Prosecutor outraged over decision giving mom convicted in Iowa slaying prison visits with kids – The Washington Post

IOWA CITY, Iowa — A mother serving life in prison for murder must be allowed to see her children, who were in the rural Iowa home during the execution-style killing of their neighbor, a judge decided in a ruling that outraged the prosecutor in the case.

Murdering Mother Gets Visitation Rights

Tracey Richter shot and killed her neighbor in an elaborate hoax to frame her husband. She shot her neighbor feet away from her children who were in another room. Now a judge has ordered her ex-husband to take their kids to visit her 3 times a year. Her husband has moved to a California city to rebuild their lives and is in disbelief that Tracey should be able to see their children after all the harm she put them in.


  1. What’s the matter with this judge? The woman’s husband should fight this tooth and nail, and the judge should be recalled from the bench. Children do not need contact with a mother who’s a murderous monster. They need to shed any association with her in order to grow up feeling good about themselves.

  2. That is outrageous. She lost her right to her children when she murdered her neighbor.
