Yes 25 years for 1st degree murder. Unless they can show he's a dangerous offender he may serve longer. He probably will not get a chance for parole until 25 years.
IMO the abduction and murder charges have been proven. Although he was not the one to abduct Tori, he put TLM up to it, knowing she would. The chances of him pulling off an abduction on his own would be much more difficult. The murder charge will stick because MR helped TLM dispose of Tori no matter what he claims he was doing while TLM was swinging that hammer. IMO he's guilty because he didn't go to LE with what he stumbled upon after his little stroll, IF
we are to believe the defense's theory. Personally I don't buy it.
Now it's just a case of showing the sexual assault which would back up motive as to why Tori was abducted. With all these women coming forward testifying they had a relationship with MR, goes to show his need for sex and not necessarily to show he was seeking a long term relationship. There is sexual dysfunction going on somewhere in MR's mind and relationships. It would interesting and helpful to see a psychiatric report on him.
