and a lamp. During the attack, Pittman was stabbed three or four times in the chest and abdomen. When Kimberly Pittman awoke to her mother’s screams, Stinski took the child upstairs where he bound her wrists and gagged her. While Stinski went downstairs to search for items to steal, O’Kelley went upstairs where he raped the girl.

    Stinski went upstairs where he hit Kimberly Pittman in the head with a baseball bat as she knelt on the floor, the trial record showed. O’Kelley slit her throat with a knife, Stinski then hit her in the knee with the bat and O’Kelley tried to suffocate her before stabbing her in the torso and legs. After kicking her and throwing things at her, the pair set the pair set the house afire while she was still alive.
