Dr. Noffsinger is on to this criminal's game and lies---he is just making up the CIA story to save his miserable life. Anyone can act crazy and say irrational things to save their life. He is truly a monster, let's get the show on the road already! Just do it! He sentenced his victims to the penalty of death and they received no hearings or reprieves---give him the same sentence.

I read his wife's letter to the judge that she wrote before she was murdered. It is really an eye-opening letter---this man is truly a monster. She states that he was very verbally and physically abusive to her and to his infant daughter. He would hit and bite his infant daughter who was not even 4 months old---child services was called by neighbors. He threatened his wife and told her not to say anything or he would beat her.
He even had the health insurance canceled for his daughter, did not care if she was sick or hungry. He would force his daughter to eat something she did not like. He would hold the baby upside down and squeeze her really tight until she screamed. He would not even let his wife go to college. He did not let her finish high school, she only had 3 months left. He even forced her to have sex with him even though the physician told him not to have any intercourse, after he was diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease. He gave the sexually transmitted disease to his wife. She was sick for a whole year and he would not even take her to the doctor. He would tell her to go alone. When she went to the gynecologist, he left his infant crying on the floor and left his wife at the doctor's office.
He would not let his wife visit with her family and parents or go out. She would have to be up until 2 AM to cook food for him. She felt like a slave. He was broke because of all the money he spent on hookers---police found him naked in cars with hookers.
His wife even said in the letter that he is "a pathological professional actor and liar who would say anything to make himself appear innocent and not guilty."
I suggest you all read this letter. The link is below. It starts on page 89.

Look at Awkal's blog, he continually blames the victims for creating the circumstances that led him to kill them. He has no remorse. In his case documentation (at the link below), he continually explains his rationale and justifies his actions. Until this day, he has absolutely shown NO REMORSE. The only reason he is saying so now is to save his life! Just view the Fox 8 interview from 1998 where Awkal stated "I would repeat the murder a million times!!." Also, his defense lawyer David Singleton lacks credibility---he is a HUGE opponent of the death penalty! He is just doing this for the anti-death penalty campaign vs pro-death penalty without any regard to the victims or their family!
