She would like nothing more than to have the Death Penalty because to her Death is freedom. I say lock her away for life, make her suffer, make her pay for her crime. Don’t allow her the easy way out. Log in to Reply Marland Fan May 10, 2013 Obviously that quiet, librarian look she assumed didn’t convince the jury.
