Are you that unbelievably stupid as to think taking another persons life is justifiable? This comment at first pissed me off, but then it just made me sad to know that this is how some people think and act. Show some respect to the family and pray that time heals. Mike will never be forgotten.

I do agree that taking someones life is not something to just toss around. However, a man is only going to put up with S%!+ for so long untill he will handle it with whatever means are needed. And these days, a person has got to stand up for themselves and not let somebody push you over. Gotta have a backbone and not take crap off people. With that being said it was still a human life and my prayers go out to the family.

It sounds like these two men had problems they could not solve through talking and now one family with have to deal with a death while the other family is worring about their love one in jail. This is a very sad situation from either side and I wish people had more respect for their neighbors than to allow things like this to happen. The main concern I have is that there are too many bullies out here trying to push everyone around, when in fact this is usually the outcome. My prayers go out to both families and I hope this will open the eyes of the people who chose to live life arguing...it will get you no where...

I came up on this murder tonight on my way taking my kids to the fair. My son's seen a body covered with a sheet. It broke my heart seeing this and trying to explain to my kids why someone was covered laying in their yard was sad. I feel for both families and pray God be with them. I don't think talking a human life is right so I will not say I wish the death penalty on the guy who done wrong. I just pray no more people get hurt trying to get revenge....

Racist? Was the McGaha family of a different race? I don't know who Jeff is. Please explain.

He wasn't a racist, there are 2 sides to every story I guess. No telling what all kinds of excuses (lies) some people will come up with to justify a murderer. The truth: Jeff was doing something illegal and was called out on it and it escalated from there.

Did Mike deserve to die??? Hell NO! But your so right about him! That is on certain points. He Was a bully an may of been a rcist to. I do know that we had trouble with our land line a few yrs ago so I jusr had it surveyed. I also know that the guy is starting to give me grie.f Again! I know that a person can be pushed so far before they snap.I know it won't come to a killing like this. I know Jeff done wrong but I also know that he was pushed to his limit!

I did know Mike and his family. That family has had so much tragedy and I hate that they are suffering through this. I don't know the circumstances at all, but a life was lost over something that sounds senseless from what I have heard. This is no way to settle an argument. I am praying for the Cowan family and i hope the truth comes out and justice is served, even though it will not stop their pain or bring Mike back. So sad.

Mike was a bully, pushy and a loud mouth, I was at one of their family estate auctions a few years back, and I have never seen a family act so ignorant, loud and obnoxious in my life as his father, him and some of his siblings did toward some of his other family members, you cannot go through life, pushing and fussing with everyone you come in contact with, it's pretty bad when a crowd at a auction is ashamed of the family members involved because of their actions, no, I do not approve of killing someone, it is wrong and has ruined a lot of peoples lives,but when your looking for trouble, someone will accommodate you.
