A few years ago a classic American drama unfolded in Channelview, Texas, where Wanda Holloway, 37, was charged with attempted murder. The charge was that Wanda tried to hire a hit man to kill Verna Heath whose daughter Amber was pushing Shanna Holloway, Wanda's little girl, to defeat in the school cheerleading competition. This was a story that touched the hearts of all Americans and is still available on video.
