Justice is served...

For those of you that didn't know, my cousin was murdered in Canada two years ago. The case just went to court about 2 months ago and the men that were accused chose to have a judge decide their fate. She asked for 3 weeks to make her announcement, and on Friday they were found GUILTY.

I am obviously thrilled and I know justice has been served but it will never bring my cousin back. I really pray that this brings my aunt and the girlfriend of my cousin from the time of the murder some peace.

You can read about it here... Guilty Verdict

The guy that actually killed my cousin has another court case coming up so hopefully he wont be out til hes 90. He was sentenced 25 years to life in prison, and he has already served two, but with this other case pending I don't think he will ever be out. We shall see...

Wow... it doesn't bring your cousin back, but it sure helps knowing he won't be able to do this to other people's families. I am so happy he was found guilty - and you're so right, Justice is Served!
