That is very tragic. I hope the guy who did this will get life without parole. It just seems strange how random it is. Hopefully facts come out about exactly why this happened. What was the attacker exactly up to and why? God bless the victim’s family.

Why waste tax payer money with a sentence of life without parole?
An eye for an eye.

I agree with Adam on this. The guy should get to spend the rest of his life pleasing his Prison husband.
