I don't understand how this low life leech got life instead of death. I hope he prisoners remember him when he gets there.

I ageee with you Linda. I didn't like how the jury played out , with the dismissal of the alternates and the one juror who was in my opinion negligent. For that reason alone I wouldn't have felt ok with the death penalty

Given all the things that came out during this trial, I back the jury decision. I would prefer to simply reverse the actions and replace the lives taken, but that isn't possible as far as I know.

The jurors want to feel good about themselves. They want him punished, but if they gave him the death penalty, they would feel like they were bad. The jurors will not do their duty. May God help them.

Wish we could have sent him back to Texas they'll give him the justice he deserves. We can only hope he does what his coward of a father did

He should die for what he did to that elderly man and his wife....he gave them death... and now the taxpayers will have to house,clothe,feed and give him free medical and dental care for the rest of his life. Our system of so-called justice only has love for the criminal ... not the victims or their families. FACT.
