||Based on a true story, a freak spring snow storm is the
setting for one of the most abominable and evil crimes ever committed in
the quiet central Pennsylvania town of Altoona. April 21, 1936 will long
be remembered not only for the record-setting storm, but for the brutal
slaying of three-year-old Matthew Karmendi at his motherís own hand.
Follow the chronology of this heinous crime in the actual newspaper
accounts and court transcripts from the initial apprehension and arrest of
Margaret Karmendi and her lover, Roy Lockard, through their subsequent
trials for murder.
