In Oklahoma, the death penalty results in an automatic appeal.

    That’s exactly what the punishment should be but the ACLU would sue saying it’s ‘cruel and unusual’ punishment. Yeah, it really was, if the young lady were still alive she’d agree. Smoke him!

      If she was here it wouldn’t be like this. None of u know the truth and what is being flaunted as the truth isn’t at all what went on. I don’t care who talks down on my comment because i know what really was going on. Its way bigger than what anyone has saw threw the media.

    I hope this sadistic piece of human waste dies a very unpleasant death. That is about as cruel as a person can get.

    I wonder how many priors for domestic abuse this guy had?
