I am deeply moved, to tears, at my desk by this story. I hope that Jon and his family can somehow find peace in this world and someday go on to see happiness again. We are all thinking of you, and your love will definitely live on...peace and love.

what is the difference between Scott Deojay and Scott Peterson? Oh Deojay plead guilty to raping another victim along with taking an innocent woman's life. Scott Peterson sits in prison awaiting his death sentence and we tax payers must pay for Deojay's life. A classic example of a failure of our Judicial System once again. Wake up people!

Jon Baker has it right. Judy Nilan wasn't the only class act in that household. Wishing him and family the best, longest, and healthiest life he can have from this point forward.

Let's hope that Scott goes to Somers State Prison and becomes the girlfriend of a 350 pound man named Louise!!!!

I am glad to hear that this monster is no longer going to be on the streets to hurt others. I only wish our criminal justice system was like those in countries where the punishment fits the crime. The only fair punishment for this man was to be have been stoned to death by her family or better yet, killed in the manner that he murdered Ms. Nilan. I can only hope that my tax dollars do not fund his stay in prison long and that "prison justice" is served on this beast.

God Bless her family and those who knew her.

Judy Nilan should be a reminder to all on how to live your life. You'll be in our hearts forever Judy and we miss you every moment.

We're luckly this wasn't in Vermont, where some rabid left-wing judge would opt for parole (as part of their "Restorative Justice" movement).

just for the record,
since we are all so concerned about how our tax dollars are being used, it actually costs more to execute a person than to keep him in prison for life:

take a look at this study (and there are plenty more where that came from).
i have much deeper-rooted feelings as to why i am against the death penalty, but one can't argue with logistics.

Yes you are correct, I am against it. when did i suggest otherwise? hmm, you may have misinterpreted something i said.
let me try again: since so many people shared concerns that we are "wasting our tax dollars" on keeping these creeps alive, i merely stated the contrary, which is that executions are actually MORE costly than life in prison. and there's tons of research to support this.

Your comment is pure arrogance. sometimes it isn't about the money. why should the person that gives death be offered life. Opinions like yours is why CT has 15 people on death row who will never be executed.

I ask you this question...If a member of your family; your wife, sister, mother who was brutally beaten, and murdered, would you want to see their murderer live and take breaths everyday, while your loved one was given an unfair death sentence for simply doing something they loved?? Look inside yourself for your answer. Until your are in this position you cannot give a fair opinion, because you do not understand the grief.

I am now a proponent for the death penalty in all states, I know the grief. I hope that prison justice will prevail and someone will brutually murder 171508. This will give us more satisfaction than any humane execution that the state of CT would offer.

I will pray every Sunday in church and forego my Christian beliefs in this matter.

I'm assuming that the number you mentioned is someones inmate number. Most people probably didn't catch that on the first read.

My deepest condolences for you and your loss.

Marie,
I did not mean to come off as arrogant. I do NOT think money is an important factor in this at all. I was just responding to people who were complaining about a "waste of tax dollars". It was just an objective opinion.
But on another note, I am very sorry if you've lost someone. But you yourself describe execution as "humane". So then why are you pro-death penalty? Doesn't execution seem like an easy way out?

I use to think as you did that the death penalty was the easy way out but then 171508 took that someone I love. Execution by the criminal justice system IS humane compared to the acts that put the murderer into prison. Judy Nilan did not deserve the death sentence imposed upon her on that night and neither did we who mourn her loss with each waking moment. 171508 not only sentenced Judy to death by his own hands but the countless others who she touched with her kindness and love for her family and friends.

Death is final. Prison is not. Each morning 171508 will wake, eat, laugh, talk, paint, be able to speak with family. This morning and all the mornings since December 12, 2005 Judy has not done any of those things. Such small items we all take for granted each day. Each day, those who knew Judy wake up with a sense of loss, the scars left will never heal for anyone who knew her. I am pro death penalty because I now know both sides of the argument, the wuestion to those who oppose it is do you??
