Here's a little background on this guy. I recall when this story broke, here in California.
Juan Corona - The Machete Murderer
Juan Corona was a labor contractor who hired migrant workers for produce fields in California. In a murder spree lasting six weeks, he raped and murdered 25 men and buried their machete-hacked bodies in the orchards owned by local farmers.

The Corona case is the first serial killer-related story where I can remember live "breaking news!" features being used to interrupt scheduled evening programming nationally, as more bodies were discovered.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

Corona was denied parole for another five years. Since he's 82 now, hopefully he won't be around for another parole hearing. I can't even believe his sentence included the possibility of parole but he was sentenced in the early 80's and it seems sentences were much more lax back then.
