    The results of all this are sickening. A young wife, mother, sister, & friend...taken, treated as if she meant nothing more than a bag of trash. Those beautiful girls have no mother, & everyone else from her life only have memories. The murderer gets a few years in jail. Wow. Real justice! I know the Currin family must be sick at this outcome. I have no faith in our justice system after this. A plea bargain that says that young woman's life was only worth 13 years - mind you 13 years where he gets 3 meals a day, a bed to sleep at night, and leisurely activities all day - then makes it out alive, and a free man. Maybe prison will change him. Hopefully he is haunted for the rest of his life, just like her family is. I don't even know that you could call this closure. It's just disgusting.

  • pebbles262004 Jun 14, 10:36 a.m.

    "oldwizr" Can you read?? This man said that he killed her. He admitted it..Duh

  • HEAFIE200 Jun 14, 9:42 a.m.

    PS - I am pretty sure that the SBI investigated this murder case along with granville county get your facts people

  • HEAFIE200 Jun 14, 9:34 a.m.

    The only thing that gives me some satisfaction is knowing when he gets out - he will be a completely BROKEN man - jail will break him (hopefully), and most likely he has lost all of his so called friends (or most of them), I still think he had help from a friend or someone.

    Everyone needs to remember - HE NEVER PARTICIPATED IN ANY OF THE SEARCHES FOR KELLY, NOT ONCE

    HE NEVER SHOWED UP AT THE VIGILS - NOT ONE

    HE IS A SICK, TWISTED DISGUSTING INDIVIDUAL - AND I HOPE THEY PUT HIM IN THE WORST PRISON THEY CAN FIND - maybe then some retribution will be found for the family.

  • HEAFIE200 Jun 14, 9:22 a.m.

    I'm sick - 13 to 16 years, he disgusting - why did they let him plea out - i understand protecting the kids, but he should have received ALOT more time and i being a mother don't think that i could live knowing that he will be out LONG before the 13-16 years is UP. HE MAKES ME SICK to my stomach.

  • numb25r Jun 14, 9:09 a.m.

    yes because looking out and seeing the sun up in the sky is the EXACT same thing. And it's such a PERFECT metaphor, because just like there is only one way for the sun to get up in to the sky, there can only be one possible way for a person die. Shortcake53, WHAT A SMART GUY. Totally debunked it all with a rising sun metaphor.

  • shortcake53 Jun 13, 7:26 p.m.

    numb25r, I KNOW I didnt do it, and I KNOW he confessed. I dont have to see him drag her away to be able to put things together. I didnt SEE the sun come up today, but I KNOW it did........

  • jody4663 Jun 13, 6:20 p.m.

    He will NEVER EVER be a free man! If any of you out there reading this are his friend, please let him no that he will NEVER EVER be a free man. "A man guilty of murder will be a fugitive for the rest of his life."

    eccgc

    eccgc, I think you're right on target. He will never be a free man. I just hope her family is able to move on and have some normalcy in their lives, if that's possible. Geez...

  • notbatman Jun 13, 6:10 p.m.

    I think it is good that he pled guilty, since he most likely IS. And let's not forget the entire YEAR that he let this family hang in limbo, not being able to have closure about Kelly. AND the countless hours and expense (paid and volunteer) he caused since he waited that year to give a clue about the location of her body. Wake up, people!

  • michellepaine Jun 13, 6:01 p.m.

    el conquistador....he told someone?? as I remember someone in the fox pen found her body...they searched for over a year for her!!!!!

  • Bluestone 33 Jun 13, 6:00 p.m.

    Just for information Scott did not tell anyone where Kelly's body was. It was luck that her boby was found.

  • ifcdirector Jun 13, 5:14 p.m.

    Thirteen to sixteen years? Are you kidding me? People go to jail longer for stealing TV sets in this state. I think the fact that most District Attorney's elected in NC, including the one in Wake County, are liberal democrats is coming home to roost in a big crime validating way. Apparently the safest person for a murderer to kill and have absolutely no fear whatsoever of the death penalty is: his wife. I think if I were a woman married to this DA I would be in court too filing for a divorce. Surreal.

  • el conquistador Jun 13, 5:04 p.m.

    A sad case of marital bliss gone bad. Mistrust,affairs, and eventually murder have kids wondering where their parents are and sadly they are not coming home. I think he got off lightly, but I , like most of the public, don't know all the facts.At least he told someone where to find her for the closure needed for both families.

  • flipper59 Jun 13, 5:01 p.m.

    Did he accept the 2nd degree murder plea with prejudice? Was it an Alford plea?

  • luvcuz66 Jun 13, 4:48 p.m.

    There are no guilty people in prison. Just ask them. They'll tell you.

