35 years..... Really? For cold blooded murder of a man in his own house for money? Ellington is a joke! Let's hope his public service career is over after he fails this election.

If he wouldn't have been so dumb to kill an innocent man in his own home, and snitched before He made an awful choice, this would have never happened. It makes me sick...you take someones life but you get to live your own, and my tax dollars go to feeding you. Just doesn't seem right.

Your absolutely RIGHT!! They should ALL get the death penalty! This is one of the most heartless and cold blooded murders I have ever heard of. She actually had lunch with him knowing he was going home to be murdered! She sat there and looked her husband and the father of her children in the eye and let him get up and walk away just to be gunned down in his own home. They should all have to suffer the same terror he went through. They are nothing but pieces of worthless CRAP!!
