Tuesday, July 17, 2018(News 12 This Morning) AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- When you look at the way Charles and Margaret Moye interact with one another, you'd believe they were still on their honeymoon.

I just hit the jackpot!'" When the world was at war, these two found love. Charles recalls having to stop in the middle of the night on their way to Norfolk to begin their lives together, "They had a wartime black out.

Steven Avery Guilters Send Sheboygan Judge Flowers In Murder Case - Patch.comTuesday, December 19, 2017
Avery and his family call home. This week, Patch reported that Zellner celebrated another momentous legal victory as murder charges against another client, James A. Bates, were dropped. The Arkansas case drew national attention after prosecutors demanded access to audio from Bates' Amazon Echo smart home device, claiming it may contain evidence of a crime.RELATED: Zellner Successful In Amazon Echo Hot Tub Murder CaseBack to the Avery case.Several weeks ago, Judge Sutkiewicz, in a brief written ruling, rejected Avery's request for a new murder trial. The judge made her decision without even conducting an evidentiary hearing on Zellner's post-conviction motion that was more than 1,200 pages in length. This week, Judge Sutkiewicz issued a follow-up ruling that informed Zellner that she will not change her mind and rule otherwise. Zellner will now take up Avery's crusade before one of Wisconsin's appeals courts. Judge Angela Sutkiewicz of SheboyganBut what happened next stunned everyone, most notably the judge.On Thursday, Judge Sutkiewicz issued a letter to Zellner as well as Assistant Wisconsin Attorney General Tom Fallon and Manitowoc County District Attorney Jacalyn C. LaBre. She informed the lawyers for both sides about the gift she received as a result of her judicial rulings in the Steven Avery post-conviction process. The person who sent the judge flowers used Hoffman's Flowerland in Sheboygan.The company's website states that "Harry and Sarah Hoffman opened Hoffman's on October 30, 1929 at the start of the Great Depression ... Today, the third generation is in charge, and ensuring that the Hoffman name is synonymous with quality and service. That is why our slogan remains 'Pleasing you is our pleasure.'"Obviously, the Sheboygan judge wasn't so pleased about getting the flowers."Greetings: I wanted to notify the parties that an individual sent a floral arrangement to the courthouse on November 29, 2017, addressed to me and it was forwarded to my office," Angela Sutkiewicz wrote in the letter. "It contained a piece of paper which stated, 'Best wishes from your admirers at SAIG (Steven Avery Is Guilty).' A copy is enclosed."The Sheriff's Department was contacted in an abundance of caution. They determined that the sender is neither a party to the case nor representing a party in this case."Since the floral arrangement is a gift, I rejected it by returning it to the flower shop today (Thursday)," ...
