I do not believe he deserved this punishment, he is a man who was fighting addiction and possibly mental disorders. No one should judge him, nor act as if they knew what happened that night period.

I think he got what he deserved. He could have made efforts to seek mental health years ago. Bottom line he took a life.

I do feel for the family. Because they are the innocent ones who have to deal with the loss of the defendant. I also feel for the ones who were close to Morgan.

The only mental issues here belong to the jury for not imposing the death penalty.

ALOT more jail time than mental hospitals. The jury got it right for a change. May this poor girl after all the physical abuse and her tragic death, rest in peace.

well,IF that's true, sounds like they were two peas in a pod. AGAIN, doesn't give him the right to beat her up numerous times and then eventually kill her. So typical, attack the victim that is not alive to defend herself. And if someone is trying to straigten their life out,you stay away from situations and other people that would stop that from happening. Blame everything & averyone else, that's great.blah, blah, blah

easier said than done. no one is attacking the victim. just letting you know that you don't know everything like you think you do.

I have known scott all my life, he has had his problems but i know he would never intetionally kill anyone! Addiction is horrible and very diffilcult to overcome.
As far as the trial, isn't there reasonable doubt here? How come the bullet was never recovered? Where did that dissappear to? How come the experts couldn't tell the caliber sixe? Just b/c he did have domestic violence in his past does not make him a murderer!!! He just needed a great, expensive lawyer to prove the facts!

on the morning of the shooting he called his mother snd told her that the cops had shot and killed his girlfriend and that he did not want to live anymore and he hoped they would kill him too. this message was given to the police and oops they lost it just like they lost the fatal bullet.

i was on the jury/ the defense never gave thier side. they rested their case and never gave it a chance. i was going to say not guilty as i really had doubt about the cop's bullet that was mysteriously untraceable. But. they gave up, never presented thier case, and we went with the state
