Hartsfield's history of alleged assaults and murders
Hartsfield who has been married five times, fatally shot her ex-fiance David Bragg in 2018. The case was re-opened for investigation by Minnesota officers while the woman was behind bars in Chambers County Jail.
Apparently, while Hartsfield is locked up in Chambers County Jail, investigators in Minnesota have re-opened a probe into the death of her ex-fiance David Bragg, who she shot and killed in 2018. However, the new evidence found in the case has not been disclosed by the investigators.
In March 1996, Hartsfield was arrested after she was accused of attacking her second husband, Michael Traxler at their home in Rio Bonito. The charges were later dropped after she was locked up in jail for a week.
'I am glad she has finally been caught for who she is'
Talking to ABC13, Titus Knoernschild, first husband of the alleged murderer previously responded to the news of her arrest as he stated, "I am glad she has finally been caught for who she is. I’m just sorry another person had to die to get her caught."
"I knew she’d end up in jail someday. So she cheated on things. She would steal money from people. So I knew she would end up getting caught eventually. That was always my hope. But unfortunately, she’s turned to [allegedly] murder. And that’s what she’s facing now," he added.
"It’s unreal seeing my mom in that jumpsuit now. I’ve waited for it my whole life," said Hartsfield's son Ryan Donohue from her third marriage. From Hartsfield's jail cell, the outlet obtained notes written by her. One of the notes read her statement to the judge where she fired her lawyer and demanded a replacement. The next note read her seeking a reduced bond as she cannot afford the bond amount of $4.5 million and also alleged that she has been confined illegally.
