This was obviously murder!!! I am so sorry for your loss. Thae Kanawha County prosecutors need to be kicked out of office. They just are plain stupid...they don't know how to do their jobs.

As long as Mark Plants is over the Kanawha County Prosecutors' office, these criminals will walk or get a plea deal that is a joke. Criminals have never had as good of a friend as Mark Plants.

Spread your innuendo''s and rumors, that's called fiction in the real world. The prosecutor has facts in front of him, facts, and the testimony of those that was impartial. K.R. is a free man and deserves to be, period. Its over. The truth is always stronger than a lie. If you wasn't there keep your mouth shut.

Yes, the prosecutor just stated on TV that everybody should go buy a gun or baseball bat. Looks like justice is in the hands of the people.

Well Ronnie, you are all over the place tonight huh? So how, tell me do how know what the prosecutor has? Are you so closely connected to the case that you know more than anyone? I'll be scanning and uploading all the witness reports and guess what- i DO have them all so the fun has just begun :-)

Ronnie: unless you are actually KR Slater, you don't need to speak for him. Let him grow a set and speak for himself. My contact info is all over the Internet and unlike him, I'm NOT hiding. I'd be delighted to sit face to face, in a civil manner to hear what he has to say.

He needs to man up and quit having his concubines like you defend him. My 14 year old son, who's Daddy HE murdered is more man than he is.

Dear Sir, in your own words I "implore" you to stay the fuck out of it all

Have a nice day.

Ronnie. this is Matthew. Roberts son. My Mom is letting respond 2 u myself. She does not hide any of this frm me. There's no reason for her 2. I'm old enough 2 understand what is going on.

Nothing is a rumor. KR Slater killed my Dad. He punched him n he killed him that is a fact n not a rumor. on ur other post u say that I may not be as strong as her. I am, I am stronger than any of u. I am a kid and I have lived thru more this year than most of u in your life. I can stay strong as long as it takes to hear him say that he is sorry. Why he really did it and why his story isn't the same story of the lady there with Daddy. Nothing can bring back my Daddy n I miss him so much. But what has happened is wrong. If you think it's ok then let it happen to ur Dad!

Matthew my love, you are also old enough to use correct English. You are not texting.:o) Love you! Mommy

Ronnie, no response needed from you or your peanut gallery. The child has spoken and gone back to his video game. G'nite.

Slaters family is trying to mouth off on here about you Aimee. I think you should sue their assess off in civil court. Bad thing is, they probably don't have anything.

Hey Aimee. I havenít seen u since I gave up drinking. Sorry to hear about the old man. I remember u said your ex had a roaming eye back then. It looks like he paid the ultimate price for it. Too bad, but maybe your worries r over now. I know it has to be hard on the kid. I hope he left you well-endowed. (Not that ;you arenít well endowed already. Ha ha.) Thatís our little joke. Boy, Iíd like to see you again and catch up. Let me know the hours you work and Iíll try to stop by.

Robert, I'm very sorry for your loss. I preached a funeral about two weeks ago of a man that was 40 years old and had 5 kids, ranging from 5--18, I seen the agony in them and I know you are feeling the same thing. I was raised without a dad and its tough. God bless you and keep your mind active. Right now, you feel as though life is over for you, but as hard as it is one day you will laugh again, love again. And every time you look in the mirror your father will be looking back at you. He made you, he created you, he's in you and part of you. He will always be with you. Hang in there young man, I'm very sorry for your loss.

Robert was not one to start a fight. I knew him for 25+ years. I absolutely do not believe that he started the fight. The only thing Robert was guilty of was stealing Kenneth Slater's girlfriend. How in the world can the authorities let this scum get away with killing him?
He gropped a woman, he got beat up and sadly he died. Did he deserve to get his butt kicked.. yes. He did not deserve to die. If I was at a bar and a man was touching all on me and was told to leave me alone, the same thing would have happened. RIP Robert but Kenneth is not a murderer.

- he groped a woman ? The news says he "made advances" ... Slater -- or should I say "Slayer" was just jealous because Robert was talking to his girlfriend - if she had a problem with Robert "making advances" then she should have left. Robert was not a fighter - he was a ladies man - but not a fighter - he didn't deserve to be beat up- let alone killed by Kenneth Slayer
- His intent may not have been to kill Robert - but - he did in fact kill him-
He should have stepped forward immediately - admitted what he did & apologized - he killed him - plain & simple

Amy I haven't seen you in years and Your son was very young back then. You and Robert did work for the office all those years ago and if there's one thing I know you will see that justice is served. Mark my word all of you, Amy will not rest until the truth is out and i would be more affraid of her research and devotion than I would be of the police and prosecutors. Robert was a great man and I adore the both of you. He will be missed.

I can't believe you had your son post on this site it is not for children you should know that. What parent would encourage a child to post on the death of thier father on a trashy site like this you should be ashamed of yourself. I am so sorry for your loss but please think of your baby boy. I don't even want my daughter to know about this site I would never encourage her to post on here. God bless you. Just think about your child it is not doing any good at all introducing him to this site poor parental judgement I have to say.

My son grew up real fast on March 28th 2012. He is no longer a child. He lost his innocence that day. Unless you know me and unless you know my child - stay out of it.
Now, if this forum is so terrible. Why are YOU on it???

Hello Dear,(Trash?? where'd ya get that?) lol! Anyway, thanks! You are right, he did grow up too fast that day. Also - why ARE you on this forum if it's so horrible. Maybe you could find a parenting site to be on since you have all the advice. Good Day :o)
