Please check out the fascinating article by journalist Alex Wukman that I posted the link to above.
Do you know how I’m always saying just once I wish one of these murderous troglodytes would actually admit to their crimes? You know, like the ones who shoot several people in front of witnesses then please not guilty? Well it seems one man on trial for capital murder did just that.
Darrell Wayne Parker was facing a possible death sentence, in Texas no less, for the shooting deaths of his mother and stepfather, Cathy Youngblood and Charles Youngblood. Parker seemed to be the type who couldn’t keep his nose clean and ended up having to live with his folks. He got into it with his stepfather when Parker didn’t do some chores that Mr. Youngblood asked him to so Parker gunned down Mr. Youngblood and his own mother who just happened to have breast cancer.
Parker pleaded not guilty but while testifying admitted to the crime.
“We all agree you are guilty of capital murder,” Nelson Barnes, prosecuting attorney, had asked Parker. A “yes, sir” then stumbled out of Parker’s mouth.
I would have paid good money to see the virtual aneurysm his defense attorney had. Subsequently Parker was sentenced to life without parole.
Not surprisingly there are plans to appeal but those plans seem to come from his attorney and not Parker himself at least that’s how it’s being portrayed in the press.
As usual I’m not doing the article justice so I urge you to go read it in its entirety.
