What an unfortunate set of poor circumstances. I omly wish that others knew mr horrel as i and so many other knew him. when he was clean he was a kind and caring individual and hads not had a history of violence thus far, this is baffeling and the family and all of his friends send outr prayers to the ffamily that have suffered loos but we also send prayers to out loved one here and his family that remanis to pick up the opieces of this horrifying ordeal. our prayers go out to the victims family first and foremost and well as for the the man that we all love despite his many shortcommings. God bless to all that have been affected and mostly to the families dealing with the loss and even the accused because this is so not like his character to become suddenly violent and i can only hope that that he recieves the help he needs to make it through such an ordeal.....

This is why Illinois needs the death penalty.

Phillips Horrell should shot dead for what he did.

You only wish people knew him like you did. He's been nothing but a waste to society for the past 10 years in and out of jail 17 convictions please what's there to know.

I so wish Illinois had the death sentence still because Phillip Horrell should fry for what he did. And to think now he is pleaing not guilty. Go ahead and waste more tax dollars in this shit bag.

Sherman you wish people knew Phillip Horrell as you did when he was sober. Really he has not been sober in 15 years. The guy is a complete drain on the system. Phillip Horrell should be sentenced to death and not even put in jail. To bad Illinois suspended the death sentence.

Now us taxpayers are going to have to pay for Phillip Horrell for the rest of his life. Maybe in jail he will find the balls and away to take his own life and spare us all the expense of caring for him.

Wow!!! That is a terrible thing to say that u hope somebody takes their own life!!! Really?? Then I suppose u are just as bad as he is. He suffered from drug addiction and mental illness. No what he did wasnt right but to say he should take his own life is just pitiful!!!

Sherman, just like you I can say that I knew him personally as well, but not all that well. And yes, I can vouch for the fact that when he was sober and clean, he was a really nice guy, and usually a pleasant person to be around. And despite his lengthy criminal record over the last 15 years, none of those offenses had involved violence until the unfortunate events of October 12, 2012.

Do I believe he should spend the rest of his life in prison? Most definitely! Blame it all u want on his mental illness, but his actions have proven that he should never be trusted in society ever again. Do I believe he is a bad person? No -- at least not as bad as his actions might lead one to believe. I think the very fact that he called 911 afterwards to report the incident, together with the fact that he attempted to kill himself (the same way he killed the doctor, mind you) tells me that he indeed was genuinely remorseful for his actions. Personally, I was happy to read about him fully owning up for his actions during his last trial. As terrible as it was for him to do what he did, I believe he still has a heart -- which I realize runs completely contrary to what the majority of people believe.
