Kentucky readers of this blog are more accustomed to stories about fraud, tax evasion, white-collar crimes or possibly drunk driving. For that reason, the recent conviction of a Kentucky man on multiple felony counts makes his alleged violent crime seem even more shocking.
According to local police, the 30-year-old man carjacked and kidnapped a couple, only to brutalize, sexually torture and murder them a short time later. The jury did not take long to deliberate before finding the man guilty on all 46 charges brought against him, including felony murder, robbery, and aggravated rape. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, with eligibility for parole only after serving 51 years.
