Michael Ledford, the man convicted for the brutal murder of Jennifer Ewing on the Silver Comet Trail has been sentenced to death. It took jurors approximately two and a half hours to reach their decision. It only took them 90 minutes to decide his guilt in the murder earlier this week.
According to Ledford’s defense attorney Tom West if Ewing hadn’t fought back when Ledford tried to rape her he wouldn’t have flown into a rage, beating and stomping her to death. What the hell kind of stupid logic is hat? Only a defense attorney could turn around what was a heinous crime and blame it on the victim. Ledford certainly didn’t show Jennifer Ewing any mercy when he killed her.
