    The court document says sheriff's officers found her father lying face down on a bed with what appeared to be one or two gunshot wounds to his head, and telling a sheriff's lieutenant: "I don't want to be here anymore."

    From March 2013:

    http://www.chiefads.com/news/local/f...9bb2963f4.html

    As he did through much of his first-degree murder trial, John Wesley French Jr. stared off into the distance as a guilty verdict was reached for each of his three charges stemming from the death of his daughter.

    French, 34, was immediately sentenced to life in prison without parole, a mandatory term for the first-degree murder charge.
