On July 12, Elizabeth Escalona, 23, pleaded guilty to first-degree injury to a child after admitting to beating her 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn and gluing her hands to a wall in September of last year. The Dallas mom’s three other children witnessed the abuse, which resulted in bleeding of the brain, a fractured rib and severe bruising. In a sentencing hearing scheduled for today, she faces a possible life sentence.
Preteen Andrea Wilborn died a cruel and violent death in the wine cellar of her family’s mansion. The killer had her kneel on the floor of the cellar and shot her in the back of the head, execution-style. Within hours, police had a description of the killer and a single suspect T. Cullen Davis, one of the richest men in America and the model for the villainous J.R. Ewing on the nighttime soap opera “Dallas.”
