i worked with this man, he was a very nice, kind, loving man. but he had a drinking problem so our company had laid him off about 3 months ago. they had told him if he sobered up that they'd promise him his job back full time.

it's funny because the news doesn't tell the full story. Darcy had called his brother and told him to call the police and to tell them he'd be waiting on doorstep. it's really too bad, i never met his wife. but i do know that she was leaving the next day. i do not know why she was leaving... but between driking,having his wife leave, and being layed off i think he must've cracked

I knew them both and Darcy was violent drunk and a creep who treated his wife like crap and was too immature to allow her to have a life without him. She was about to leave him and start over and he knew she would be happy and successful once she left him and, as she was paying all the bills, he couldn't take it the humiliation.

Blaming it on the fact that he did indeed spend everyday of his unemployed life drinking, and saying he "cracked" does NOT justify what he did to her as you seem to imply. He is cold-blooded killer plain and simple and he needs to be put away forever because he WILL hurt someone else.

I worked with Darcy too. He ran hot and cold. He put up a good front and appeared to be a nice guy. The reality was he was kind of a jerk much of the time. He had the mill fooled into thinking he was more talented than he really was. All the loser had to do was show up for work and he couldn't do that. He was a lazy, lying, whining drunken loser and was getting worse over the last few years. He never performed the job he was handed and the rest of the crew wiped his butt as he whined, lied and failed miserably at his job. He was given WAY more chances than he deserved. He needs to be locked up for life. It's too bad his wife had to tolerate his dysfunctional, screwed up ways unil the selfish punk snapped. Hope they hang the drunken idiot.

I grew up with Kira and Darcy. I loved them both very much, I still love Kira, but as you can imagine my love went out the door for Darcy the morning I got the news. She was one of my best friends and he was one my boys god father. She was an amazingly loving woman, who gave and gave to Darcy and he just didn't get it. He has been pretty messed up ever since his father died back when he was in college. Not a good situation for him, going to school to be a medical assistant, and he found his father laying in their front yard having a heart attack. He felt like if he couldn't save him then what was the use of him even continuing, so he quit. His life had been messed up wince then. But when Kira and him got together, it was great in the beginning. She was so in love with him. And they were very happy. But Darcy was so selfish, and insecure and VERY controlling. I was so happy to here she was finally going to leave him and be happy once again. The shock of the whole situation still give me chills every time I think about it. I am very close to Kira's family, even more so now that she is gone. I am debating with myself weather or not to go see Darcy, I want to look him in the eyes and him look into mine and ask why!! Many people love Kira and will always hold her dear to their hearts. When Darcy was in court he didn't even have the decentcy to reply to Judy(kira's mom) after she gave her statement to the court but mostly to Darcy. What a brave woman she is!! To Darcy- You are an unbelievably selfish man, My boys once looked up to you as their uncle big guy, now you are to them and everyone who knows you, nothing more than a MURDERER!!!! Rot in hell!!!!!
