If they had the death penalty they can plea to life with no parole. Then you don't have to go through the expense of trials and appeals and victims having to testisfy etc.

I'm a big fan of the DP when it is applied only in extreme cases of absolute guilt.

This is EXACTLY the approach they took with the Green River Killer where without the DP threat they would have had zero leverage.

crazy, crazy stuff, mad man, hope he rots in hell. i thought this video was interesting, more than the news footage, because it gives you some sort of feel of what it was like in the area.
