That would end his misery, bigpapa. Life w/o parole brings an ever recurring satisfaction, especially from this loser who thought he was ever so much smarter than the people who put him where he is.

I'd be happy to see him burn in hell and the sooner we send him there the better. It's too bad another murder, Purcell, got his death sentence commuted...he should be invited to join Copenhefer.

I believe his attorney was court appointed...and he went through a couple of those. Someone had to represent him, like it or not. Without representation, he could not have been tried.

When David Copenhefer murdered Sally Weiner he thought that he committed the perfect crime, but he made several mistakes. The biggest mistake was leaving evidence on his computer. The police found most of the ransom note and a "to-do list" on the hard drive. Copenhefer deleted the files. He didn't know that the delete function doesn't really erase the file.

This crime was featured on Court TV's the "Forensic Files". The episode was named "The Stake-Out".
