Death? So what

So Melvin Knight gets the death penalty for torturing and murdering Jennifer Daugherty. Now he'll sit on death row with John Lesko and Michael Travaglia. Who better to get advice from on how to avoid the needle for the next 60 years?

The death penalty in Pennsylvania is a joke!

We'll be seeing and hearing plenty of Melvin in the future. Many of us will be long gone before these three get their due.
