    VA - Tomeka Childs, 26, shot to death, Stafford County, 22 Feb 2005

    A Stafford County man admitted yesterday that he killed his live-in girlfriend while their two small children listened in a nearby room.

    James Anthony Johnson, 27, pleaded guilty in Stafford Circuit Court to first-degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. Johnson killed 26-year-old Tomeka M. Childs the morning of Feb. 22 at a home they shared on Heron Drive in southern Stafford. He will face a life sentence...

    Prosecutor Jim Peterson said that the last thing Childs' small children heard before she died was her screaming, "Please don't kill me!" Childs was shot four times with a Tech 9 semiautomatic handgun. The fatal shot was a "contact" shot to the top of her head, Peterson said.

    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?
