Hi, EdH.

I share your revulsion, and agree the sentence is too light. But murder? First it would haved to be proven that the injury was survivable (since he didn't cause it) -- and even if it were, the appropriate charge in most places is "negligent homicide."

In reply to: Murder?

as well as his neglect contributed to her death? And why was she drunk in the first place?

Too bad tghe death penalty doesn't apply. He richly dreserves it.

You don't think that raping her didn't move head?

In reply to: Murder?

and moving anyone carelessly with a head injury isn't negligent, it's compounding the injury.

First it would haved to be proven that the injury was survivable (since he didn't cause it)

Proven? don't forget the 'golden hour'. Care given in the first hour is worth more than what you get in the next day in severe trama. He conciously deprived her of that. He aggravated the injury by a fall down stairs after which McKee took her to his bed and raped her.

A postmortem examination revealed she was still alive when her stepfather raped her.

It found she had horrific injuries consistent with being raped with considerable force.

Picked her up, moved her to bed, raped her with considerable force that caused horrific injuries and the worse would be negligent homicide? At the least it amounts to a conspiracy to murder since he willingly aggravated her injuries, even if he didn't cause them.

A rather sensationalised headling article but from it si , who was in the house, found her unconscious and couldn?t wake her.

Believing that her state was down to the drink and drugs she had taken, her aunt put her in the recovery position while she left to find her mother.

She told McKee not to move Kerry but, after she left, he lifted his stepdaughter upstairs and put her into his bedroom.

At 2.15am, a friend who was staying in the house went to say goodnight to McKee and found him in bed with Kerry.

Half an hour later, Kerry?s sister Amanda and her brother Anthony returned to see how she was.

Americans do. Their moral fibre has been undermined, and left without an anchor. It's both outrageous and sad. However, Americans are rapidly catching up.

Shoulda' been zero ........
by MarciaB / February 24, 2006 12:28 AM PST

... an eye for an eye would suit me fine in this case.

Maybe while in prison he will meet "Bubba." And maybe "Bubba" will take a real liking to him. And maybe "Bubba" will treat him in the same way the stepdaughter was treated.

I believe that is about the only sentence imposed that could reflect the revulsion I feel for this perpetrator. Sad

IMO the Brits should reestablish the death penalty for just such a case. Their old guillotine would make it quick.

Why heavens yes, even the word Guillotine is a French word.
by John Robie / February 25, 2006 12:47 AM PST

It was named after Dr. Guillotin of Paris, France.
I'm sure most people would wonder or need to look up the meaning of Halifax Gibbbet, if I used that term, which was what people in England called the Guillotine that was used there from the 13th to the 17 Centry.

The Earl of Morton, had one built in Edinburgh in 1556, which became known as the Maiden and lasted until 1710.

I believe even little kids know about the Guillotine:

Hopefully someone in prison will do the right thing by him.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
