    You betcha. MO just gave Michael Wood the death penalty in Greene County (Springfield) for the kidnap, rape and murder of Hailey Owens almost 4 years ago. With the quadruple murder in St. Louis this year and now this triple murder, the death penalty qualified lawyers are spread all over the state. Wood's attorneys have already filed an appeal to Supreme Court.

    In my opinion MO needs to start exterminating those that do these incomprehensible
    things.

    Seems to me that he had hoped the baby wouldn’t make it through the night, and when he realized that she did, he felt like the had to do something else. This is horrible. The killing of something so precious and innocent is something I just can’t comprehend.

    That is truly horrific! Killing a 17 month old in cold blood?!! What kind of person is capable of something like that? I can't imagine that the State wont seek a death sentence.

    cases like this test my staunch no-death-penalty-ever-under-any-circumstances stance.

    Reading the latest makes me feel sick to my stomach.

    Throw the knife 20 miles away. Toss the vehicle registration 30 miles away. Bury the family 40 miles away.

    But place the victims truck right behind my house? Smh.

    This guy deserves the death penalty asap.

    No words. Every time I think “this is the worst possible”, and every time a monster proves me wrong. Heartbroken. Disgusted.

    Some acts are so depraved and horrible that I need to step away. I'm so grateful he is behind bars and appreciate the people in professions where they can't step away because they have the obligation to seek justice.

    I hear you elementallLaura. Some times there are threads I either have to not look at at all, or I have to walk away for a while to take a break. A case like this just physically makes me ill. By all accounts I have read this guy has confessed to everything. I'll be interested to know what it was that set him off.

    I believe Drew Atchison has known the family for years and has been close to them. The family not only has to deal with the shock and loss of family but also that of who killed them. Drew also has a daughter about the same age as Willa, which makes it even more mind boggling. All this due to statements made by CS. There were posts made yesterday that the Sherriff requested they be taken down in an effort to be able to get a Jury when that time arrives.

    I have never seen a case where the Court goes directly to a Counsel Status Hearing so quickly. They must know they are going for the Death Penalty.

    01/31/2018
    Counsel Status Hrng Scheduled
    Scheduled For: 02/15/2018; 9:00 AM ; RANDY PAUL SCHULLER; Wayne Circuit Division
    Arraignment Held

    I’ve never, ever been more horrified than I am right now..... and I have followed hundreds of cases here on WS. Y’all, he pulled the trigger three times. As a momma, imaging the fear in this sweet baby is almost more than I can take.

    “Atchison admitted to investigators he shot the weapon three times. On the first shot, the weapon malfunctioned. On the second shot he missed the child, and the third shot struck her.”

    That means he was pre-meditated three separate times. I think when they give him the needle they should only give him enough to put him so sleep the first two times and let him wake up. Then tell him "we're just practicing". On the third, let him have it.

    I’m not a evil person. But I just watched a episode of Black Mirror and the person was electrocuted over and over again as part of a museum. Was chilling.
    In this case it fits.
