Heather only got what she did cause of who the man was she shot and who his family is. Plain and simple in Morgan county its who you are and who you know!!!!! If it had been some Joe that no one knew or didn't have family in the right places, she wouldn't have got a life sentence if any. Sad place this county has become.

She had reason and he can't hurt any more women now.He should have went to prison for trying to kill his wife.This guy was a real piece of work.Somebody should have put him in the out building where he put his wife.He was more trouble than he was worth.People know the real truth so stop trying to put it all on the girl,it's a small town.
