Indictments and guilty pleas in WV torture case

2 plead guilty, 5 others indicted in torture case:

A lot of news coming out of West Virginia lately in the kidnap and torture case of Megan Williams. If you’re not familiar with the case you can see my first post about it here or this search which shows the bulk of the posts related to the case.

Anyway…

A Logan County grand jury handed up indictments Tuesday charging Bobby Brewster, 24; his mother, Frankie Brewster, 49, of Big Creek; Danny Combs, 20, of Harts; Karen Burton, 46, of Chapmanville; and her son, Linnie Burton Jr., in the case.

Two other defendants — Karen Burton’s daughter, 23-year-old Alisha Burton, and 27-year-old George A. Messer — each pleaded guilty Friday to one count of kidnapping and one count of assault during the commission of a felony. Messer and Alisha Burton, both of Chapmanville, were each sentenced to concurrent prison terms of 10 years on the kidnapping charge and 2 to 10 years on the assault charge, Logan County Prosecuting Attorney Brian Abraham said.

Karen Burton is the only defendant charged with a hate crime. She also was indicted on kidnapping and malicious wounding charges.

Burton allegedly used the N-word as she stabbed Williams in the ankle, Abraham said.

Personally I could care less about the color of the victim or the perpetrators. The only thing I care about is justice being served for the sick depraved things these scumbags did to Megan Williams that you only normally see in over the top horror movies.

Was Megan Williams given a chance to leave?

And should it matter?

Torture suspect’s sister says victim given chance to leave:

Christie Messer, the sister of torture suspect George Messer, says that Megan Williams was given the chance to leave but didn’t take it.

Christie Messer said she let Williams out of the bedroom. She gave her the keys to her car and told her to go to the car, but Williams refused to leave, she said.

“She said, ‘I don’t want to go. I love Bobby [Brewster].’

I’ve read reports that said that Megan Williams had a learning disability which may have clouded her judgment but not only that how many times have people done stupid things in the name of love. Anyway, none of that means that she was responsible for her own torture. The Clampetts on crack were still the ones who cut her up, beat her, and molested her and still deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Torture victim held captive for a month

Police Say Williams Abused for More Than a Month:

Police are now stating that Megan Williams was held captive for a month, not a week, by the Deliverance Reject Family from West Virginia.

Megan Williams went into the trailer home in Logan County where police say she was raped, beaten and tortured on Aug. 2, according to court testimony heard on Tuesday. Bobby Ray Brewster, 24, one of the six suspects in the case, got out of jail on Aug. 2 on charges he hit and threatened Williams, according to testimony from a Logan County sheriff’s deputy.

So the first thing Cletus does is when he gets out of lock-up is to kidnap somebody.

New charges have been filed as well…

Besides Brewster, the others charged include his mother, 49-year-old Frankie Lee Brewster. Also on Tuesday, the original charges against suspect Frankie Brewster were amended to include first degree sexual assault, giving false information during the commission of a felony, kidnapping and three counts of misdemeanor battery.

More details of the abuse…

During the hearing, prosecuting attorneys presented a fly swatter, a knife and a wooden stick. Lawyers told the court the suspects used the implements to beat Williams. Each impliment had red and brown stains, but they will all be tested to determined what the material is. Deputies also testified that Williams went willingly to the home, but the suspects would later refuse to let her leave.

And more of the family’s stellar record…

The suspects had lengthy criminal records In 1994, Frankie Brewster was indicted on first degree murder charges, but pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of an 84-year old woman. In March of this year, her son Bobby Brewster, was charged with brandishing a deadly weapon. Last year he was charged with battery on a police officer. Combs’ criminal history includes a malicious wounding charge in 2006. Messer has several domestic violence charges, including second offense domestic assault and burglary. Karen Burton and her daughter Alisha have also been arrested on numerous occasions. Karen Burton has been charged with assault on a police officer. Her daughter was charged with domestic assault in May.

It’s amazing that this family of scumbags were even out on the streets.

I guess this was bound to happen

Groups press for hate-crime charges in woman’s alleged torture:

First let me tell you my stance on hate crime legislation. Personally I think all violent crimes are hate crimes but I’m not opposed to any legislation that keeps criminal scumbags behind bars longer.

Now let’s get to the story.

Representatives of several black churches appealed to prosecutors Thursday to pursue hate-crime or civil-rights charges against six white people accused of torturing a black woman over several days.

Normally I would agree with them but this is a special case. Like I’ve mentioned before the kidnapping and sexual assault charges carry more weight than the hate crime charges. The church leaders should be more concerned about justice being done than having prosecutors file charges that at this point would be nothing more than symbolic in nature.

While black church leaders are calling for marches and protests the NAACP is taking a wait and see approach…

The NAACP said it was monitoring the case. “We expect the authorities to do the right thing in bringing the responsible parties involved in these despicable and heinous events to justice with the full weight of the law,” Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP National Board of Directors, said in a statement.

Remember the kidnapping charges carry a max life sentence and the sexual assault charge carries a max of 35 years. The hate crime charges only carry 10 years. Let them secure the kidnapping conviction first then file hate crime charges.

WV Torture follow up

A ton of news has come out about the kidnapping and torturing of Megan Williams. I’m going to bring you all the “highlights” that I have.

Brewster relative says Frankie and Bobby have had a hard life:

I was wondering how long it would take for this one to come out. Like it could possibly excuse what these monsters did.

Carrie Brewster confirmed that when he was 14, Bobby Brewster was accused of fatally shooting his father, Bisha Tomblin, in 1998. Other than that, the grandmother didn’t want to talk about her grandson’s or daughter’s criminal pasts.

