Ronell Wilson was convicted of killing two undercover police officers and sentenced to death. His nighttime guard at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, 29-year-old Nancy Gonzalez, carried on a sexual relationship with Wilson and is reportedly eight months pregnant with his child.

“I took a chance because I was so vulnerable and wanted to be loved and now I am carrying his child,” Ms. Gonzalez said in one of the calls. She was speaking to another inmate she had met inside the jail, and with whom she had continued a romantic relationship after he was transferred to another prison.

The New York Times reports that Gonzalez dabbed tears from her face as she was arragined in federal court this week. She faces up to 15 years in prison. Oh, and "relationship" began after Wilson's death sentence was overturned and his competency was called into question.

He is awaiting a ruling from the judge overseeing the case to determine whether the government can continue to seek the death penalty, or whether he will face life in prison. Lawyers for Mr. Wilson contend that his I.Q. is so low that he is not subject to capital punishment.

Correspondence between Gonzalez and the second inmate indicate that—after realizing she was under investigation—she lamented about her relationship with Wilson.

“I know what is going to be said about me. I know that for me as a parent, how am I going to explain this to this little boy? ‘Mommy was in the military, Mommy was a C.O.,’ ” she said, “And then the opposite end is with a person who took lives.” [New York Times]
