“...reduced his ‘moral culpability’ for his crimes.” Having committed the crimes as a man in his 40’s, he is morally culpable, regardless of the damage done to him as a child. What a waste of time and money.


Agreed Sponge...this waste of space should have been terminated a long time ago. Now the family and friends have to re-live this all over again.


Talk about a waste of time. What can he possibly say about his childhood that would inspire the court to overlook his actions as an adult? It's not like he didn't know he did wrong--he left her body on the tracks hoping she would be mangled by a train and hide his crimes. Spending the rest of his life under the ax is exactly what he deserves. Too bad it's unlikely to fall.


A case that still haunts me today....I will always remember her name. The sound of people’s voices on the phone calling in when they found her. They won’t forget either. She was a child too.
