I think that its wrong to charge the woman,Jessica Payne with the felony murder and the conspiracy charge also. I feel like if you werent there when someone gets killed, that you shouldnt be held responsible for it. I mean alot of people are/can be sittin in jail for a crime they didnt commit. Its an unfair law. Shes only 20 yrs old. Should we really persecute and take her life away all because of one boys dumb,stupid actions?! Lets think about what we would be doin to her and her family punishin them

yes i agree with one thing you said, it was stupid. but your wrong about the rest. the woman was not there to, she was at someone elses house. And there was another girl at the house with Jessica payne. Now how come she isnt sitting in jail?! i smell a rat... But the point is jessica Payne was NOT at Vineyards house when the murder happened. And if shes in jail the other girl should be to.

Heres an idea ..... Jessica Payne has been on drugs took stole and taunted her grandparents for their pills , been to pain clinics and used tenn care to obtain thoes drugs , then sold them ...... i smell fraud. That whole family is nothing but druggies . JAIL is the BEST thing for all of them. Jessica is trash and trash is what she chose. You make your bed to lay in and thats just wat she has done. EYE for an EYE ..... she was part of the murder because she DROVE them to the house KNOWING they were going to rob the man ,, he ended up dead so YES she is GUILTY she deserves what she gets. Pill heads SMH !:) Have a nice day !

let me comment on the things every one is saying yes agreeded she should not be in there if the other girl is not in there. i know ONE of the 3 boys are innocent. two of the boys were nothing but pill heads and dope heads. does any one care that they are going to take a innocent man from his family from his babies? no they don't. oh lets congratulate the d.a for finding the people who done it when they could not even investigate they had to hear it from someone else. and who ever put this mans name in their mouth appaerntly is covering for someone else. so please if any one knows who they are covering for. let someone know....please this man owned his own business took care of his own. done right by people would give his shirt of his back for someone. so please help free a innocent man please...

honest truth you obviously have a grudge against her. You act like u know her and her whole family. so who are yah? im her sister. so u should no me since yah no everythang! quit hiding behind a scrren name. get your facts straight she did not drive them to the house when they did that stuff. they drove themselves. She sat at the house with the other girl. funny thang the other girl aint in jail. hell for all i no you could be the rat. She should not go down. She was not a key player. it would have went on without her. She is a young kid that let herself get talked into sumthin very dumb. she should not spend the rest of her life in jail for a crime she did not commit. and i wont just stand by and watch her go down.

No grudge here. Just my opinon in witch Im intitled to just as you are yours. I agree its a sad sad situation , she is young and her life will never be the same now. However neither will the family and friends of this life taken by such ingorant acts. I honestly think Luke deserves justice. Regardless of my opinion and regardless of your opinnion its in the hands of the law now.

Well they went to court. the boys got 3 more charges added on. and Jessica Payne got the conspiracy to robbery bumped up to consp. to aggrivated robbery. and another charge to. but i cant remeber it. it was a really weird charge that ive never heard of before! They go back july 16th. I reckon they will sit in there for 3 0r 4 yrs before they actaually go to trial!! And I doubt any of them makes bond bc i found out that they set their bonds that high so they couldnt make bond! Thats pretty shitty I think! Honest Truth your right, that man does deserve justice. But how many lives do we take to vinicate 1 ? I mean honestly if Jessica payne wasnt in the house and didnt participate in the killing, and wasnt even on the property when it went down, but was at someones house sittin with another girl, i really dont think she should be charged with the murder. Should she do sum time for being stupid and goin along with the robbery plan?! yes she should . but i dont think she should be charged with murder and she sholdnt havet to do life or anythang like that in jail. I think by the time they go to trial in bout 3 or 4 yearss i think that is enough time for the role she played, which was barley anythang!

I'm kin to the man they beat to death and murdered.
People want to keep standing up for someone who was involved in the beating and murder of another? That's sad... had my family member done that to one of yours, I would be standing on your side. No one deserves to be tied up, beat, and murdered.

What is this world coming to? I hope they all get exactly what they deserve.

yes!this is a terrible crime that was commited to Luke,whom I knew for a very long time and who had became, since the death of his beautiful wife, a disgrace to her memory! what he did to degrade young women with the use of drugs would make you sick to your stomach!But the way such a torcheous death NOONE DESERVES NOR SHOULD BE UNJUSTIFIED TO THESE PEOPLE THAT PERFORMED SUCH A VICIOUS AND BRUTIAL MURDER!!As for the one boy that actually performed the final blow or finale death act to Luke I believe actually some kind of revenge or just plain hatred was his reasoning and intent when they all arrived NOT JUST A SIMPLE ROBBERY FOR DRUGS MURDER WAS ALREADY A THOUGHT TO THESE YOUNG AND VERY P---ED OFF INDIVIDUALS!And for that these young lives will have to be spent behind bars for their very viscious and brutial acts leading to this death!

Yes it is true about the whole family and the grandparents raised all the kids to be good but they were all from different branches and the grandfather is a very good man but the rest are just plain dope heads and theives.

Think what u want of my family. But I have never been a thief. I am on medication. But thats my business. And my parents are good people. Put all of your business in the street along with your family and let's see how clean you turn out.

Apparently "Backing you up there" dont know what there talking about. The parents and grandparents of thoses kids arent dopeheads and theives. Didnt know any of them was raised by there grandparents and that wouldnt have anything to do with your business. What choices they made. They Made. They are adults and the parents and grandparents arent to blame. Thats just plain stupid to even say that. If I do something I dont blame it on the way my mom raised me. They have to take responsiblitly for there on actions just like anyone else.

For some yes the Payne's are drugers they raised most of there kids, kids now raising 2 of the great grand kids. Mr. Payne has done for all and still trying to but the kids are stealing everything he has ever worked for. The grandmother is a dope head. Jessica stole from everyone for drugs as the rest did too. Luke was a good person not perfect but good did not deserve this. If Jessica was not there it will be proven in court.

good since u know who i am quit hiding behind ur fake name and use ur real one. u dont know me.. if u know me then u do drugs to! dont hide behind a screen nae talking shit.. say who u are and ill adress it from there! i could care less how u feel about jessica and im sure she could too! Luke Vineyard was nothing but a drug dealer anywayz, quit acting like he wuz sum pillar of the community! they would never had robbed him if they didnt know he had pills, and the only way for the to know he had sum was bc he SOLD his prescriptions to them. people dont just choose random people to rob and hope they have sumthing!! If he wouldnt have been sellin drugs they would have never been over there..
