    Wow, I grew up in Charleston. This is so sad.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    I was coming home from Sams Club on 526 today and you could see the trailer with the crime scene tape around the yard.

    It was a woman and her four kids. She has a fifth kid in college. When Simmons was arrested he told the deputies to tell Mr. Gene he was sorry.
    Gene is the brother in law. No words for the sister or the woman's son who was in college. Youngest kid was 6.
    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?

    Simmons' erratic behavior, coupled with a diagnosis of dementia, led Circuit Judge Kristi Harrington to determine that he is mentally unfit to stand trial in the killings of his wife and her four children in 2006.

    The decision sparked angry reactions from relatives of the victims, who are convinced that Simmons is putting on a show to escape prison time for shooting to death 39-year-old Detra Rainey and her children, ages 6 to 16, inside their North Charleston mobile home...

    The judge's ruling paves the way for Simmons, 43, to be confined indefinitely in a secure state mental hospital... Solicitor Bruce Durant said prosecutors remain skeptical, particularly since Simmons' dementia set in after his arrest.