  • numb25r Jun 13, 4:44 p.m.

    a minuscule amount of people would choose their stance of innocence over their life. And who knows, maybe he did it. But you people going around town acting like you know all the facts need to take a long look in the mirror and remind yourselves that you weren’t there so you DON’T know.

  • Timtooltime Jun 13, 4:39 p.m.

    Go to trafic court, the DA's are a JOKE ! Let alone on a murder case !

  • Timtooltime Jun 13, 4:38 p.m.

    You dirt bag ! I hope you rot in hell ! He is not a man, how can you kill a woman and live with it ? Animal ! Let me have him ! To the wood shed ye would go ! An eye for an eye !! So much for our LAWS and Lawyers !

  • numb25r Jun 13, 4:36 p.m.

    You guys are missing the point. The fact of the matter is, no one but Scott knows if he's guilty. A bunch of bored Granville folks get into a hizzy whenever anything bigger than a cow being born happens, and then go around proclaiming they KNOW him to be guilty. And they don’t. It’s a case where the autopsy only states that she was “more than likely murdered”. There’s your reasonable doubt right there. You can’t prove someone murdered someone based solely on the opinions of a bunch of old hens who finally got internet and need to blog their brains out. And taking a plea deal is not an admission of guilt. It’s being faced with an entire community that is against you, and knowing that they have the power to end your life. In the exact same situation many people would do the exact same. A lot of folks are saying, “I would never say I killed someone if I didn’t…EVER”. But I’d ask you, if someone had a gun to your head and would kill you unless you admitted to it, a

  • Bluestone 33 Jun 13, 4:21 p.m.

    13 years really. He will be out before he is 50. What chance did Kelly have.

  • IAMAmerican Jun 13, 4:19 p.m.

    The real question is this: IS HE REALLY GUILTY OF THE CRIME THAT HE IS PLEADING TO?

    dollibug

    You're kidding, right? If I were innocent, no way in the world would I accept a plea bargain, he's guilty as sin.

  • impatientgirl Jun 13, 4:15 p.m.

    13-16 even with a plea and saving us taxpayers some money, is NOT enough for the life he extinguished! and no I didn't know her.

  • diana123 Jun 13, 4:15 p.m.

    better a fox pen than a pig pen

  • diana123 Jun 13, 4:14 p.m.

    well finally we have the Ole Man confessing to killing his ole lady.

  • awomnsptofview Jun 13, 4:14 p.m.

    OMG....The D/A has some explaining to do here! This is not justice !!

  • kimcoltonterry Jun 13, 4:03 p.m.

    ARE YOU SERIOUS??!! He takes her LIFE, he takes the children's mother away FOREVER and all he gets is 13-16 years??? This is INSANE!!!

  • jamar32806 Jun 13, 4:02 p.m.

    13 - 16 years in prison?!?!?! What a joke! What is wrong with the system?

  • crustyhalo Jun 13, 4:01 p.m.

    dollibug !!! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING, RIGHT ?

  • Bartmeister Jun 13, 3:59 p.m.

    Well, if you didn't do it and you're facing the death penalty what would you do?????? Kelly's parents have a lot of money and can make a lot of things happen. I'd have taken a deal too.

    kellyslicklen

    ============================================================

    =

    Yep, prison is just full of innocent people like him. Ha, I guess he show her parents who was in charge, didn't he? You make it sound like you have an inside track on this, and maybe you do. Convincing me that a man takes a Murder 2 plea to avoid the death penalty and her parents is gonna be like putting the toothpaste back in the tube........... not much luck.

  • betty8i Jun 13, 3:58 p.m.

    I for one know the Currin's and who ever this lady is on here talking about them, must not know them well. My child goes to the same school and I have never seen a driver picking up the little girl. I know for a fact that I have seen Pat and Juanita taking her to and from school. Why trash talk someone in the first place??? If I was nto guilty I would not plead guilty....Shows you how much faith he had in his self. It does not matter it is all over and done with so no need to trash talk GOOD ppl who are the best thing that could have happened to that little girl. RIP Kelly

  • davidgnews Jun 13, 3:58 p.m.

    How did he manage to get a 2nd degree deal? More information is needed here WRAL.

    The real question is this: IS HE REALLY GUILTY OF THE CRIME THAT HE IS PLEADING TO?....dollibug

    ===========================================================

    Ahhh, Yeah he pleaded to it didn't he? Nobody pleads to a Murder 2 if they aren't guilty cause they are afraid of the death penalty on M1. It sounds like he got lucky being offered the Murder 2 rap. Is divorce that expense these days????? I mean, wouldn't it be cheaper in the long run to dump and run rather than spending 20 years in prison? Do people really think they can get away with something like this? They act like the police have never investigated a murder before.

