Verdict/Urteil:
News on Serial Killer John Edward ROBINSON sr.
Harvey Miguel Robinson is thought to be one of the youngest serial killers in history. Joan Burghardt, a 29-year-old nurse's aide, was Robinson's first victim. She was raped and bludgeoned in her east Allentown home in August 1992. In June 1993, Robinson abducted, raped and stabbed 15-year-old newspaper carrier Charlotte Schmoyer (pictured). One of Charlotte's regular newspaper customers noticed Charlotte's cart outside her front window, but when she saw no signs of the girl, she called the offices of the Morning Call. Charlotte's supervisors could not locate her, and they contacted the police. That same afternoon, Charlotte's body was found in a heavily wooded area nearby. Charlotte had been raped and stabbed over 20 times. The next month, Robinson raped and strangled 47-year-old grandmother Jessica Jean Fortney. Another victim, Denise Sam-Cali, who was beaten and raped in her home shortly after Schmoyer's killing, escaped alive. Robinson repeatedly returned to her house. On July 31, a police officer who was waiting for Denise's attacker exchanged gunfire with Robinson. Robinson was tracked to a local hospital, where he had sought treatment for injuries. Linked to the three killings by DNA evidence, Robinson was convicted in November 1994 and sentenced to death in all three cases. Just 19 at the time, he was thought to be one of the youngest serial killers in the nation's history. In June 2001, Lehigh County Judge Edward Reibman upheld Robinson's murder convictions but threw out the death sentences in the Burghardt and Schmoyer killings, saying the trial judge had given improper sentencing instructions to the jury. In December 2004, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court affirmed the death sentence in the Fortney case and the first-degree murder convictions in the other cases, which are now back in Lehigh County Court. Gladys Burghardt says she can no longer afford to dwell on the murderous specter of the man who killed her daughter. ''I'm 83 now and it's not beneficial to my health, or my husband's health, to dwell on it. We only have a short time left, and we need to make the most of it.'' When Gladys and her husband, Stanley heard that Governor Ed Rendell had set an execution date for Robinson of April 4, Gladys said, ''This is something that's been waiting to happen, that this monster is put out of the world.'' However, the setting of the execution date is simply a formality and will lead to a stay while the next phase of appeals is carried out. ''I wish they would get it over with,'' said Gladys Burghardt, who is baffled by the notion that the killer has been able to escape execution this long. ''What good is the legal system if it doesn't carry out its threats?'' she said. ''How can someone like Harvey Robinson control the legal system?'' Denise Sam-Cali, who owns a Lehigh Valley transportation company, said she spends little time thinking about Robinson. ''We move on,'' she said. ''He's useless to society, so if they do put him to death, there's no loss.''

Verdict/Urteil:
 
On October 20, 1946, Olive Balchin, age 40, was found dead at a World War II bomb site in Manchester, England, her skull crushed with a hammer left at the scene. Descriptions of a suspect seen with the woman led authorities to Rowland, whose criminal record included a prior conviction for child-murder. At his trial, Rowland was convicted of the slaying despite a confession from Liverpool jail inmate David John Ware. Sentenced to die, Rowland was hanged at Strangways prison on February 27, 1947. Ware, his would-be benefactor, was confined to an asylum in 1951, after trying to murder another woman.
