Teen couple

On Friday, authorities arrested the man they believe is responsible for the shooting of a teen lesbian couple near Corpus Christi, Texas two years ago that left one of the girls dead and the other in serious condition.

NBC News reports:

StricklandDavid Malcolm Strickland, 27, was arrested Friday by U.S. Marshals and Texas Rangers in the San Antonio suburb of Helotes, local media reported. U.S. Marshals, Texas Rangers and the police officers from Portland, where the attack occurred, detained Strickland and his wife, Laura Kimberly, 23.

He is facing charges of capital murder, aggravated assault with a weapon and aggravated sexual assault in the June 23, 2012, attack on Mollie Olgin, 19, who died in the shooting in Portland on the Corpus Christi Bay. Olgin's girlfriend, Kristene Chapa, then 18, survived. His wife faces charges of tampering with evidence.

Wrote Chapa on Facebook:

  1. Hopefully, and I'm not counting on this, the state will wipe the smile of this murdering animal's face and promptly stick a needle in his arm. (I probably not call him an animal, it's an insult to animals but I couldn't think of a word that would pass the censor's program.)

  2. Stick a needle in his arm? I'd rather he be locked in an 8x12 cell for the rest of his life. He should have no contact with anyone except his guards. There should be no television, and he should only be allowed to read books by Tolstoy.

    here's hoping that over the next decade or two he spends some quality time on this stomach with a few tough ass gangbangers taking turns taping his ass

    Making him read Tolstoy would be cruel and unusual punishment and unconstitutional.
