In a sworn affidavit, Angel stated they broke in the house then Wood killed the mom and two kids, two outside the residence. They then carried the bodies inside and set the house on fire to cover their crime. Now the two are pleading "Not Guilty". What!?!

This system is so screwed it's not even funny!!! Now we have to spend good money convicting this scum! Screwed!! Completely and totally screwed!!!!!!!!!!

Even if he didn't actually do the crime himself he was there and yes he is guilty. This was one of those crimes that we will never be able to understand.

If all they wanted was to rob them for a silly game or even money, then why not do that when they weren't home? By robbing them while they were home then killing them they should all get the death penelty

. No excusses for what they did. To kill them the way they did then set the home on fire makes them as bad and pure evil as they come.

There is no reason for what they did and yes I agree that the death penalty fits. My prayers are with all the families in the case. I feel bad for the boys parents and family. I can't imagine what they feel right now. I pray for the families that they killed. I am sure they are hurting. With the our system is doing, they are prolonging the suffering of both families. The ones that are moarning a loss are going to con't till the two boys have paid, and the boys families will con't to be on pins and needles till they know what is going on. Then we all suffer cause we have to pay for the two. Go ahead, put them to death and get it all over with!

I see no reason to feel bad for these boy's families. If they'd been taught better, maybe they'd be free and a mother and her two boys would still be alive.
These boys are scum, plain and simple. Most of that is from how they were raised.

That is not true.
I have seen bad Parents whose children have turned out good and good Parents whose Children have turned out bad. Those boys acted on their own desires and it is not fair to blame the parents. If anything, blame a society that wants to smack them on the hand just because they are minors. These kids are smart enough to realize that society will blame their actions on the parents. That's one of the main reasons, youth are increasingly committing crimes!

Eye for an eye... "Whatever he has done must be done to him" (Lev. 24:19, NIV) is used to indicate that the culprit should get what he deserves (cf. Judges 15:6-8, 11).

Make the death sentence shorter and not have to linger for years for tax payers to have to pay for murderers comfort.

I thought federal law prohibited teenagers
from being executed. I personally see nothing
wrong with it. Apparently I'm wrong, or the state would not be asking for the death penalty

I'll have to respectfully disagree. Three people are dead due to the maliciousness of these two and you don't get that mean if you have the proper guidance and discipline from good parents.

There had to be signs their parents had to have seen and did nothing to stop. At some point the old saying "boys will be boys" has to be squashed and stopped in its tracks. These two are anything but good and it should have been taken care of long before three people died.

Now three people have been put to rest and these two will be put on trial for a crime they've already admitted to, costing the taxpayers money we don't need to spend. Once they're convicted, lets not waste time with all the appeals for 25 years. Lets find a couple of rusty needles and don't bother tapping the bubbles out before injecting them. Or, better yet, lets fire up Ole Sparky and light their butts up. It's time to send a message.

I agree that our justice system is so lax. It should mean if they get the death penalty then put them to death like yesterday. Give them the same mercy they gave their victims.

I agree that some parents just sit back and let their kids get away with any and everything they do. They aren't taught or punished for the wrongs they did. Sad, but alot of parents don't give a rats butt as long as they stay out of their way.

But I have know kids that were taught manners and were brought up in church every week. They were good kids. But after getting older they got in with other kids that drank and did drugs. They went crazy and turned away from the raising they had. It wasn't the parents fault.

Parents can only do so much then as they get older the kids decide their own paths. Grant it these kids might have been brought up with fighting, drinking or other bad things, Who knows.

But regardless they KNEW what they were doing was wrong and the blame in entirely on them

How dare you! You know nothing about the families of these two boys. I have known one for over 15 years and I can tell you he came from a christian family and had a wonderful and supportive family. What happened that night is just as much a shock to those who know Matthew Wood as those who do not. We don't know what happened that night but I do know for sure that his upbringing had nothing to do with it. To judge someone who you do not know anything about in such a harsh way is despicable.

