Rest in peace Frankie, and although I wish his sentence were more severe, I am so glad that your killer will be behind bars for a long time. Prayers for peace to the Segura family.

I don't know the family although I must say I have followed the story. It is very very sad that a life was taken but justice has prevailed finally! It is a shame that something like this will have such am impact on so many people especially the children. I hope they get counseling.

You took the words right out from under me. I suppose Charles Manson was a good person, somewhere, somehow but it never mattered to Sharon Tate or the La Bianca's.

Oh, you can blow someone's head off and you are "not a bad person?"

Wow. Whole family is on crack. But they'll have their hands full taking care of his kids while he sits in jail like the Good Good Boy that he is.

If one is facing life in prison, no matter what they plea, why not gamble and plead not guilty.

From what I've heard about juries in Santa Fe, it's a good gamble.

This scum bag deserves the Death Penalty. Too Bad that newley elected DA took it off the table, and too bad that Gov. Kickback Richardson signed that stupid bill abolishing the Death Penalty.

Any parent is going to stick up for their child no matter what they do. This is the reason for the father saying his son was a good person. I don't buy it one bit.

Hope this guy rots in Prison. Too bad it can't be for the rest of his life. 30 years he'll be an old man, still capable of wrong doing.

That's justice for you.

Wow..we're going to talk about how Frank's such a great Dad...hmmmm is that why is own children have a restraining order on him? Its okay for him to bite woman all over their bodies and kick their teeth in? The police didn't protect her!! She had to call someone who would protect her. Looks like the police failed to protect this young lady and failed to protect Frank since he was their RAT!!!!
Bella Tapia-You have no room to talk when you have a worthless son who has dealt drugs and has beat several women...numerous restraining orders. What's worse? Beating and killing a man or verbally and physically abusing woman that have to deal with what your son has done to them everyday? YOU ROT in your home knowing what a failure of a mother you are!
I would have to say that killing a man execution style is just a "little bit worse" than verbally and physically abusing someone. Time for a reality check homes.

A father's love for his children is unending... John Sr... Keep the love strong in your heart, no matter the circumstances. Love is enduring...

My condolences to the Segura family. I too wish the death penalty was still on the table. My daughter was killed the same way, two bullets to the head. Her killer still breathes, in prison. Segura family, stay strong.

Our children can do no harm, so... some parents think. They (son's/daughter's) have halo's and wings.
However, the truth of the matter is simply this we're too deep in the forrest to see the tree's.
My son/daughter? Never! It's not true, I don't believe it.

Here is my take on the story - Frank did not under any circumstances deserve to die, especially execution style; yes he did some dumb, stupid things and he knew that but his punishment should not have been death by execution. I am a parent and yes I too think that no matter what our children do, we will love them and support them, after all what kind of a parent are we if we turn our backs on our own flesh and blood, however I
think LaBombard is a coward for doing what he did. Maybe at one time he was a "good soldier" but not anymore, he has disgraced the armed forces by committing murder. I hope that Frank is resting in peace with his little brother Justin and I do hope that My prayers go out to Lil and all of the Segura family, I pray that you all find strength to move forward. As for the girlfriend that was supposedly beaten by Frank, I hope you understand what a horrible thing you have done, and I hope that the Lord can forgive for your part in Frank' death. Mr. LaBombard Sr., I know you love your son and I hope that your grandchildren will grow up knowing that what their father did was WRONG and I hope they learn a valuable lesson from this. Peace and prayers to all who have suffered from this horrific crime, especially Frank.

you can't believe everything you read in the papers. What LaBombard did was wrong. His family, however, is looking at what he did with clear eyes. Segura's family, however, is painting him out to be a saint. I'm not saying he deserved to die, I'm saying the road he was on it was inevitable that he would've ended up in prison or dead. He knew what his decisions would cost him and he chose to "help the police with the drug scene", because he would rather do that than face life in jail for his own drug trafficking and rape charges.
By the way, why isn't anyone saying anything about his accomplice only getting charged with 2nd degree murder and only facing a few years in jail?
