    This is a sad story. The co-defendant received life without parole. I think both cases should've received the DEATH SENTENCE, but it wasn't, so is this a case of racial partiality?

    mike- I disagree with you 100%. If you have taken someone elses life for any other reason other than self defense then I'm sorry, a slap on the wrist just don't get it.

    There are circumstances to every situation,and we a regular citizens do not know all of them.We get what the media wants us get.The lady served her time that the judge and jurors gave her.I to once killed a man and served my time and have not commited any other crimes since,and now own a productive small buisines.Am i different person now than iwas then?Yes I am.Pepole can and do change and in most cases we all need a second chance at something.All of you "religon" nuts need to read youre bible a little more and find the part that says we are not perfect and we all make mistakes.Its part of being human.Just remember there are 2 sides to every story and very seldom get to see the both of them.

    Incorrect observer, Life without parole means just that.... WITHOUT PAROLE!

    Another dual standard in NC. Why didn't she get the same sentence he did. She drove her boyfriend while he stabbed HER husband! I doubt he did it for fun! I bet she planned it and set her husband up! Historically females get less time for the same crime than men do! If you kill someone, other than in self defense, you should pay with YOUR life. Life in prison use to be 20 years, but I can't say for sure that is what it is now!

    YES, I VOTED FOR OUR PRESIDENT AND HE HAS HIS DEGREE..What do you dum as.. people on this computer have,,other than ignorancy..This is not about our great president,it's about a woman killed her husband in 1987..Even if she killed in 2009,it's not the President fault.

    Most people do not realize that in NC there is no such thing as 'Life Without Parole'. Although it's called that, the convict is still eligable for parole after serving a set number of years. Although the actual killer is still in prison, he will also have the opportunity to get out at some point. That's why murder should be an automatic death sentence.
