Kerry is an innocent woman currently living on Death Row in California.
In March of 1995 she was convicted of 1st degree murder with special circumstances.
She was sent to wait for execution in June '95.
She pleaded innocent and still maintains her innocence.
The jury found guilt without a body, without any weapon, without any crime scene evidence, and even without blood evidence (therefore no ability to have DNA testing for exoneration).
The case was built on a missing person's report (phoned in anonymously; the woman's husband swore in court she had run off like she'd done more than once before) and based on the words of informants,and snitches, all hearsay testimony.
Some sources can be found that state Kerry had confessed; those refer to the hearsay testimony from jailhouse snitches who claimed Kerry told them she committed murder. She has never made any such statement.
Her first attempt to gain an appeal is still in the process after 16 years.
