Vernell Loggins Jr.: Convicted of Killing, Dismembering Girlfriend

Killer could face lethal injection.
A jury yesterday recommended the death penalty for Vernell Loggins Jr., a trucker from suburban St. Louis who captured headlines in 2009 when his girlfriend's dismembered body was found outside the Pacific apartment complex where the two lived.

A maintenance worker discovered the headless corpse of Stephanie Fields under bags of ice in a trash can that had been glued shut. Her head was later discovered in the Meramec River. Other body parts were discovered in a nearby woods.

During the trial, the jury saw ghastly photos of Fields' body and evidence showing her blood in every room of the apartment, including the ceiling fan. The St. Louis medical examiner testified that it likely took the 25-year-old mother several minutes to die from the more than two-dozen stab wounds.

Surveillance footage of Loggins purchasing a trash can, glue and carpet cleaner from an area Walmart further tied him to the crime. He also reportedly had prior charges filed against him for stalking and intimidation.

Loggins, 39, did not take the stand during trial. A judge will decide next month whether to take the jury's advice on the death penalty or sentence Loggins to life in prison.

He was my friend. I really don't understand how he could have done this. I haven't seen him since 2000, guess some people do change.

Fuck that unremorsful black bastard. Let me tell u this white black yellow or brown any person that could do what he did to Stephanie deserves to die and answer to his maker. Not even God will forgive this unremorsful bastard. I watched the whole trial in person. He showed no signs of remorse at all. He is a bug eyed murderer. He took a little girls mother out of this world. Did he not remember that she had a daughter and other family members. Funny how his poor mistreated sisters were so abused by their father and Loggins was always there to help .. where was Stephanie's help when he was violantly murdering her. Not those poor abused houngry sisters and mom. They all left didn't even stay for the jury recommendation of life in prison or dealt. Funny Hugh...

The racist comments on here are truly disgusting. You have small minds and the reason you resent blacks so much is because you are so far down the economic ladder yourselves you feel threatened. Whites who can't make it in a white man's world? Face the facts. It's not skin color but poverty that creates throw-backs like this monster. I noticed none of you racist swine are saying a white man would never do this. How come?

The Hood and Black Race Hustlers will tell us:

Vernell was a good man that was good to his girlfriend, good to "hee keedz". Always had a smile and a kind word fo da "utha bruthaz", Was the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back.

And last but not least - He's the victim of raysis, honky, bichass, crakaz that are always keepin da blak man down.

I'm going to go ahead and assume you were once bitch slapped in public by a black man or something of the type which has caused you to take your racial aggressions out in open comment threads. Not sure why you would think that this is racially motivated. Sometimes crazy is just crazy.

Really Race_Hustlers!!! Do you have a daughter?? Would this be the man you would want her to bring home?? He killed Stephanie in cold blood. Trust me...this was not racial. And his child's own mother testified against him stating he had threatened to kill her. The girl was stabbed more than 25 times and then he cut her hand and her arms off and shoved her body in a trash can and threw her out with the trash. Seriously??? You believe this was racial???

I am against the death penalty but I believe he got what he deserved. Stephanie had no idea on that brutal night it would be her last day on this earth. He will live each day wondering if this will be his last.

Face it, before this happened you were his biggest champion, always defending their inter-species relationship. Always there to defend inter-racial relationships as beautiful and blessed by Baby Jeebus and hated by the ray-sis, honky, bichass, crackaz.

Inter-racial relationships are always some useless jig living off a White woman until he murders her in cold blood.

With niggers it's all about their genitals. That's why by overwhelming consensus it's agreed the black race is a MASSIVE failure, a genetic mutation resulting in complete failure, a MASSIVE burden to ALL the others races and when one ends up dead the entire population of Earth benefits.

Well if we're going to stick with stereotypes then I would say that inter racial relationship are really about women wanting a LARGE dick to work with when it's time for some lovin' as apposed to the 4incher your working with. Because whoever came up with that 'motion in the ocean' line only did so to make their small penised partner feel better.

" He will live each day wondering if this will be his last."

No he won't. The liberals and the jews will see to that. He live out his life with three squares a day, Cable Talmudvision, porn mags, cigs and even dope if he wants it.

Every day this happens across America. You'd think it would be a wake up call to the coal haulers not to shack up with these savage black animals but it isn't. They still will weep for "po Dontrell, he beats me because he loves me. He just frustrated at the raysis, honky, bichass, crackaz keeping him down so he takes it out on me boo hoo hoo"

Til death he does part. Ya, right!

Well, let's see how this will likely turn out. Vernell  is sentenced to death in 2012. In 2032, he is still on death row, fat and sassy from taxpayers largess, twiddilng his thumbs, while planning to file his 39th appeal. The prevous 38 cost us taxpayers $25M+ and were all found to be without merit. Finally, in 2057, the U.S. Supreme Court denied his very last appeal. Missouri Gov. Peter Chapman-Kinder, Jr. authorized the execution to proceed. The kind executioners at Bonne Terre Correctional Center were ready to stick the needle in Loggins' arm when,  lo and behold, a new stay of execution was granted stating: Execution denied on the grounds Loggins is too old and senile to know right from wrong, much less remembering a heinous murder he committed 48 years earlier!

And who says our justice system doesn't work!

Or

In 2014 he's paroled by a jewish judge that rules Vernell is the victim of raysis honky bichass crackaz that kept him from becoming a rocket scientist and inventing 2034 uses for the peanut.
