Pornographic pictures of children and her. Seeing the pictures, she was shocked and at the same time, it reminded her of abuse at the hands of her father. For years her father used her as a sex slave and raped hundreds of times.

In a court hearing, she said, "I could feel a black cloud appearing over me," She also added in a haze of disgust and disbelief, she picked up a shovel she had been gardening with and walked into the living room where my father was standing.

Even before thinking twice she picked up the shovel and hit her father 87-year-old man, Kenneth Coombes. Then she used shovel's sharp blade and slit his throat and waited till he bled to death.

Then she wrapped her dead father's body in a discarded rug and took it to the backyard and hid the body behind a tree. The very next day, she bought about 2,000 pounds of soil and buried the body in a covert grave.
