Matthew Cook Casey Sentenced to Life in Federal Prison
Back in December of 2006 Matthew Cook Casey kidnapped a five-year-old girl from her home in Williamson West Virginia, and raped her in his car. Earlier the same day he had kidnapped and raped a 55-year-old woman from the Wal-Mart in South Williamson, Kentucky. Luckily for the girl WV State Police and Kentucky State Police were on the lookout for him and spotted him in Williamson. They chased him and after crashing his car in South Williamson Kentucky the girl was recovered and Casey was arrested. At the time of the car chase police officers were not aware that there was a child in the car with him.
He received a life sentence from the court and according to the State Journal he told the court “I wish you could give me the death penalty”.
So do I…
Casey is already serving a life sentence in the rape of the 55-year-old but this is a Federal sentence since he crossed state lines during the chase.
The Charleston Daily Mail reports that his attorney claims he was under the influence of drugs when it happened.
