Authorities said twenty-nine-year old Gonzalez is nine months pregnant with killer Ronell Wilson’s child.
Reports say Wilson, who is facing the death penalty for murdering undercover police officers Rodney Andrews and James Nemorin, concocted the scheme to woo Gonzalez and impregnate her in order to avoid the death chamber.
Gonzalez, who admitted to the affair, allegedly told agents that she got involved with the criminal she was being paid to guard because she wanted to be loved. Her own boyfriend, she told authorities, is also incarcerated in state prison.
Thirty-year-old Wilson, who had his original death sentence overturned due to procedural errors, had previously tried to avoid his death sentence. Last November he told officials he was mentally retarded. A decision about his mental stage was pending before Judge Nicholas Garaufis.
Authorities first became aware of the relationship after prisoners spotted Gonzalez next to Wilson’s cell with his pants down and his genitals exposed.
