I hope that fat pig gets the needle ASAP. A more sadistic way of execution would be more appropriate, but that would constitute "cruel and unusual punishment". I wonder if they thought the way he killed his victims was cruel and unusual. Let's hope Bevan Walsh doesn't screw up this time. The day that overweight hog meets Satan, I'll be having an ice cold beer to celebrate justice.

string the freek up in downtown Akron-hand out 10 darts to each person to throw at fat-boy then let him hang there and bake a few days without water or food-give him a slow miserable death and let us hear him cry and wimper and plead for his life like the pussy he is-then he can join Joel Yockey in hell and fry daily.Just shut up and die you crispy critter.

And cheaper for us taxpayers. Isn't there still a state that offers firing squad as an option? Nevada or something like that?

Lets hear about the victims. Lets think the horror they went through because of his intended actions to rape,rob & murder.

Now After realizing the fear,the torture, the rape. I think death is a very good sentgence.

Think again about the victim. Think of the victims family and the tremendous sorrow they endured. Again lets think about the victim.

I am sure his victims wanted to live also but due to Cooey's actions, he took their lives away. Now this man must pay for his actions with his life.
Perhaps he should have thought about this before killing this victims.

He didn't act like an abused child when I saw him in high school. He had friends and acted like a partying freak who was only out for a good time instead of an education. How did he stay fat after all these years in prison? It seems like they could limit the food intake better than that.

He is complaining he is too fat for lethal about just putting a bullet through him. He isn't too fat for that.

I wish we could send copies of these comments directly too his cell in the days following his just rewards, he deserves to know what society thinks of him and how easy he is getting off by just getting a needle in his arm. If given over to society I am afraid cruel and unusual would be an understatement.

My prayers go out to the family of the victims. I hope it finally happens this time so they can have some closure.

I agree with Jay. It's a shame what these people will try to do just to get out of the death chair! Pityful.
