Thank God they caught this thug! Hopefully, justice will be swift and finale. I have seen "some" trying to defend him, but what is there to defend? He was in a home, to commit a crime, with a gun. There is no way to defend his actions.

How could anybody defend this guy?! He took an innocent kids life. He doesn't deserve to be defended!

Senseless does not come close to describing this crime. A family is ruined by the actions of this waste of oxygen I wish the Dad had been able to kill him also, maybe death row can get him