Boo freakin’ Hoo. To me that just means that Bobby Brewster should have been locked up a long time ago.

Magistrate says torture suspect revealed plans to kill victim:

Apparently the Clampetts on Crack were planning on killing Megan Williams.

One of the six defendants charged in the weeklong torture of a Charleston woman allegedly told a magistrate the group planned to take the woman to an area lake and kill her.

Logan County Magistrate Leonard Codispoti says 49-year-old Frankie Brewster blurted out the planned killing during her arraignment this weekend.

Not the sharpest tools in the shed are they?

W.Va. Victim Knew Torture Suspect:

Megan Williams knew at least one of her attackers…

One of the six suspects arrested in the case, Bobby Brewster, had a previous relationship with the victim, Logan County Prosecutor Brian Abraham told The Associated Press. He said Brewster had been charged in July with domestic battery and assault after a domestic dispute involving the same woman.

“She obviously had some sort of social relationship,” Abraham said. “That is based on the fact that she was present at his residence on a prior date.”

I don’t care if they were knockin’ boots. I don’t care that Ms. Williams may not have been willing to get out of an abusive relationship. There is nothing you can say to me that is going to make disparage the victim. What was done to her was not even in the realm of humanity. It was more like being attacked by a pack of wild mangy filthy dogs.

No Hate Crime Charges in Torture Case:

Now before everyone gets their panties in a wad it’s not because authorities believe this wasn’t a hate crime. However the kidnapping and sexual assault charges carry stiffer sentences. While the hate crime statute only carries a max sentence of 10 years the sexual assault statue carries a max of 35 years and the kidnapping statute carries a max of life. Personally I think these rejects from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre should get death but WV does not have the death penalty.

Locals: Torture Suspects Were Trouble:

Surprise surprise. The neighbors weren’t too fond of the white trash De Sade family.

Charlotte and Roy Williams tried to avoid their neighbors, a rowdy bunch who blared music for days on end. But the noise may have been the least of their offenses.

“If I knowed that was happening up there, I would have gone up there myself to try and help that girl,” said Roy Williams, who is not related to Megan Williams.

Police tape remained at the scene in Big Creek, and empty beer cans filled a rusting shopping cart next to the mobile home. An empty TV dinner tray collected rainwater near the front door.

Like many in Big Creek, Roy Williams, 61, and his wife, Charlotte, 49, avoided the property.

“We know everyone over here in this area – except them,” Charlotte Williams said. “We didn’t want to know them.”

Since 1991, police have filed 108 criminal charges against the six.

Frankie Brewster was charged in 1994 with first-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to lesser charges of manslaughter and wanton endangerment. She was released from prison in 2000 after serving five years in the death of an 84-year-old woman, court records show.

Bobby Brewster was accused in March of attacking his mother with a machete, according to court records. The outcome of those charges domestic assault, brandishing a deadly weapon and obstructing an officer – was not immediately clear.

He also faces domestic battery and assault charges after a dispute involving Megan Williams in July. A court date has not yet been set.

The Brewsters were constantly fighting, drinking and disrupting the otherwise quiet hollow in southern West Virginia, Roy and Charlotte Williams said.

“Sometimes we’d hear music playing really loud,” Charlotte Williams said. “We could tell you what the words to the song was, it was so clear. It would go for three or four days, 24 hours a day sometimes.”

Quite literally the neighbors from hell. I hope they go back there soon.

6 Arrested in West Virginia After Woman Abused, Held Captive in House for a Week:

LOGAN, W.Va. â?? A woman was sexually abused, beaten and humiliated while being held captive in a home for at least a week, sheriff’s officials said Monday after making six arrests and calling the FBI to investigate it as a possible hate crime.

Those arrested, including a mother and son and a mother and daughter, are white. The victim, a Charleston woman who was being treated at a hospital Monday, is black.

Deputies found the 23-year-old victim Saturday after going to the home in Big Creek, about 35 miles southwest of Charleston, to investigate an anonymous tip. One of the suspects, Frankie Brewster, was sitting on the front porch and told deputies she was alone, but moments later the victim limped toward the door, her arms outstretched, saying “help me,” the sheriff’s department said in a news release.

Besides being sexually assaulted, the victim was stabbed four times in the left leg and beaten, Porter said. Both of her eyes were black and blue. Deputies said the woman’s wounds were inflicted at least a week ago.

During her capture, the victim was forced to eat rat and dog feces and drink from the toilet, according to the criminal complaint filed in magistrate court. The woman also was choked with a cable cord and her hair cut, it alleges.

One of those arrested, Karen Burton, is accused of cutting the woman’s ankle with a knife. She used the N-word in telling the woman she was victimized because she is black, according to the criminal complaint.

Deputies say the woman was also doused with hot water while being sexually assaulted.

The six suspects were arrested Saturday and Sunday. Deputies were still trying to determine whether the victim knew her assailants and how she came to be at Brewster’s home, Porter said.

Frankie Brewster, 49, is charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, malicious wounding and giving false information during a felony investigation. Deputies said she was the woman on the porch.

Her son, Bobby R. Brewster, 24, is charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, malicious wounding and assault during the commission of a felony.

Burton, 46, of Chapmanville, is charged with malicious wounding, battery and assault during the commission of a felony.

Her daughter Alisha Burton, 23, of Chapmanville, and George A. Messer, 27, of Chapmanville, are charged with assault during the commission of a felony and battery.

Danny J. Combs, 20, of Harts, is charged with sexual assault and malicious wounding.

Just when you think people like this were a dying breed some ignorant sadistic fucktards rear their ugly inbred heads.
