That was pretty much a forgone conclusion. I'm wonder if this frack was on physcotic medications since he was a violent killer. I can't believe while in prison he didn't under go physciatric treatment especially for the excessively violent nature of his crime(beating his grandmother to death with a hammer).

Makes you wonder since he completed his sentence in full-16 years prison and 8 years parole he stopped taking some mandatory medications over the last several years. Or started other drugs that affected any progress and treatment he had in reguards to his behavior.

Still find it hard to believe he didn't have any incidents since he completed parole in 2006.
