    Since Hanging the corporal will not bring back the dead girl, I dont think it is wise for him to be hanged.

    Why too Long to bring to justice the killer of 3 years old girl? Our bench should always do the right thing at the right time.

    That serves him right. He got what he deserved. But come to think of it, hanging him will not bring back the dead little girl, losing another life is not the best judgement and does not proffer any solution. I can feel the pain and agony caused to the family of the deceased, GOD ALMIGHTY will grant you the strength to bear it.
