Didn't take long for the animal to act like an animal. You are not human. You killed a 90 year old woman.

The first three letters of his surname suit him well.

Awful, I feel for the family of the woman. It'd be nice if we could figure out a way to find these animals before they strike.

Wow, I am becoming more and more in favor of the 3 strikes law. It seems every day there's another story of another horrible crime committed by someone with a rap sheet as long as a Hemmingway novel.

Well, here's an idea. Don't let them out from prison. Though, I'm sure they was potential for him to become a great citizen.

I am so for the capitol punishment because we keep getting these clowns with a rap sheet a mile long and we keep paying for them to sit in luxury. I am so sick and tired of paying for them to do nothing and then get out for good behavior and commit a crime again. I say our judicial system really sucks big time. I also say do the time for the crime. Murder equals death penalty, Rape goes with the big boys in prison that are serving time for robbery and stealing cars. My deepest condolances to the family of there mother, grandma, great grandma, aunt and other relatives.

Corey Omar Posley-Wells, DOB 12/4/80. Look him up on the BCA site. He's a pathetic piece of @%#*, who preyed upon an elderly, vulnerable woman in her own home. He allegedly was "visiting" a woman friend in the same building. When will people wake up & find out a thing or two about men they let into their homes/lives & spawn children with? I am so sick of this.$10 Mr. Posley-Wells was born at least 460 miles east of his current home in St. Paul. This is not racist. It's reality. Rest in peace, Irene!

Bring back chain-gangs. How nice would it be for the youth in his community to see this POS picking up trash in the ditch.

No bling, no sagging pants, no street-wise swagger. Just a bright orange jump suit (with a proper fit of course) and leg shackles.

It might make one or two wayward youth think about what the "gangster lifestyle" will get them.

I know the arguments against the death penalty: that it is not a deterant, and it is just as if not more expensive, but in cases like this it sure would make us feel better then spending $65,000 a year to house and feed this ape for the rest of his life, and he is only 27!

A bullet to the head has got to be cheaper than $65K a year for life.

I absolutely agree with you. And I see nothing to indicate cruel and unusual punishment with it either. If they just sit around in jail doing nothing they usually come out worse. Let them work for their 'room and board' let them go back to jail too tired to get into any more trouble.

Attacking and killing a 90 year old woman. If convicted that will get him lots of street crediblity in prison!! I was just reading about the segregation unit at Stillwater, with DNA evidence they might as well reserve one for him!

it's only more expensive due to the actions of people who oppose it(numerous appeals, 10-20 years spent on "death row",the needle being "too cruel",etc)

funny how DNA evidence can free someone wrongly accused in a matter of weeks, but we can't execute someone proven guilty by DNA in the same time frame, is it not?

Words can not express how I feel for the family. I will prey for your family tonite. I prey that Mn brings back the Chair for people like omar.
The only true Judge can be God. When omar stands before our Father in Heaven, he will answer for this.
