Texas Prepares To Execute Convicted Killer Of 12-Year-Old Girl
HUNTSVILLE (June 29, 2010)--The discovery of Jonathan Green's wallet in a wooded area near clothing and jewelry that belonged to a missing 12-year-old Montgomery County girl is what prompted police to question Green, a laborer who lived alone in a shack.
But it wasn’t until a month later, in July 2000, when a neighbor's report about an unusually large trash fire sent investigators back to Green's dilapidated home about 50 miles northwest of Houston.
A police cadaver dog led detectives inside the house where the remains of Christina LeAnn Neal were found wrapped in a blanket and stuffed into a bag behind a piece of furniture.
Neal had been missing since June 21, 2000.
Authorities say Green initially buried the slain girl’s body in his backyard, but later dug it up and placed it behind a chair in his shack.
Green, 42, is scheduled to die just after 6 p.m. Wednesday for abducting, raping and strangling the girl whose residence was nearby his rural home.
