Sandra Layne (75) has been sentenced to life in prison, after being found guilty of second degree murder, for allegedly shooting and killing her 17 year old grandson Jonathon (Jon) Hoffman. Police say she shot him 6 times, including twice in the back, while he was living with her in her West Bloomfield condo, near Detroit MI. The bad granny testified that she had become afraid of Jon in the last month that he was living with her, and that she’d bought a Glock handgun. Things came to a head on May 18 last year, when Jon threatened to run away after testing positive to synthetic marijuana. That’s when bad granny went upstairs, grabbed the Glock, and shot Jon. Even as he dialled 911, screaming that his grandma shot him, she continued to fire, filling his lean young body with six hollow-point bullets.

Bad granny’s own daughter and the mother of Jon, Jennifer Hoffman condemned her mother’s actions, saying “Sandra Layne is pure evil and, if given the opportunity, would surely kill again,” and “Sandra Layne deserves the maximum penalty allowed. Please do not show mercy on her. She showed no mercy when she planned, stalked, ambushed and murdered my son in his bedroom.”

The reason why Jon was living with his grandma was because his younger sister Jessica was being treated for a brain tumour. Jon went to live with his grandma so that he could continue to go to school and reclaim some stability and normalcy. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now they have to deal with the fact that a beloved, trusted mother and grandmother shot their child dead. Bad granny even had the nerve to blame Jon’s parents for her cold murder of her grandson.

“I would have never let (Jonathan Hoffman) come here. I would have told his parents ‘It’s your responsibility to help him.’ I see my daughter and the pain she’s experiencing. My heart breaks for her. I know what I’ve done. There isn’t a moment in my life I don’t feel that pain.” – Sandra Layne.

Earlier she said that Jon’s parents ignored her pleas to take Jon with them. During that statement and a few others, Mrs Hoffman was seen to be whispering “She’s lying”. Michael Hoffman reflected on Jon, as a strong and independent young man, who did things “the Jon way”. He said he was looking forward to seeing the man that Jon would become. Now that’s all been taken away from him by Sandra Layne.

He also related the effect that Jon’s murder has had on his family, “My beautiful daughter (Jessica, who underwent surgery for a brain tumor) now has a hole in her heart to match the hole in her head,” he wrote.

“Death is final, and my prison is every bit as confining as that which Sandra Layne soon will inhabit.”

Jon could not have been that threatening, if bad granny had time to run up the stairs to grab her gun. If she had time for that, she had time to call the police if she felt she was in danger. Not to mention the fact that she kept shooting him even after he’d tried to call 911. If she really did need to shoot (say he was coming at her with a knife), surely a leg shot would have been enough to fell him? And shots to the back indicates that she either snuck up on him and shot him, or he turned away from her to flee, and she shot him some more. Either way, what kind of coward shoots at someone in the back? This was not an act of self defence. Granny had simply had enough of him being around and waited for the perfect opportunity to get rid of him. The poor kid was messed up because his sister was critically ill, needed understanding and love, did some pot to forget his troubles (not a great idea) but that did not warrant being shot dead. Due to the 40-60 year jail sentence, it’s very unlikely that she will ever live to see freedom. She will die in prison.


Rest in Peace, Jon. You did it “Jon’s Way”

Judge Drops the Ball, 8 year Old Dies as a Result



DHS wanted 8-year-old removed from mother’s care before death

Records show court refused to remove Tameria Greene from home

This is one rare story where DHS actually attempted to do their job and attempted to keep a murderous bitch of a mother away from her sweet child, but failed because some dickwad judge and court referee over-rode their recommendation.  DHS had been involved with 8 year old Tameria Greene since she was 6 years old and had recommended in November 2012 that the child and her four brothers be removed from an allegedly abusive environment. Unfortunately, because these asshats failed to oblige to DHS’s request, Tameria died on December 30th… less than two months after DHS made the request.


Tameria’s mother, 26 year old Semeria Greene, was charged with felony murder and child abuse last week as a result of the events on December 30th. On that fateful day, police were called to the residence only to find Tameria’s monster performing CPR on the little girl, who was unresponsive lying on the living room floor.  She was then rushed to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The doctors told police that, aside from the stab wound, she also had bruises, possible bite marks, and deep scratches to her face. The monster stated that the little girl was making sandwiches and had an “accident” which caused her to get stabbed in the chest. However, upon further investigation, police found no evidence of the phantom sandwiches.  That, paired with the other injuries that the girl sustained, they called bullshit and hauled the monster off to jail. Sources have stated that the monster took a knife to her daughter after a fight with her boyfriend.


This case is even more depressing ,and I know that DHS, CPS, etc gets ragged on for dropping the ball a lot of the time (mainly because they do, A LOT) but this is one case that the courts screwed this child because the idiot court ref stated that DHS had not proven that Tameria was in danger, even though they had doctor’s notes to corroborate the story in the November 23rd hearing. In 2010, the children were removed from the home because they had been left alone with no food in a house that was in total disarray, while the children sat in soiled nasty diapers. Tameria’s brothers are currently in DHS’s custody, but the paternal grandmother says she is trying to gain custody of the other children. Prayers go out to the family, as it appears they truly tried to stop this monster with no avail.


R.I.P Tameria, your smile is that of an angel. It is sad that you earned your angel wings too early.

Thanks go to all who sent this one in.
