    Words fail me. This is so horrific. I hope this guy never sees the light of day again.

    I know this isn't anyone's fault but the defendant's, but why was a 17 year old girl out at 6am?

    Wow, what ugly actions. This poor girl, I have to agree on the question of why she was out all night.

    The articles say that she used to date his cousin and he got angry when she showed up with another guy.

    Ok, I've lied to my parents too, who hasn't. I wonder where she told them she was? As far as waiting an hour before calling anyone I think it had to do with underage drinking and their fear of being caught. JMO

    From March 2011:

    When detectives told him that Shelby had died, Craver shrugged his shoulders. "Okay. And?" Craver responded, according to Assistant District Attorney Alan Martin...

    But after pleading guilty Monday to second-degree murder, Craver, who was a rising senior on an athletic and academic scholarship at Mars Hill College, apologized for causing Shelby's death in the early morning hours of Aug. 7. Shelby died from internal bleeding after her liver was cut in half...

    Judge W. David Lee of Davidson Superior Court sentenced Craver to 12 years and three months to 15 years and six months in prison.
