This criminal raped and stabbed a woman who was 8 months pregnant - I don't think he suffered nearly enough. His family is cruel for bringing this suit - looking for money they don't deserve. If they win a dime, they should give it to his victim's family.

MURDER is the crime here, not the justified capital punishment sentence for first degree murder. Dennis McGuire should have requested a firing squad if he wanted to be assured of his instant deserved death.

I can not believe there is a lawyer that is low enough to advance this lawsuit. Is there no end to greed within the law community?

I couldn't add much to what 's been said - I think rape and murder is a cruel and unusual way to die! This character got his "just desserts"! No sympathy here for him!
