    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
