PA - Raquel Carter, 16, found murdered, Homewood, 29 April 2001
A Wilkinsburg man who urinated on a teenage girl after plunging a knife into her throat was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder.
Justin Craig, 32, faces a mandatory life term in prison for the April 2001 slaying of Raquel Carter, 16, of East Hills. Carter -- a junior at Taylor Allderdice High School -- was found in a wooded area of Homewood, a broken knife blade still protruding from her neck.
Pittsburgh police arrested Craig last year after a DNA test linked him to a urine stain on Carter's pants. Craig had pleaded guilty in 1999 to a charge of indecent assault in connection with an attack on a woman in Wilkinsburg.

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?

No motive is necessary with these pervs. This was a classic case of escalation....starts off as indecent exposure, assault, burglary,peeping and then goes on if they are not stopped. We see so much of this, can you even imagine how detectives feel?

What the heck was wrong with the other jury?
"Another jury in July convicted Craig of an abuse of a corpse charge but deadlocked on the murder charge, forcing last week's new trial. Defense attorney Christopher Patarini argued during both trials that the urine stain was not enough to prove his client had actually killed Carter. "
Someone else stuck a knife in her throat, he just stumbled upon her body and decided to take a leak on her. Come on people!

2 years for abusing a corpse? Is that it? I gotta say, if you abuse a corpse, surely that is grounds for some serious psych evaluation?? Good Lord!Above is my opinion only

CP - that's just crazy. IMO, someone who abuses a corpse is a lot sicker than some murderers.Above is my opinion only
