  1. The is just too unbearable to read. Is that man who committed the murder of that tender age boy normal?

    What on earth could have justify the killing of an innocent boy who should be under your care and protection? This is surely an evil and satanic way of expressing your anger or dissatisfaction if at all your brother done you wrong.

    If he committed the murder under a normal health condition,then he should be sentence to life imprisonment. And for the fact that he’s still pleading not guilty,shows his lack of regret,contrite spirit and remorsefulness in him.

    He really does not deserve any counsel to represent him in the matter because the criminal act he committed was senseless and evil.

    Tying a stone around the waist of your bother’s child and drowning him in a river just like that…just too wicked and evil of him.
