Excellent. Justice is served. It Can't get any better than this. This guy is evil and a murderer and he deserves death. The only problem is waiting for three years to sentence him and probably another ten years before its carried out.

Justice be done, and do it quickly. Now with todays DNA and trial procedures we are not in the same place as we were years ago. This that are convicted now of these types of crimes are intact guilty. All should be executed within the maximum perhaps 5 years so that all forensic re-testing and appeals can be completed. Once thats over, bye bye!

The fool might die of old age before his appeals run out. Now if he were in the great state of Texas . . . . .
