After a 20 year stop on state executions. The US has executed 16+ state inmates and another one announced today. This involved an especially brutal murder of a young life who had nothing to do with the original crime. She just happened to be the sister of a man who was involved in the original crime. Unfortunately, she was the only one in the house when accomplices came for some retribution. They kidnapped her and repeatedly raped her then killed her so she could not identify them. With this wicked act, a young life with so much potential an honour roll student was extinguished. She would not achieve her dream of being a doctor. The man found guilty of her killing did show remorse after sentencing. His lawyer, however, was still adamant that the trial was unfair for not being representative of the sentenced man’s skin colour.
