    Default Family Values: Mother-Daughter Crime Team Stabbed Elderly Man to Death for $15

    PASADENA, Texas — Two teenage girls are accused of stabbing a 75-year-old man to death in a robbery that netted them just $15, and police say the mother of one of the teens helped put them up to it.

    Dannette R. Gillespie, 38, gave knives to her 15-year-old daughter and Vanessa Anne Ocampo, 19, then waited in the back seat of their car while the teens robbed and killed Eugene Palma, according to a probable cause warrant.

    All three were charged with capital murder Friday. It was not immediately clear if they had attorneys.

    Palma, a bar owner, was found stabbed several times in the driveway of his suburban Houston home Wednesday. He did not know the women, Pasadena police said.

    Ocampo told police the three had been looking for someone to rob that morning, according to the warrant.

    "He would've given them money — that's the crazy thing," Kim Nawrot, a bartender at Palma's bar, told the Houston Chronicle. "He was the kind of guy that would've given anyone the shirt off of his back."

    Gillespie and her daughter, who is not being identified because she is a juvenile, were arrested in Pasadena. Ocampo was arrested in San Antonio. They were being held without bond.

    Ocampo told investigators they went to the bar and followed Palma home when he left. Gillespie handed knives to her daughter and Ocampo and "encouraged them to commit the robbery," police said.

    Gillespie's daughter and Ocampo ran to Palma's garage and stabbed him several times. They went through Palma's pockets and car in search of money and Ocampo took $15, according to the document.

    Gillespie allegedly waited in the back seat of the car for them and got rid of the knives. A palm print on the driver's side door of Palma's car led police to the women, authorities said.

    Man. I sure hope that $15 was worth it. Senseless.

    In a way, I feel sorry for the daughter. With a mother like that, what kind of a chance did she ever have?

    For $15, they are not going to get a very good lawyer.

    sometimes i think there should be a mandatory test that must be passed by all prospective parents before they have kids. You need a lincence to drive a car but any moron can have children. What's with these f-ing people?

    I agree w/you. Same standard should be applied to the mother of Caylee.

    You are SO RIGHT, but unfortunately it will never happen. All of the productive, reasonable individuals will continue to be burdened by individuals that should have never been created. Sorry to say something like that, but it is true.

    no reason to be sorry when it's the truth. I know it'll never happen, people get mad when government tells us to do anything - I imagine the won't be thrilled with government telling us when we can/can't have kids.

    I just wish people would be a little more responsible with their choices. People should only have kids when they're ready to have kids. If you're never ready - then don't f-ing have them. You'll be better off and society would be better off.
