20 November 2010 - 11:30 AMThis happened in the town i grew up in. I was very close to the family... Its really hard to be so far away. The funeral was yesterday and I wasnt able to be there. Working in retail really sucks around the holidays. They wouldnt give me the time off work.
"New details are emerging in the case of three teens accused in a plot to kill Mara & Paul Skinner.
Investigators believe it was the couple's adopted daughter Tia, whose wish it was to have them killed.
Tia, Jonathan Kurtz and James Preston are locked up in the St. Clair County jail. They have been charged with open murder, attempted murder and conspiracy. Open murder gives prosecutors the option of amending it later to first-degree murder. Kurtz and Preston are both both 18 and from Avoca. All three will be held without bond at least until a November 23rd hearing.
It was early Friday when police say Preston and Kurtz broke into the Skinner home wearing Halloween masks and stabbed the Skinners who were asleep in bed. The whole time, investigators say Tia was in the basement, fully aware of the horror happening upstairs.
Mara Skinner survived more than 20 stab wounds. Her husband, Paul was killed.
Investigators believe Tia wanted her parents killed because they disapproved of her relationship with Kurtz.
Police say Tia and Kurtz had just started dating two weeks and one day prior to the attacks. They say the plot to kill may have been in the works for more than one week.
When Tia was questioned by police, they say she denied any involvement at first, but within one hour, she confessed and pointed to Preston and Kurtz as the two who carried out the deadly attack.
Police say Mara Skinner, under the circumstances, is recovering pretty well. She is alert and surrounded by loved ones.
George Preston, whose son, James, is one of the suspects, says his family and the family of suspect Jonathan Kurtz, have been receiving death threats. "We've both had to move out of the area", says Preston.
He hopes the death threats will stop and says his heart aches for the Skinner family.
"I pray for them more than me," said Preston. "They lost a whole lot more than I could imagine."
He says he has been blindsided by the news of his son's alleged involvement.
All three suspects are expected back in court on November 23rd.
Meanwhile, the Yale community is coming together in the wake of this tragedy. A crowd of parents and students gathered at Yale High School Sunday night for the first of several crisis meetings.
The school district's superintendent says the meetings are designed to help folks cope with the horrific attack.
Mara is a popular computers and social studies teacher at Yale's junior high."
Its been a week since and im still having a really hard time sleeping. its gotten slightly better, i dont think about it as much as i did. But ive a knew fear of knives.. I cant touch them. And i cant stand looking at them. Someone at work was joking around with me and said she was going to stab me, and i just started crying. She felt really awful because she had no idea. But. I needed another source to talk about it. Wills been good about comforting me, but i dont know how to not think about it. I see these awful images of what i imagined things to have played out, everytime i close my eyes.
All three people involved confessed. Tia, the daughter, is actually the couples niece, her biological parents died when she was younger and her aunt and uncle adopted her. All of this happened because of a boy she had been seeing for a WEEK. A FRAGing week. Her parents didnt like him and said she couldnt see him so she planned to kill them. They dont tell this in the news article, but I found out from the family that this was all meant for just the mom, Mara. Paul was supposed to be out playing cards. Tia left the window open and cut the screen out for the two boys to come into the house. They got the knives from the kitchen, went upstairs and etc. Paul managed to fight his way out of bed and get one of the boys in a chokehold, while the boy repeatedly stabbed him in the abdomen. The other boy left Mara to go help his friend and started stabbing Paul in the back. Mara was able to get up and turn the light on. Im not sure how but Paul fought them down the stairs and out of the house before their son Jeff ran up from the basement.

First tattoo. I
heldcrushed Wills hand the whole time. And it sucked. But it was worth it. The pic was taken literally 2 mins after it was done, there's alot of redness showing through the pink.

01 July 2010 - 08:42 AMHahah funny guys. No babies anytime soon, none planned at least. Marriage... ha well he has to pop the question before that happens.
And so far we arent living together. Im staying with this amazing family, and once school starts ill either be living in dorms, or hopefully student apartments which Will and i would be able to share.
And, its VERY odd knowing i can call him and say "come pick me up" and hes there in 5 mins... Not 8 hours.. Haha.
