@watergirl you would think he would have some kind of feelings about it. But with him beating his mother all these years it appears he has detached himself emotionally from her. Sad.....

Wonder if it has hit him yet, what he did. It would take a pretty hard core flipped out person to do that. Glad he is locked up.