  • djofraleigh Jun 13, 3:39 p.m.

    Doesn't seem like enough time...case must have been weak.

  • f6rider Jun 13, 3:31 p.m.

    Glad it wasn't my daughter, cause I would probably be waiting for him to get out.

    hunter 38......you get my vote!

  • orangemoonlite Jun 13, 3:28 p.m.

    It's been a while since all this went down...my Mom lives/works in Granville county. She told me then that everyone she knows truly felt that he had killed her, even before the body was found & before he was arrested.

  • jody4663 Jun 13, 3:23 p.m.

    dollibug, I doubt very seriously if you've followed this case and certainly aren't from the community where this happened. Nonetheless, we expected such a comment from you. You're beginning to sound like a broken record.

  • jody4663 Jun 13, 3:21 p.m.

    Did you know Kelly? You don't know that she wasn't such a great person like everything makes her out to be. Maybe he was trying to protect her from Kelly and/or her crazy family. Again, yes he admitted to second degree murder...if you were innocent and your choices were death penalty or that, what would you do???

    kellyslicklen

    kellyslicklen, You're trying to justify the murder. There is no defending him at this point. He lied for years and now he's confessed in order to save his a__. Get a life!

    Yep.....attorney and ADA are allowed to tell you most anything that they want to tell you....most times in the form of a threat....and when an innocent person is being threaten....anything is possible....this is AMERICA...and the legal system and how it works.....MAKE THEM ACCEPT A PLEA...REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PERSON IS INNOCENT OR GUILTY....just DO IT....so very sad that this is how it works....

    Really?? LOL!!

  • Paladin2 Jun 13, 3:09 p.m.

    To: Kellyslicklen. News Flash: He has confessed to murdering his wife and the mother of his child. It is interesting that you are making such irrational excuses for him.

  • speaksoftly Jun 13, 3:07 p.m.

    I hate it for these children, because of his senseless act, there are two sweet, innocent children out there that will grow up without their mother – they will always live with the idea that their daddy killed their mommy … just sad. Everyone says how much he loved his daughter – where was the thought of his daughter when he murdered her mother?! Where was that love when he decided that it was a good idea to toss his child’s mother into a fox pen?! Where was all this caring emotion when he returned home to scorch the joint?! It’s all just so sad!

  • speaksoftly Jun 13, 3:03 p.m.

    This case, in its entirety, is such a sad sad reality.

    A man, a husband, a father admitted today that he murdered his wife, the mother of his child, and at no point has he ever shown the slightest sign of remorse. Though he’ll only serve 13 – 16 years in prison here on Earth, his eternity is far worse than what he’ll have to deal with behind the cell doors of some cold, emotionless prison block. I hope those 13 – 16 years will be the longest years of his life & I hope that he is ravished & treated as cruelly as he did to her. Karma is a B & may she b'slap him all the way to wherever it is people like him surface. Though 13 – 16 years seems like a short amount of time to most of you, it’s the max he could receive – so good for you Judge. With that sentence, it’s enough time for his daughter to get to the age where she can decide whether or not she wants anything to do with her father. I hate it for these children, because of his senseless act, there are two sweet,

  • smack Jun 13, 2:59 p.m.

    kellyslicklen- Wow. Give me a break. It made me laugh reading all of your comments.

  • mjlt3 Jun 13, 2:57 p.m.

    wow - what a slap in the family face! 13 ti 16 years in prison, that is NOTHING!! How about life without parole atleast, this murder will be out in less that 5 yrs prison time (what a joke). My prayer goes out to the Currins - may he get his in prison!

  • orangemoonlite Jun 13, 2:55 p.m.

    warrenhicks1967, did you ever think they gave him a deal because they knew they couldn't prove anything??

    So, if that's the case, his lawyers would have known this as well & advised him better, rather than telling him to plead guilty to something he didn't even do??? Come on people, think about it. If you're lawyer believed you didn't do it becz you didn't & they knew the DA didn't have evidence to convict you, do you really think they would tell you to plead guilty?

  • parichar77 Jun 13, 2:51 p.m.

    "Under his plea, he was sentenced to 13 to 16 years in prison."

    FOR A CONFESSED MURDERER!?!

    Our judicial system in this country is a JOKE!!!

    Yep. if they had found some drugs on him he would have gotten 20+ years even if his wife were not killed and the house not burned.

  • orangemoonlite Jun 13, 2:48 p.m.

    Well, if the DA didn't have enough evidence to convict him, then why would he be sitting in jail all this time? The DA's all around NC just want to close cases & make their numbers look good - not worried necessarily about the actual outcome & how all parties are affected. I've seen this too many times - & yes, personal experience, not just reading headlines.
