Jury Recommends John Couey be Executed for Murder of 9-Year-Old Jessica Lunsford

John Couey in court during his sentencing hearing for the rape and murder of Jessica Lunsford.
A jury took just over an hour Wednesday to decide that John Evander Couey should be executed for the kidnapping, rape and murder of 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford.

The jury, on a 10-2 vote, brushed aside pleas for mercy and a life sentence from defense lawyers based on claims that Couey, 48, is mentally retarded and suffers from chronic mental illness.

The final decision on Couey's fate will be made in several weeks by Circuit Judge Richard Howard, who is not bound by the jury's recommendation but is required to give it "great weight."


Hopefully, the judge will carry out this judgement. Jessica Lundsford never had a chance.

Mercy? My ass. Chronic mental illness? Was he supervised? Apparently not, he killed a child. He deserves to die. Sound harsh? Stiff bikkies. Jessica isn't here to enjoy life, why should he be (and spare me the "he won't/doesn't enjoy life rhetoric, please)?

IF he is indeed the killer and guilty - just don't provide him with an easy death!
Provide him an experience worse than death, such that he begs for death but doesn't get it...

I'm sure there's quite a few jail-birds who would love to make him one of their girlfriends.

It's unfortunate that he'll live longer on death row during his appeals process than Jessica lived in her entire life. It's also too bad that he'll go out through a lethal injection as opposed to the brutal, horrific, sickening way he murdered her. But all in all this is as close to justice as our current legal system allows. Wonder what was on the minds of the two nutjobs on the jury who voted against?

I really think death is too easy an escape for monsters like this. I'm sure we could think of something less "knee-jerk" that would be a much more horrible for the people who do such things.

Exactly! I like the locked in a dark cell for decades idea myself.

I can't help but think that those who advocate killing this man are motivated by money. Any of you who claim to be religious should be down right ashamed of yourselves. Those motivated by money should just think. I know that his crime was heinous. Killing is wrong.

Yes, killing is wrong. So this man is getting punished for it. Better yet, he raped her. IMNSHO he deserves to be castrated with a coke bottle in his cell an hour before they process him. He gets no sympathy from me. None.

He deserves a brutal, painful death, like the one he provided his victim. But we do the best we can, and because we're merciful we let him file innumerable appeals to delay his sentence, and when the time comes we lay him down and knock him out peacefully.

 confused  Whiskey tango foxtrot are you talking about?? Could you explain 1) who gets money when this scum meets his just fate and 2) why that would be more of a motivation than justice for a 9 year old girl who was kidnapped, repeatedly raped, and buried alive?

The perception that the death penalty costs the general public less than a lifetime internment. Common parlance is that appeals and some such cost more than a lifetime in prison. I'm all for streamlining the process, but I will never advocate the killing of another human being. I'm happy to pay for them to rot in prison. Never will I play God. Feel free to do so, but know that the ice is thin.

I'd be fine with him getting his just desserts in prison. I just cannot advocate killing anyone. It's not my place to do so.

Yeah I don't really trust Ghandi. You know how much he spent in order to live in poverty? How much money he cost others in order for him to be the humble poor.... ok I'll hold my tongue.... person he appeared to be?

Sure, he might have looked good... but IMO he was all smoke and mirrors.

However, I do respect your opinion.
