Cook Memorial Cemetery in Liberty, with its historic graves, some of which are more than 150 years old, seems the perfect final resting place for Anne-Christine Johnson — peaceful, quiet and beautiful, said Stephanie Johnson, her mother.

I really wonder why prosecutors accepted a 30 year deal that will put him back out on the street at 65.

30 years or (15) in reality, is not justice. The guy killed her and tried to cover it up. He says he suffocated her with a bag over her head to "put her pout of her misery". What a joke. How about we put him out of his mercy an enact the death penalty.
