I have heard that the victim was an abusive jerk, and more than likely provoked the attack through relentless badgering and intimidation of the accused perpetrator. This does not excuse the crime by any means. However, one is left to question whether he had it coming. You know what they say about lawyers...

I am a family member of the two who were murdered, the victim was not an abusive jerk, neither of them had it coming. That's just wrong...

I met Mel Grimes during a conference with my brother, whom Mr. Grimes helped out in a situation, and my cousin used to work for Mel. My condolances to the family, needless to say, this is very shocking news, such a useless crime. One there is absolutely no excuse for. Sad, very very sad.

I don't know how, in Texas, anyone can say what Scooter has said. This is a shocking crime to anyone who knew Mr. Grimes, a shocking, useless crime, and no matter where you are, where you hear about this, some compassion is due the family, friends, and co-workers of this poor couple who died such a useless death. Mr. Grimes was not an abusive jerk, far from it, so people, bite your tongues. Shame on you.

Both the Grimes were abusive sociopaths who terrorized their direct neighbor Dr. Kenney and caused distress to other neighbors. The facts will emerge at the trial. This having been said, is not to be taken to mean that whatever happened was justified. But to paint the Grimes as anything other than what they actually did would be wide of the mark. Some of their attitudes to their neighbors can be seen painted on a fence on their land: they were a couple who behaved without any sense of neighborliness and were ruthless in attacking anyone who challenged their behavior.

KSBW TV Channel 8 in Salinas has done an excellent job of covering this tragedy. It can be seen on the internet video feed.

For anybody to say that the Grimes were abusive jerks is unforgivable and shows that they truly do not know them. I have taken care of their animals for years and know them well. They were compassionate and wonderful people and will be truly missed by all. I also knew Mr. Kenny on a casual basis, but feel if you can't say something positive don't say anything at all. Mel and Elizabeth I will be sure that your animals will find loving homes and will be cherished as much as you did. I will miss you, rest in peace.

Maybe you should wait to see who will be handling Mr. and Mrs. Grimes affairs.

I just want to express how terribly sorry I am to hear of Mel and Elizabeth's deaths. They were both very kind to me when I first came to Monterey. Mel hired me as a legal researcher. Over the years I would hear of Mel's growing reputation as a very good lawyer. He was hugely valuable to the community and it is a great loss of two wonderful people. That their lives should be cut short in this awful way is sickening.

My deepest condolences to the family.

Best, Pam O'Shaughnessy

You have GOT to be kidding. You don't even know the man. I can tell you right now that Mel Grimes was a VERY popular lawyer while the defendent is a flaming _______hole!

You have GOT to be kidding. You don't even know the man. While I'd be the first to admit that lawyers aren't my favorite professionals, I KNEW Mel Grimes and it was a wonderful, caring man. Did lots of pro bono work and was a truly caring individual. The idiot that shot him is a maniac of momumental proportions. The whole thing is disgusting and unnecessary.

If you check out the updated story on the Herald internet site, you might find the comments interesting to read also. I know I did. Bottom Line, this was a senseless murder that did not need to happen. A lot of people are putting the blame on the Sheriff's dept. and yes, they were at fault, but, Mr. Kenny is the murderer.
