Heartbreaking to think that the woman's last memory is having been beaten to death by the child that she raised to manhood. His picture and the description of his previous arrest tell me that no matter how well she tried to raise him, he's nothing but a thug and deserves to spend the remainder of his life in a jail cell.

Chambersburg has lots of news and it's all sad. This woman dies from a beating, a woman is killed in an auto collision on Warm Spring Rd, and the huge fire at Letterkenny. Why is it that bad news gets the attention and good news is relatively unnoticed? Is our society that sick?

I don't mean this rudely - it's just an observation. But you chose to click on this story, read it and comment. Yes, bad news sells better than good news.

No. Our society isn't sick. We fell into a supposed moral trap. We have lost our battle and we will lose the war for the sake of profit,power and some sort of gain. I don't know about the rest of the world but i'm cutting out. Screw it.

He deserves the death penalty!

I feel so sorry for the victim. She gave this person a life and a home.
By the way, where is the story in the Public Opinion about the fatality accident on the Warm Spring Road last evening where a 35 yr. old woman was killed. It is on other news.

You can't get anymore defenseless as sleeping in your own bed. My sympathies are with the family, I hope he spends the rest of his life in jail making new 'friends'.

Death penalty should be on the table for this thing. I can't even call him a person, he beat his own mother to near death and then left her there. If he would do that to his mother (adopted or not she was still his mother), he wouldn't think twice to do it to just anyone.
I hope this woman's family and friends find some kind of peace through all of this senselessness.

I'm at a loss at how a family comprehends the circumstances of her loss. How in the world does what's supposed to be the precious relationship between mother and son go so unspeakably wrong?

I'd like to know why all his rage was projected onto his Mother. There is a reason no matter how twisted it is. She took him in and raised him yes but that doesn'tt mean there wasn't severe dysfunction within their relationship.
Dean I disagree with your statement. You act as if Mother's are the dearest and nurturing of beings and the fact is mothers have the power to make or break a child. Not all mothers deserve respect.
I don't know this woman nor do I know what type of mother she was I am voicing another side. Noone deserves to be murdered.

Trail by jury of peers. Conviction of first-degree murder. Sentence: death by lethal injection.

I miss you too, Aunt Consie. I will always cherish all the talks we used to have from home improvements to football and our beloved Steelers, watching our Steelers play on the little TV in the kitchen while you fixed Sunday dinner or listening to it on the radio while we were at Jamals football games with the Cburg Steelers. You instantly became a part of our family and allowed us to become a part of yours and we will cherish every moment that we had with you. I love you, Aunt Consie. You ARE the best!!

This is exactly why people have no regard for human life anymore. There's always a vehicle in a scum bag lawyer that presents the alibi and protects the criminal. Why can't there be some things that are just wrong? Didn't it used to be that way?

Frankly, I hope the best defense he requires (and loses) will be that of his testicles when the news breaks of her death in the day room of the prison. Big bad inmates love their ma-mas.

I don't underestimate what mommy's actions/non-actions can do to a person internally nor do I condone murder of another human being, no doubt he will pay for his actions.
You have to ask why or how one can be capable of doing this to their mother and once you begin psychoanalyzing the dynamics of their relationship you begin to understand a criminal mind.

Current weather tidbit & story:

With the heavy rains in Northern FL right now, I can't help but think of Weeki Wachee, FL. In 1979 a bunch of us piled up in an old station wagon and headed to FL for spring break. All my roommates that year were from Lima, OH. I don't think they had been anywhere but Bowling Green. They were one happnin' bunch--weekend suitcasers. The one roommate took it upon herself to plan out this whole trip (she lived for going home on weekends to work at KFC).

So we get on the road, share the driving and the trip goes alright. My 1st indication that this could not have been the best trip decision I ever made was what turned out to be the destination. Their idea of FL spring break was to literally cross the Georgia/Florida line. Vacation spot--Weeki Wachee, 1.0 square mi. with a population of 12.

Our accommodations were three tents provided by the KFC girl. The Lima girls' boyfriends were "in charge" of pitching these things and they pointed them downhill toward a pond of scum. The first night very heavy rains slid our tents right down the hill. I went and found the KOA "clubhouse" and bought a six-pack of beer. The one boyfriend who lived for the Mork and Mindy show asked me if I was going to drink "all that beer."

The next day we piled up in the old truck of the Mork & Mindy guy and headed for the beach. Great! The guy drove us around all day; we never stepped on sand. The next day, one other girl and I hung out at the KOA campground swimming pool. Twenty-six hours driving to sit at a pool in FL with with no excitement around. We both got so burnt, we had to walk around with wet, cold towels on our arms the whole next day. That's when we ended up back in the truck and somebody got the bright idea to stop at a tourist trap. One of the couples got separated in the event and fought and cried the whole way home to Weeki Wachee.

Shortly after that, we drove home. And I made up for it the next year in Miami & Daytona while they were probably at some KOA again with KFC.
