My parents were born 17 days and 15 miles apart. Dad dated a couple playboy bunnies in the 70's (sisters, actually) before meeting my mom in college and sticking with her for 44 years and counting. He came by today to help rip out a fence in 105 deg heat and throw water balloons at my kids. And brought us donuts from our hometown shop.
My issue with simply throwing away the key on these types of cases is that while you can't replace the life she took, and you can't wipe clean the damage caused to the victim's friends/family, all a long sentence does is ruin another life. If want to give her 50, you may as well push for death. It's effectively the same outcome. And the family won't find peace regardless of the outcome (4 years, 12 years, or life). It's a horrible situation that has no positive outcome, so we need to focus on what we can do to improve the situation for all parties and have a less negative end.
