Gotta love a stupid suspect that doesn't even take 5 minutes to come up w/a believable story to explain the possession and use of the victim's cell phone and CC. How could they think they wouldn't get caught, or at least questioned, once those facts were discovered? Where on this planet can you be in public, and NOT be caught on camera? ESPECIALLY at a fast food place? They got lucky that Mr Hero's had no security cameras.(so let's go to the MALL...probably the biggest grouping of security cameras w/in a 50 mile radius!) Boy are we lucky most criminals are dumbasses. Too bad these girls will have their meals and lodging paid for, basically for the rest of their lives. It won't be good tasting food, or comfortable "lodging", but they don't deserve better...what they're getting is more than there victim EVER will again. The defendant's parents can exchange letters with their children, talk to them on the phone, and likely visit them a few times a week. Sure, it's probably behind glass or a screen, but it sure beats talking to an urn full of ashes, or a headstone.

This story was covered on the show, The First 48. I hope these girls will get the maximum sentence. To do this at such young ages? Sociopaths. Lock them up and throw away the key. I would prefer the death penalty, but not being able to hurt anyone else anymore will do.

I believe they both deserve to pay for their actions. No one should ever commit such a heinous and senseless crime as these two did; however, what was a 52 year old father and grandfather doing picking up two teenage girls? He was a pedophile! Picking up young girls and taking them back to his house... Where was his girlfriend? There is a lot wrong with this story.. But AGAIN he did not deserve to die!!

I agree the victims action's were wrong however I feel these girl's should be charged to full extent of the law.

Good point about what he was doing with teenage girls. If he assaulted them, I'd have no sympathy for him. He could have avoided his demise if he didn't pick them up.

Horrendous childhoods may explain behavior, but it doesn't excuse it. Plenty of people have been through hell but don't end up stabbing someone. So ferrari said she is going to serve a 13 year sentence? Wow. Only 13 years for killing someone? I guess the best place to kill and get a light sentence is Cuyahoga County.

reply - Ummm Cheryl I'm not trying to make excuses for their actions but all I'm saying look at both sides...ya know he wasn't so innocent either...Why in the hell he was picking up my cousin and that other girl? Maybe if he was home with his wife and kids and doing the right thing maybe this wouldn't have happen......So as I say again before you'll speak know the whole damn story instead of talking so damn negative.....N yes she got 13 yrs which I feel like is fair enough so the hell wit that other bs.....I talk with her all the time and trust me she is regretting every bit of it but why keep holding so much hatred against her its over now and everybody needs to try and move on...I know its hard but with God all things are possible....My cousin Jasmyne was young and dumb and let the devil use her but I know in my heart this girl have great potential and this is just a Minor Setback for a Major Comeback.....

Be Bless!

So let me get this straight, the other young girl, who told her friend Jasmyne to stop stabbing this man, who assisted her friend in hiding what she'd done, deserves to die and is an animal? Let me guess, you're dark skinned right? Always jealous of us pretty red's! You probably gave her dirty looks the whole time and never too the time t try to get to know her, then have the nerve to wonder why she's looking at YOU crazy! Y'all will ALWAYS have a field slave mentality until you learn to love you and stop being jealous of other's beauty! Ya I know who you are!

Jazmine, you're an idiot! The more you speak, the more ignorant you sound. You and your cousin are definately of the same blood line. Please do society a favor by not procreating.

honestly i question his actions as well...no one deserves to die that way however. tese kids were young and dumb and prob have been thru alot. so have i but wrong is wrong. i dont believe they intended this. i do believe he tried something but i think they planned on robbing him. y else go steal all his stuff?? the older one doesnt seem as remoreseful though. they got off easy and should thank whoever they pray to. i have hope for Jasmyne to hopefully come out a changed person. she seemed broken. even on the video of them using the card. she was sitting with her head in her hands while the other girl had no problem ordering food. she really got off easy. it just seems that she just doesnt care that a man was killed. tragic story. 71 times to stab someone is alot. there was built up anger in that. no excuse but i really pray for them.
