Clearly this was murder #1. The man will no doubt argue for a lesser charge based on emotion and so forth. He might succeed in Wayne County too because there was little attempt to hide the crime. He walked up and shot her face to face. This deserves the max penalty.

The man is not expected to live more than a few months...The case will still be in the courts.He chose the way he wanted to be remembered..It's very sad that an 11 year old lost both her parents.Who will be taking care of her?What about the family of Courtney?Isn't that the questions people should be concerned about?
