There sure are a lot of strange occurrences around this case, aren’t there?
New reports allege that Antonia Ashford, the associate warden of the prison holding Maxwell, was recently arrested and charged in connection with her husband’s murder.
It remains to be seen what will happen with the separate Ashford case, but she claims that self defense was her primary motivator.
As for Ghislaine Maxwell, her case is also just at its inception, and I think the revelations from that are going to be seismic to say the least……

New York Daily News reports:
Police responded to the couple’s Jackson Township, N.J., home about 2:15 a.m. Monday after getting a 911 call that a man had been shot. They found the body of Roderick Ashford, 47, on the floor. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene.
Antonia Ashford was also charged with possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. She remains locked up at Ocean County Jail, awaiting a detention hearing.
Conditions at the MDC — where Maxwell is awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges related to her association with Epstein — are so bad a federal judge last week called them an “ongoing disgrace.”
