She was the last woman hanged in Great Britain after being convicted of shooting her lover to death. And a director/producer in Los Angeles, originally from Rome, and a cameraman/videographer from Barneveld, are teaming up to tell her story.

Peter-Henry Schroeder, owner and operator of PHS Productions, owes his acting roots to his mother Marie Angotti-Schroeder, who while living in Syracuse, enrolled her sons and daughter in the Syracuse Children’s Theatre, which continues today.

While his two brothers pursued other avenues, Peter-Henry and sister Maria Curley, continued with their passions for the performing arts.

Severn days from now the Inquest into Kingsley’s death will begin and I am appealing to the public the importance of next week’s Inquest set for Tuesday 7th April until 15th May.

I am listed first to give my account and evidence as litigate in person as I am not represented by a solicitor or barrister because of the legal aid system here in this country, especially when it comes to Death in Custody! However my position on the day will be to tell the coroner, jury and public at large what I know and provide the evidence which was kept in my possession for over four years to tell my deceased brothers account, in order to assist the jury in their decision making.
