    I worked with her father, Ricky. I want the killer to know how sweet, caring and wonderful these people were. Ricky and his wife, had the same birthday and the same date of death.

      You dumbazz, sweet, wonderful caring don’t have boyfriends like this. Birds of a feather flock together.

    Since it is reported the killer is willing to serve life in prison for his crimes, why are the prosecutors going to trial seeking the death penalty? Seems like the expense and burden of a trial can be spared. The remaining family will not have to endure a trial.

      LEEBOY that is what we all want to know. The DA is trying to further her agenda and sway votes since she is running again. This DA has cost more unnecessary tax payer dollars to go to waste than needed. She recently accepted a plea from a cop killer but rejected this one. DOES NOT SOMETHING SEEM FISHY TO YOU??

        He killed my family in cold blood in front of his own daughter …I think the stealth penalty is most appropriate in this situation . Forget the fishy smell … I want the smell of justice !

      Ha..it would be alot cheaper to just put this bottom feeder in the ground,,at least then he could be productive as fertilizer.

      Looks can be deceiving and until you know the full story, PLEASE don’t take what the media feeds you as truth to be “that”.. this young man comes from a very respectful family and has a praying mother and sisters who are all hurting behind this. There are 2 families hurting here and everyone shares the pain.

        @CHE’…ok CHE, he comes from a respectful family etc…i can believe that. But! he killed these people..that makes him wrong and did the devil’s due. He took several lives. Do you feel that? I dont think people are blaming his mother or father. We blame him and his actions. I am also judging him by calling him a MURDERER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        @CHE..i thought you were saying, dont judge him, he comes from a respectful family etc….
        sorry, i re-read you comments. I am so emotional about this. Ricky and his family went through horror. After it is all said and done, Ricky, his wife and daughter are with Jesus.

    Too bad we don’t have caning as a punishment for certain crimes like Singapore. This miscreant could use about 100 strokes. We could all watch him cry like a little girl.

    @Guest, by no stretch of the classic imagination did I say what he did was right, justified or natural. What I am saying is that we are always ready to accept what mainstream media gives us and pass judgement on it. NO i have never killed anyone or committed any major crime but my Bible tells me, ” judge not lest ye be judged”…it also tells me that NO sin is greater than another and we have ALL sinned…matter of fact, some of us are doing it now by passing judgement as well as our thoughts towards another…those of u that want him to die for what he did, u r no better than him…” so as a man thinketh”…u may as well do it because it’s in your heart..my point is we should NOT be so quick to judge without knowing more about what happened and we will NEVER know the truth!! This was a tragic event and these 2 families were connected so they are both hurting just differently and some have hurt and anger..Little Jordan has lost the most..we should be focusing more on healing the hurt and not so much on the one that caused the hurt….I will leave this alone but I forgave the woman that killed my father and I pleaded for her in court…so i know, all too well what these families feel..

      I read all the comments everybody said but yours stuck out to me the most because its so truthful. But don’t everybody see it at your point of view cause they never been in a situation like that. I never been in one either but I do believe it is best to know the whole story before assuming. Overall my heart and prayers goes out to your lost and thiers as well. May God bless you and them to heal and forgive.

      This young man knew what he had planned on doing. That was not an unintentional act he committed. He was abusive towards Pashea, that is the reason she wanted out of the relationship. So yes, it is easy to assume the news is reporting what happened. Unless you are very close to the family, you can only go by here say. While Joydan was riding in the backseat with my granddaughter one day, I glanced in the rearview mirror as she made a statement referencing her “Papa” (grandfather) calling her “child”. It was though she was having a conversation with him. Every time I see her, I think of this wonderful child left alone without the love of her mother, and that of her grandparents. She has her good days and bad ones. Once Fisher and Shaneika welcomed little Paige into the world two years ago, that has made her act as a big sister. Regardless if this young man had praying parents, he should have stopped to think about all the other people his act would affect, especially that of his child.

      I will forgive him for killing my family …. That is of course after he receives the death penalty and justice is served .
