Justice is never really done but at least we know that he can't harm anyone else now i have to pray how to forgive this evil man that's going to be hard i hate he did this cruel thing and put us and his family thru this evil deed. Dec 11th will sentence him on all 7 counts maybe he will get life without parole

Death is too easy now he will have a boyfreind he will have plenty of time to suffer my grandson you really never know how he walked him into the woods really hope and pray he didn't know what hit him that way he put him in the dirt killed me but now he will hurt the rest of his life. I feel for his kids they didn't deserve to lose their dad this way but he didn't think he could get caught but we showed him.

i don't know that anyone will ever know for sure except for sure except the man who did this.but the dep. d.a.(in her closing remarks to the jury)stated that she thought that the boy was simply "in the way"(of the mans relationship with the mother).

i might add that,having had the oppertunity to speak with ms. kennedy and others at the d.a. office before the trial,there were other 'schools of thought'or theories about this.one of the more intresting was that the man,having tragically lost a son some months earlier,may have have believed that if the mother suffered a similar loss(and assuming he been able to get away with it)-she may have tunrned to him for sympathy,empathy and consulation.remember,she had broken off their relationship only a week or so earlier.but again i must stress that this is all speculation and that the state is not required to provide a motive.

he claimed he startled him the gun went off but the man shot over 300 deer in his life time so he new how to handle a weapon and you can't shoot a gun without your finger on trigger and you can't shoot someone if it not pointed at him and he said a hawk landed on his son's lantern post and told him to shoot him so he does deserve death but it needs t be a slow painful one like on a fire ant bed but the time being locked will be painful he never went to see his own son in prison said he would see him when his son gets out now they are both in prison so this tells he taught his kids well and can only see's his kids behind bars forever

Seriously why drag his Kids into this, they are going through hell just as you are. Maybe in a different way but still they are suffering. You seem to have extreme hatred in your heart geared towards the wrong individuals. Honestly Mr. Ray with the way you speak on here, I am more afraid of you than I would be of Mr. Carter himself.
