    I feel confident that little Mariah would have wanted mental healthcare for her mother, not murder.

    I feel confident that Mariah would prefer to be alive and nowhere near her mother, ever.

    Melissa Lucio is very deserving in suffering the ultimate penalty for killing her own child under 16 years of age.

    Sadly, Mariah was denied that option. But that doesn't mean she would join in the cheers for her mother's murder.

    Anyone who cheers for the death of another human being should be ashamed.

    I don't know but if I were murdered at 2 years old and denied a chance at life I would want the killer punished whether it was my egg donor or not.

    Punished, confined, treated. There are many options other than murder.

    I have seen so many cases where the convicted person gets less time than a DUI or an assault. Manslaughter most of the time.

    Murder is murder regardless of the age of the victim. She should get a life sentence at the very least. imo

    She not only killed her child, she tortured her. I don't rejoice in the death penalty, not at all. All of her children will have to live with what she did and what was done to her. That will make it hard on them and I hate that for their sakes.

    I was totally shocked that she got the death sentence. That to me says premeditation at least in my state it does. She might have snapped and couldn't stop. Maybe she has a history of abuse of the other children.

    Murdering children is becoming a daily thing. It is time to make changes and its obvious what we are doing isn't working. This just breaks my heart!

    If a man murders his wife or vice versa what is the punishment? Should the murder of an innocent child be a lesser punishment? If the father had done this what would happen to him? Is she less evil because she was the child's mother. Does "snapping" give her an easy out? Would that give a father or boyfriend an easy out? No difference.............imo

    I would have no objection to LWOP, but I would like to see her thoroughly examined by psychiatric professionals--and not just to see if she meets the narrow legal definition of insanity.

    But even if someone believes the death penalty is just, cheering and happiness over the taking of a human life is just plain wrong.

    Taking a life unless it is absolutely necessary is allways immoral and wrong. The US is alone among civilized countries in that barbaric practice.
