Annie had a hard life After her mother died, Annie worked part-ti
Annie had a hard life After her mother died, Annie worked part-time in a macaroni factory to help her family but she was eventually fired. When she returned home, her father beat her for losing her job, which caused Annie to run away and become a street hustler. Annie would end up changing her name to Toni Jo.⁣ ⁣ In 1939, Toni Jo was working in a brothel when Claude Henry walked in. After a whirlwind romance, the couple wed. When they returned from their honeymoon, Claude was arrested for murdering a former police officer and sentenced to 50 years.⁣ ⁣ Toni Jo began to set up a plan to break Claude out of jail. She recruited an ex-con, Arkie Burks, to help. While hitchhiking to the prison, unaware of their plan, Joseph Calloway picked the duo up. The plan was to just use the car as an escape car, but Toni Jo had her own plans. She ordered Joseph out of the car and shot him in the head. Arkie then took the car and left Toni Jo stranded. He was afraid of how far she would go to free Claude.⁣ ⁣ Toni Jo returned by bus after being stranded. She lived with her aunt Emma upon her return where she told her aunt that she had murdered a man. Emma then called the police, and Toni Jo was arrested. After being interviewed, Toni Jo confessed to everything.⁣ ⁣ After deliberating for six hours, the jury convicted Toni Jo and sentenced her to death. She went on to appeal and was granted a new trial twice, where she was again sentenced to death both times. Four days prior to her execution, Claude escaped from prison to see his wife one last time but was recaptured in Texas.⁣ ⁣ In 1942, Toni Jo Henry was executed via portable electric chair. Claude and Toni were never reunited.⁣ ⁣ Toni Jo was held in the Calcasieu Courthouse, awaiting execution. It has been said that she remains in the courthouse, even after death. Witnesses have heard whispering and screaming. Perfume has also been smelled, along with the sounds of footsteps. Jail officers think Toni Jo still hangs around locking doors, turning on electronic filing systems and talking for night guards to hear.⁣ ⁣ Toni Jo is still waiting to be reunited with Claude.
