  1. Second degree murder? I guess it was an accident when this vile lowlife murderer stabbed a sleeping three year old in the neck? Certainly, he must have entered the child’s room, tripped over a toy and fell with the knife? WTF?

    How can this not be 1st degree murder? He intentionally goes to the sleeping child and fatally stabs him in the neck. What do you think is going to happen as a result of the stabbing. The chances are very, very probably that the innocent kid will die.

    Wish we had the chair so that we could fry this b@stard!! Hopefully, the cons in the pen will give this creep a long and painful bon voyage to the spirit world where his soul will burn in hell for eternity.

  2. So very sad for the family of this little boy. Really tough guy who takes his anger out on an innocent small child. I also wish “old sparky” ( the chair) was resurrected for creeps like this.