I'm an American and I have the right to voice my opinion freely. So, yes, I dare say that this scum Wood didn't get the way he is all by himself. Either it was a bad seed or there had to be signs that he was this damn mean and malicious. He cut the throats of three people. He had to chase down two of them outside to kill them. Then he and Angel took the bodies back inside and set the place on fire to cover their crime. That info came out from Angel's sworn affidavit. Either his parents didn't see or chose not to see that their son was a sick, deranged monster. Either way it's poor parenting on their part. Maybe if they'd paid more attention, three people wouldn't be dead now.

There is one good thing about our justice system though. This Wood scum will get his. Whether that's the death penalty or in general population, he'll get his. Both will be a living hell. One will end sooner than the other but both will be a living hell.

It's also my understanding Wood got burned in the process of burning down the house. I hope he got use to that feeling. He'll get experience it for an eternity and rightly so.

They will get what they deserve. If they go to jail and get relesed, someone will get them. If they get the death penalty, they will be killed. They sit in prison and rot, well, that is a lot of suffering, people on the inside will get them. They will gets what coming to them

What this says to me is that the prosecution is not willing to allow the offenders to plea their way out of a death sentence. Going to trial means a harsher sentence when all is said and done. People aren't just put to death...this is not the middle ages. A trial is necessary and I cannot wait to see these punks get what is coming to them!

I really wish they had pursued the death penalty for both of them. I cried when I heard how the 9-year-old boy had pleaded for his life and said to "please stop - it hurts - please don't kill me I am just a little boy." I have a 9-year-old myself and this crushed me to think of what this poor little boy went through. What kind of monsters are these boys? How could a person do something like that and have no empathy or sympathy. I am angry that these boys are only getting life without parole. I also believe the electric chair would have been a fitting punishment. The poor mother couldn't even protect her boys - she never would have even seen this coming. And this was all about a girl! Really!!! I have no feelings for those monsters or their families and if people focused on the victims and the horrific thing that happened to them they wouldn't either. What if this were to happen to you - I have a 17 year old too and that is unfathomable to even think of something like this happening. I just have so much sorrow for those victims and their families that there is nothing there for their killers. It is time to start using the death penalty for kids committing crimes like this because it is becoming far too common today.

Life is prison is to good for these little scum bags! Kill them the way they killed, cut them, then burn them, don't waist my tax dollars housing them for life (which averages $1.5 MILLION dollars per inmate over the sentence) they admitted to the crime, to hell with doing the time, rid the earth of these azzholes at once and make it a better place! I have 3 kids that know all parties involved and was/am sick to my stomach over this whole situation, to think my daughter rode the Bus with the victims, my sons played soccer with the victims AND the guilty scum bags.... These pieces of trash deserve to be killed and killed now!

I so wish I could run for public office on a "Kill them Quicker" campaign when it comes to murderers, rapist and child molesters, rid the earth of them and stop wasting my tax dollars keeping them alive when they place no value on life itself!!

I have been friends with the Father of the youngest child for years. I do not know the boys who committed this crime nor their families. But 2 months before the murders I did drop the youngest boy off with his mother as a favor for a friend of mine whose children he played with. He was one of the sweetest children I have ever known, and the ferocity and terror in which he died was so aweful I can hardly wish to phathom it.
But I'll tell you this, both of those boys deserve to die in as much terror as their victims. And it is a good thing the victims families are as good of people as they are, or those two low lifes would be waiting for the Gas Chamber!
Whoever you are, maybe you feel the need to defend those monsters and whom they were raised by, but I am disgusted by you!!!! My name is listed as above, and it is real. I would welcome you to defend any of em in front of me.
Giles County is my Homeplace. Me, my Father,my Mother,and my Grandparents are all born and raised there. My friend lost his entire Family. Those two and their families will have the oppurtunity to see one another. I hope they live long, very, painful lives I whatever Hell they arre sent too.
