A champion of reporting on cases involving children, Donchais has also covered the Haut de la Garenne case across the pond in Jersey, the Michael Jacques case in Vermont (accused of murdering Brooke Bennett) as well as the Earl Bradley, M.D. molestation case in Deleware. In her coverage of the Anthony trial, Donchais always brings her unique style and wicked humor in analyzing the nuances of all the individuals involved in the case.

If you've never read Kim before, you are in for a surprise treat. Kim used to blog about living in Malone, a small town in upstate New York, her quirky neighbors and her husband Paul with his "Harley Barn." When she started writing about the first Phil Spector trial, Kim gave her readers spot-on analysis of the legal issues as well as hands-down, the best wit and sarcasm about the players involved anywhere. During that first trial, I used to print out her entries for the late Dominick Dunne to read because he told me he just loved her writing. Don't even stop to think about it. Run to her blog to get the best laughs you will have had in years.
