      John Eldon Smith and his wife were charged in two counts with the murder of Joseph Ronald Akins and his wife Juanita Knight Akins.

      At separate trials both were convicted and sentenced to death on each count.

      Joseph Ronald Akins and his wife of twenty days, Juanita Knight Akins, were killed in a secluded area of a new housing development in Bibb County, Georgia, on August 31, 1974, by shotgun blasts fired at close range.

      According to the state's evidence, Joseph Akins' former wife, Rebecca Akins Smith Machetti, together with her husband, John Eldon Smith, (a/k/a Anthony Isalldo Machetti, a/k/a Tony Machetti), and John Maree plotted the death of Joseph Akins with the intent of redeeming the proceeds of Akins' insurance policies, and other benefits, the beneficiaries of which were Mrs. Machetti and her three daughters by her marriage to Akins. They were living in North Miami Beach, Florida at the time.

      According to the testimony of accomplice John Maree, he was to be paid $ 1,000 for his participation. He testified that he and Tony Machetti (Smith) drove to Macon, Georgia, where they contacted Ronald Akins and lured him into the area of the crime, ostensibly to install a television antenna, and that when he and his wife arrived at the appointed time Tony Machetti (Smith) killed both of them with a shotgun, after which he and Maree returned to North Miami Beach, Florida.

      After 35 years in prison, one time death row inmate Rebecca Machetti released

      Rebecca Machetti, 71, has been released after 36 years in prison. Machetti was once the only woman on Georgia's death row.

      Machetti was sentenced to death for the 1975 killings of her ex-husband and his new wife, Ronald and Juanita Akins. The Akinses were found shot to death in a secluded area of Bibb County.

      Machetti was convicted, along with her husband, John Eldon Smith, and John Maree of Florida, of murder in the deaths of newlyweds.

      John Smith, also known as Anthony Machetti, was sentenced to death and was the first person to be executed when Georgia resumed executions in 1983.

      Rebecca Machetti was granted a new trial in 1982. Machetti's sentenced was changed and she was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences.

      Machetti must report to a parole officer monthly, and will have electronic monitoring. Machetti is not allowed to have any contact with her victims' family members.
