And some get rich quick low life lawyer will jump on this and make a mint. Bottom line is the criminal had to choice of not committing this crime. The victim HAD NO CHOICE. She was picked by his sick mind and was forced to be tortured and killed for no reason. Her family and loved ones were sentenced to a life without her or her baby. They were robbed.

He made the choice to kill and rape. Pay the price.

I do not actually support the death penalty, but for this family to say they want to sue the state because he suffered is intolerable to hear. Do they not think the victim suffered sheer terror, physical and emotional pain with rape, sodomy, and having her throat slashed? Were her last thoughts of her unborn baby? The entire episode is horrifying and they have the audacity to say he suffered for a few minutes. The victim's family should be suing them for damages.

Who cares how long he suffered. I sure don't. How longdid the young woman he bbrutally raped and murdered suffer. I'm sure it wasn't peace full. I bet she gasped for air too. He is a piece of garbage and shouldn't have lived this long. Now the family will win millions and boo hoo all over the news. No sympathy from me.

He got off easy in opinion. How much pain and suffering did he cause his victims and family? Twenty four hours wouldn't be too long for that scumbag. Now his family will sue.

25 minutes. That is about how long it took this scumbag to rape , sodomize, and slit the throat of a seven month pregnant woman.

Wonder how long it took for his victims to die? Good old firing squad would work just fine...
