Man Gets Death For Raping & Killing SC Student

A Tennessee man has been sentenced to death for raping and strangling a South Carolina college student with her own bikini top.

The sentence came hours after Jerry Buck Inman asked to be put to death for the crime because he was too violent to be rehabilitated in prison.

Inman showed no reaction Wednesday when a judge sentenced him to
death for killing 20-year-old Tiffany Marie Souers. Inman then apologized to the family of the slain woman.

Inman's attorneys had argued their client should receive life in prison because he suffers from psychological problems and feels extreme guilt for his crimes.

Inman pleaded guilty last year to raping and strangling the engineering student from Ladue, Mo., in her off-campus apartment in May 2006.

    Good riddance. They should enforce the death penalty more often.

    Should this sub-human piece of vermin get the death penalty ? Obviously. BUT, how long will it be before the sentence is actually carried out ? If previous patterns hold true, probably at least 15 years. That's a long time for him to sponge off of us taxpayers. As for the method of execution, real justice would be letting him die in the exact same manner as his victim INCLUDE the rape. Surely the prison system can provide volunteers to help that part along ?

    Good riddance to the animal, may his wish be granted with swiftness! The poor girls family should be allowed to throw the switch on old sparky!
