Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer.

I'll be observing the 18th anniversary of the 1995 O.J. Simpson criminal trial verdicts tomorrow, Oct. 3, with Joy Cardin on her 6 a.m. Wisconsin Public Radio show.
