In 1995, a judge reversed custody of a child from her mother to her father. Why? Mary Ward was a good mother, and John Ward had little to do with his daughter since they separated. Plus he was a convicted murderer who shot his first wife 12 times twenty years earlier. The reason: Mary Ward was a lesbian.
