    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    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?

    I can't think of a more painful or horrifying way to die. This man must never be released to threaten society again. I can't imagine what kind of person it would take to do something like this.

    According to court documents filed in the murder case against Harris, Ferguson ran to a neighbors home after being burned and was followed by Harris. According to witness statements Ferguson was sitting in a chair at the neighbors home as Harris was telling her to shut up and not to say a word. One of the witnesses noticed Ferguson was unclothed and severely burned and as the neighbor helped Ferguson, she claimed Ferguson told her Harris poured gas on her and lit her on fire.

    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    That should be the case even if the victim doesn't die. In this case, she did, but anyone who chooses to light someone else on fire regardless of the outcome should be sentenced to death.

    From February 2014:

    http://swtimes.com/news/talihina-man...friend-s-death

    Following a Dec. 18 LeFlore County jury’s recommendation and specifying death by lethal injection, District Court Judge Jon Sullivan imposed the sentence on Donnie Lee Harris Jr., 31, for the March 9, 2012, death of Kristi Ferguson, 25, of Pocola.

    The jury found Harris guilty of dowsing Ferguson with gasoline in the late night hours of Feb. 18, 2012, then setting her afire. Ferguson suffered burns, most of them third-degree, over 42.5 percent of her body. Ferguson died 19 days later of complications from her injuries.
