I'm laying here watching the First 48...I cried at the end. In my opinion, the 17 year old is manipulative. The way she threw the 15 year old girl under the bus, like she orchestrated this entire situation is unjustifiable. The 15 got 13 years and the 17 year old received 7 years. On the videos, the 17 year old was the one attempting to use the stolen credit cards while the 15 set down in distress. Either way it goes....they are all victims in a way. Even though one of them lost their lives. But he's more responsible for this event than those young ladies. Its no way on earth a man of his age should have been in the presence alone with someone under age daughters. I can't help but to wonder was the 17 year old jealous of the attention he was giving to the 15 year old. Is that what caused her to become so angry. He should of beat their ass like grown men. Then he would of went to jail for prostituting a minor and assault on a minor....and they would have went to jail for attempted murder. Long story short...none of this is fair...none of them played innocent roles. Only God judgement counts!

@Jazmine; I applaud you for defending your cousin however lesbian or not you know the business on trying to "HIT A LICK" so both these GIRLS not women are responsible for the death of Michael Williford. However the GROWN ASS MAN had no business trying to have sex(because that was his intention) with these LITTLE GIRLS. They ALL made BAD CHOICES.@THE REST of the people badmouthing these two LITTLE GIRLS, you must be younger than 17 or 15 because you have forgotten the MINDSET OF A TEEN. The individuals who have not had the experience of an urban or impoverished environment as a child, you CAN NOT speak from an educated standpoint on this issue. If you attempt to you speak from IGNORANCE. In addition the mindset is so different in this generation versus in the past. These kids are bombarded with images from social media, peer pressure etc. to live "THE LIFE". They strive to obtain material goods so that if I look good on the outside I AM SOMEBODY, regardless of the person on the inside or in the mirror. These kids live in a FANTASY WORLD and NOT REALITY. I am 40, have been playing video games online (NBA2K14-Basketball), you can play with other people live online, their is also a feature "THE PARK" it simulates competitive basketball in an urban environment. I have the REAL EXPERIENCE of dunking on someone, shooting long jumpshots in their face etc. I listen to these young men online talk about this simulated environment as though it is reality SCARES ME!! I parallel this with the world of most kids today, they think the violence, the theft, the drinking is REAL but has NO CONSEQUENCES. Whether a inner city kid stealing, robbing to get some Jordan's or a rural kid killing people at school or their parents because they are being teased or not getting their way. These kids are detached from reality. I believe this spills over to their lives and situations like this occur. God Bless US ALL

I also intended to say, these girls were unloved, unsupervised and uncared for therefore hurting on the inside. For those of us who grew up in a reasonably loving, caring environment we CAN NOT IMAGINE the hurt and pain they were/are going through. again God Bless US ALL

PS don't judge me on being 40 and playing video games LOL

I've just seen this story on 48 hrs a year later and it caught my interest . Reading some of these comments are sad and idiotic. Jasmine, people are people - I lived long enough not to be too suprised they they can always take their actions a step further. I felt your anger, compassion, and pain, in wanting to have people see your side regarding all three involved. Jasmine, it's just their opinion, they are not experts, politicians, God, or whatever - they are entitled to it.. You just don't have to agree with them, better yet, best thing to do- don't read it. My take on it happened in these young girls lifes, who knows, molestaion, psychial, emotional abuse to maniputale and hate men to death. I don't know their whole story - I know they were troubled in order to lead to murder. I first blame the adults in their lives - if this is the case for not being their to nuture them, and help them become better human beings. I just have to go back and comment on Chynna Redd comment - about dark skinned and light-skinned jealously mentality. Who says that dumb shit anymore... It does not matter if they where Snow White, Blue Black Purple, or Butter Teeth Yellow - ..Lorain, OH

I saw this story on first 48, however i to feel there is alot more that was never brought out to the public. these two children belong to a family, they needed help, children don't just up and do this kind of thing unless somethings in their life made them like this.We don't no what this guy was thinking and we where not there to see , but something made them do what they did..Lets not forget the prosecutor has to sell a story, makes things sound traumatic..Only God knows what really happened, i feel for all three of them, sad sad...jus sayin

Rainy"]People say all the time child molesters should be punished with full extent of the law that's just what this man was and even tho he did die a horrific death these girls prob saved some other young girl from being victimized.... Point is his ass wouldn't be dead if he wasn't picking up kids to touch on and do drugs with...

Amen you're so right.....I don't agree with what they did to him but the bottom line he asked for it......Should have never put his hands on my cousin jazz bottom line....

who="Shocked"]Honest ly I think it's pretty fucked up that they only got 7 & 13 years. Okay yea they were minors and the man should not have picked them up, smoked with them & brought them to his house but they were old ENOUGH to know better than to accept a ride from a stranger it's not like the man kidnapped them and forced them to his home. They were being fast ass girls who were acting like hoes. I mean did you see how she was dressed? Murder is murder. Other people get 25-Life. But because they are "minors" they got a slap on the wrist. Where is the fucking justice.

Bitch never have i received any type of assistance from the government...Hoe i work real hard for mines so u got the wrong one...U on the other hand probably get them bitches but i work for mines....#DoYourResearchBoo#Bi iiiitttcchhh#IWork4Allstate#Do n'tNeedThat#ButUMightDo

I just wanted to add that this was an overkill- If somebody stabbs someone over 50 times, they have alot o rage and hate in them against somthing or somebody. I believe Jasmyne hated men- I truly beleve molestation was part of her life at an early age..something happened to her horrific!!! I also have heard about young girls being molested turning their sexul attention to females, who do you blame for that - the child or the adult who should know better, Also some of you sound real young and dumb with the offensive and insensative comments. Grow up, even if you disagree with someone - just pray this does not hit close to home one day for you or- someone you know or your family....

Not about to put my cousin jazz business out here like this but just know yes she has been through alot and to several foster homes... She received much love from her family members but definitely needed much attention from both parents esepcially her father....Not saying what she did was right but just saying that my cousin had alot of problems seriously...As for being molested I'm not sure about that because she was back and forth betwee my people and her momma ppl and the foster home ppl so really don't know on that behlaf but yes my cousin looking for alot of love from both parents and truly honestly has alot of hurt inside and when the man put his hands on her she immediately took all the builded up anger out on him....I honeslty know what happen this is my blood cousin and trust me we got lawyers to vouch for her as well.......#FreeJazz#MyBabycou sin#Y'allOpinionDon'tCount
