During the sentencing hearing, Harris-Green, who divorced Green in December, said to her ex-husband, “You are a con artist. You are a monster. You are a devil in disguise. You are now forever exposed . . . Not even torture and death would be justice. Your justice will come when you burn in Hell for all eternity for murdering four innocent children, all because you’re insecure.”
In the great mystery writer Agatha Christie’s classic Death on the Nile, the person who winds up being unveiled as the killer admits, “I’m not a safe person any longer. I can feel that myself . . . It’s so dreadfully easy – killing people. And you begin to feel that it doesn’t matter . . . that it’s only you that matters.”
As The Washington Post reports, Michigan man Gregory Green stabbed his pregnant wife in 1991, slaughtering both her and their unborn child. He then called 911 and waited for the police.
Sixtteen years later, released from prison after his conviction, in part due to the efforts of Fred Harris, his pastor in Detroit who lobbied for him, Green married Harris’ daughter Faith, who already had two children. Green and Faith then had two daughters, Koi and Kaliegh.
On September 21, 2016, Green bound Faith Harris-Green with duct tape and zip ties in their basement; Green had shot her in the foot and slashed her face with a box cutter.
But it was far worse than that.
Green shot Harris-Green’s two teenage children to death in front of her. Their two daughters, Koi, now five, and Kaliegh, now four, were dead upstairs; they had been poisoned by carbon monoxide in the car as duct tape covered the muffler. Green moved their bodies upstairs later.
