Just wanted to say that Chris is a strong man. He took what the judge said and didnt complain at at, he said whatever it is I will deal with it. Chris contributed to society, unlike most of you. He was a hard working man who did whatever he could to help others. He upheld his promise to Kristen's parents and NEVER once changed his story, even took and PASSED the polly test....come one guys tell me one person that can do that?!? No prior criminal history...OMG it sounds like a murder OMG let me think NO....get a grip people and leave the poor man alone. All he wants is to heal from loosing his beautiful wife. If they were getting a divorce why would she give him cards and have sex with him that night? Really why dont you open your eyes, shut your fucking mouths and read the damn story for once. If you dont see the truth in it then i guess your illiterate and need to go back to school for an education! Chris we love and support you!!!! Your in my prayers and thoughts. I cant wait to see you walk out the doors and start your life with the people that love you! Ill be writing and seeing you soon!

Poor man lost his wife, Now has to spend the next 6 years in jail,What does that have to do to with contributing to society. What does jail do . It was an accident a mistake, Its not like a drug dealer,or a thief that plans on crime. He should have got probation. The man has never been in trouble before, a spotless record.Thats what is wrong with todays society also, A marriage is for life you just don't throw that away after 1 year. Maybe he just could not take it anymore. Total bull the whole case stinks he should be back at work contributing to society, not in jail with tax payers taking care of him. Jail is worthless, It makes NO sense.
"An accident a mistake" "he should be back at work contributing". With that thought process a first time drunk driver that kills someone should just be working the next day. They didn't do it on purpose, they were just really stupid is all. They had a clean record before this. This character hunted all his life, come on, how do you ever allow this to happen. Real man would turn on the light and face the "intruder", protect his wife, ensure she is safe before doing anything else.

Chirs was a wonderful man. Kristen loved him very much. He is willing to pay for what he has done. I do no wish this on anyone. I hope who all is involved will accept his punishment and forgive. He does not deserve to sit in jail. He isn't a murder.

I've made a ton of mistakes in my life. None of them have resulted in the death of someone else. Big difference.

You obviously did not know him well then, either you are a bad judge of character or is it, birds of a feather flock together?
still so sad

We are still mourning the loss of Kristin, it is not something we are likely to get over quickly. We hope and pray that healing will happen now that proceedings are over. Senseless and reckless yes, and our hearts still ache for the beautiful life lost.

Amy-SERIOUSLY!!!! You really have no idea how the legal system works do you? Manslaughter is a totally different charge than first degree murder. First Degree Murder is charged when premeditation is involved (Planning to kill someone ahead of time). The sentencing is different for both charges. Before you start spouting off about the differences in these two cases know the law so you don't appear as ignorant when you post comments on a wall for the entire world to read. Besides how well do you know Ronald Harshman Sr. Or should I ask which Ronald Harshman Sr. you know Jekyll or Hyde. You are totally clueless on the Harshman trial read the transcripts and discovery documents. Better yet visit him in prison I know he provides a very entertaining set of lies. Maybe then you will consider twice beofe saying poor Ronald Harshman Sr.

This case of Christopher Jones is no less than an outrage. He murdered that poor girl intentionally after she asked for a divorced. I knew her through working with her mother and I KNOW it was cold-blooded murder.
How is it that a man who deliberately murders his wife gets 6-14 years for manslaughter when an innocemt man (Ronald Harshman, Sr.) is serving lfe in prison (for first-degree murder) for threatening to kill the man who stole his wife with no evidence (no body, no weapon)other than 2 .25 caliber shells?
What is our justice system coming to? But, more so, what country do we really live in? Afghanistan, where it is perfectly acceptable to kill one's wife in cold blood if she so much as displeases her husband? Or America?
