  1. Should have got premeditated 1st degree and sentenced to life. Someone gets life for selling dope or smoking it. But this man kills an innocent person and gets this. No wonder we have all the killings. They just get a slap on the hands. Asinine. My opinion the justice system has let Janet’s parents siblings nieces nephews aunts uncles and grandparents down. Yes she was someone’s daughter sister aunt granddaughter niece and just an all around great person.
