Although it happened 15 years ago, prior to her getting married and having a child, Darnesha Paulita Berry, 35, has to answer to the double murder of a twin boy and girl found in the trash at the Holt Hall dorm at St Paul’s College in Virginia in February 1998. She was a student at the college at the time.
A cold case team opened up the investigation of the infants’ murders. According to the state medical examiner’s office, they both died of blunt-force trauma to the head before being tossed down a trash chute. The story ran on TV. Numerous tips and DNA evidence led them to Berry, who works at a bank part time. She is being held at Meherrin River Regional Jail in Alberta, Va.
