there should be two types of murder, Murder and Self Defense, all these types and degrees is B S they way I see it, and TRULLY Ronnie Kennendy did not kill Stewart in self defense , Ronnie went to Stewart's home With a Gun and shot him down at home , now folks if we cant be safe at home where else can we go,????? people say Ronnie is in bad health, well that maybe but he was able to go to Stewart's home and pull the trigger and MURDERED a fine Man at home,,,, SHAME ON YOU RONNIE, YOU JUST REMEMBER GOD KNOWS AND HE WILL GIVE A FAIR JUSTICE ,IN HIS TIME.

Ronnie has traded his WHEEL CHAIR in for a SUV. He no longer has to be pushed around by son-in-law. He and Shirley can go to Wal-Mart, he can now walk (without wheel chair) , breath (without oxygen tank). He is so blessed in this world, To have a family like he has. Stewart would have been so so proud of his family members doing so well. I hope he and Pap are looking done on you all right now,( I couldn't imagine what he would think). If he was here he would be having coffee with his Moma this morning, making sure she was ok, but he is not here, because (your greedy family) made that choice. R.I.P. Stewart Davidson ( Love You Bunches )

Who are you trying to kid. You are insane, apparantly you were not at the trail. Who gives a rats @ss who his friends were. Or what his habits were. That did not give anyone the right to take his life. Drugs or friends did not committ MURDER, Ronnie did! He was convicted of murder. What part do you not understand? So before you take it upon yourself to make statements, let's make sure everyone knows that is just your opinion not a true fact. And,yes I knew Stewart and his (loving) family very well.. I could tell you truthful things about all of you that would make your hair stand on end.So well leave it at that. Don't tell me I don't know!!! Love You Bunches!
