    Maybe he thought he was playing and had the emotional maturity of a 4 year old .. I am guessing she found it none to fun or "play Like"


    He is getting what he deserves.

    3/1/2006, 1:31 a.m. ET By MARC LEVY
    The Associated Press
    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) A woman who fell to her death from a 23rd-floor apartment first wanted to sit on the window ledge, and when she couldn't touch the window in the apartment below with her feet, asked her boyfriend for help, he told police.

    That was when Kevin P. Eckenrode said he lost his grip on Rachel M. Kozlusky, according to an arrest affidavit filed by a Harrisburg police detective. Kozlusky crashed through a skylight in the awning and landed on the pavement in front of the apartment building Saturday evening.

    Man Receives Sentence For Girlfriend's Fatal Fall

    Feb 21, 2007 9:50 pm US/Eastern

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) ― A man convicted of involuntary manslaughter in his girlfriend's fatal fall from his 23rd-story apartment window was sentenced Wednesday to 11 1/2 to 23 months behind bars.

    Kevin P. Eckenrode, 26, will become eligible for work release after serving three months in Dauphin County Prison, and county Judge Richard A. Lewis agreed to let the Scranton native serve his work release in Lackawanna County.

    A jury acquitted Eckenrode of third-degree murder last month in the Feb. 25, 2006, death of Rachel Kozlusky, 23, which occurred after they had both spent hours drinking heavily. At his sentencing Wednesday, he apologized to her family.

    Eckenrode also was sentenced to 24 months' probation and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service by talking to young people about the dangers of alcohol abuse. He will be barred from consuming alcohol during his probation and required during the first six months to wear an electronic bracelet that alerts authorities if he drinks.

    snip

    Jennifer Storm, director of the Dauphin County victim and witness assistance program, said after the hearing that Eckenrode should have been sentenced to state prison instead.

    "The punishment here does not seem to fit the crime," Storm said.
