That is the face of misery, that's for sure. What a horrible life this man must lead, and now he's a murderer. And what a miserable end for that poor woman. Its savage and digusting, a total waste...brutality of this sort is like something out of a movie, its hard to believe its even real.

Probably because that poor woman was trying to defend herself by fighting this monster back as best she could. He killed her, but he wore some licks also. This violence, when will it stop! And please,(Hot Mocha; aka Danni) don't say when OUR black men behave, because as you can see ,violence has no color preference. Sympathy to this woman's family.

I DO hope this is your attempt at being sarcastic. If not, then maybe we'll be reading about YOU one day as they cart YOU off to jail. I hope this is just an attempt to get a reaction to your post and that you truly, truly are NOT serious. NO ONE "deserves" to be hit, much less be beaten to death. No one. Not even YOU.

...the article said her son intervened...perhaps that is why he is cut and bruised. Probably just made him even angrier and more violent toward his girlfriend.

Tom is that all you have say about this crime and criminal ? Where is the rage ? He beat a white woman to death. I am sure that if someone other than mr. Charlie had committed this crime, you would be screaming as loud as one could get. Bottom line, crime is crime and I am sure this womans' relatives do not feel good because she was killed by one of her own as opposed to one of another hue.

Harry, I've said it a hundred times. People like this, that can not abide by the rules of society need to be dealt with harshly. This thug definately is a canidate for the death penality. When found guilty, don't waste tax payers dollars by feeding, housing, and giving him free medical attention for the rest of his sorry life.

I doubt he would qualify for the DP in SC. If I saw this creep on the street, I would run the other way.

What a shame this woman gave him the time of day.

I knew the murdered lady and her boyfriend. We used to all see each other in Gadget's in Lugoff and Lucy just started working there part-time. They gave no clue that problems were happening at home. Battered women should do whatever they can to GET OUT of a relationship like that...I understand it's hard but I don't want to see another acquaintance (who I met earlier this year and adored) buried b/c the hands of some punk. Glad that her son got to his a-- though.
