while i agree with the punishment, i however dont understand how u can get less time than this if u actually kill someone and commit murder. it's mind boggling to me to see people who actually go all the way witht the murder and get 15 yrs! y is that?

Hooray-justice was served. I am glad Kathleen was not seriously injured and that they did not bother her husband. She went through a scary experience. I have a question though-why did they check her freezer for money. Someone knows something and is not telling.

fracesmary - My wife's family lives in Galion and knows this family. It was an "inside" job. The perps were former employees of the gentleman, the robbers went as far as to befriend the victims before they pulled the robbery.

Easy answer. The fine folks of Galion do not elect bleeding heart judges, they elect jusdges that attempt to deter crime.

Malcom Stall was my ex-boyfriend when he lived in my area last year, a move he said he did in an effort to clean up his life. Clearly, it didn't work. He wasn't a great boyfriend either but I agree with the poster that questioned the 39 years. People who kill get less. From what his aunt (who lives up the street from me and is a good friend of our family) said, the whole town of Galion knew of his past and prior convictions (drugs mostly), knew him as the bad seed, and wanted him put away. She said they basically rallied around the courthouse and made an effort to get him to pay for this and his other crimes and misdemeanors.
No, this wasn't right and yes he should pay. His anger is volatile. I felt it too. I certainly don't want him back and don't plan on visiting him but, really, what kind of life is he going to have when he's released? He has no skills, no college, no training in anything. A majority of his family - the ones that are within the Ohio area - are drinkers, smokers, addicts, and abusive in some ways. They gave up on him (and his brother who is also in jail right now) and this is the path he chose to combat that need for attention and affiliation. I truly believe that if he had been taken in by the aunt - who offered but was turned down - when he was a teenager, he would be a good citizen. He never really had a chance at a decent life and now he definitely won't. And neither will the other guys. Criminals or not, they are still human.

they have classes he can take in prison,or he can commit another crime in prison to add to his time he has a while to decide.

I lived many years in Galion too. Although Becki's post was dramatic, not altogether true. She is in Georgia, there was no rally round the courthouse. Just a town that elects judges who are tough on crime. Lots of people grow up with crappy lives and turn out to be good people. He ultimately chose violance to another and now he is reaping what he sowed. I am not buying the poor me excuse, if someone choses to hurt someone else they deserve to be punished harshly. What about the victim? Too bad the rest of the country wasnt tougher on crime too. I don't think murders should get 15 years either, I think we should follow the lead set by Texas on that one.

Oh goodness, I didn't mean a literal rally around the courthouse as in people standing outside and picketing and demanding Malcom (or the others) be given life sentences. I don't think that's what his aunt meant either. Just a figure of speech. I apologize if it came across that way.

I agree that he chose violence over anything else. There are lots of people who grow up even more abused and neglected than he did and turn out to be wonderful people. I was just giving a different perspective on the subject since it seemed a lot of people on here and on other article comment pages (which I can't comment on without being a member) weren't willing to see anything but the 'monster' he became during the crime.

I feel for the victim and understand her pain. I ws a victim of Malcom's anger as well. I sought therapy and went back to a faith I had walked away from years ago and no longer consider myself a victim. Hopefully, she will do whatever she needs to heal. It is a hard thing to get through.

Malcom is a waste of skin and air. Plenty of people have it hard growing up, there is no excuse. Him and his whole immediate family are all peices of sh*t. Malcoms sentenced was reduced to just 5 years, so he will be out very soon. I know there are some angry people out there and he is probably going to get the beating of a lifetime soon after getting out.

Also him and his brother are both pussys.... Thry couldn't even make that old woman talk. The lady kept telling them to fuck off after every beating and told them they were going to have to kill her. That old lady was a beast, them not so much....
