    MAYWOOD, Ill. – The owner of a suburban Chicago apartment house had his maintenance man set fire to the building, killing seven people including a newborn, because he wanted to cash in on a $250,000 insurance policy, prosecutors said Friday.

    The landlord told police he wanted the house burned when the children living there were at school. Instead, authorities allege, the maintenance man started the fire on a Sunday morning when residents were sleeping inside.

    "The sheer greed alone is difficult enough to understand, but the inhumanity of this crime is almost beyond comprehension," said Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez.

    O.K. forgive my ignorance. What's a moratorium? That Catholic school education my dad paid for sure paid off, right? Naw, I'm kidding it's because I didn't pay attention.

    Here's a link if you scroll down a Governor Ryan in 2000 installed a moratorium about the death penalty? May God Bless those poor people. I mean you can't get any worse than setting people on fire while their children are home on a Sunday morning!:furious:
