High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Robert Charles Browne (born October 31, 1952) is an American murderer serving a double-life sentence at Colorado State Penitentiary in Colorado. Browne was born in Coushatta, Louisiana. According to a Red River Parrish Sheriff, Browne grew up as one of nine children in a hardscrabble family. He was a high school dropout who joined the Army and served from 1969 to 1976, when he was dishonorably discharged for drug abuse. Browne was arrested in March 28, 1995 on the charge of first-degree murder in the death of Heather Dawn Church, 13, on September 17, 1991. He initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, however, on May 25, 1995, in a plea agreement, changed his plea to guilty so that prosecutors would not seek the death penalty. On July 27, 2006, in a similar plea agreement, he confessed to the death of Rocio Delpilar Sperry, 15, who was killed on November 10, 1987, at a Colorado Springs apartment complex.
