The Pilgrim


A Canyon Country resident died in prison Sunday while serving a life sentence for the 2013 murders of his ill wife and bed-ridden sister.

  2. Look at all the money we saved… Yay

  3. Donovan Michele im so glad you guys dont live there anymore!!!!!!!

  4. Headline and story confusing. Headline says sister died in prison.

  5. Jessica says:

    You guys need spell check especially on your headlines. Put commas where they go. The sister did not die in prison.

    • SCVNews.com says:

      comma = “and” in headlines

      • Jessica Sreden says:

        That makes no sense and confuses people. I’m a teacher and never heard that a comma stand for and. Don’t use commas use an ampersand. It takes the same character space as a comma and makes more sense grammaticalymtomyour everyday readers

        • SCVNews.com says:

          True, AP style, and for that matter “newspaperese,” often conflicts with Oxford English grammar rules. But we generally at least try to follow AP style. (Chicago style is just too weird.) One word you’ll never see in a headline — well, in a headline written by anyone with a journalism degree — is “and.” You also use digits in headlines that you would never use in body copy. (And unlike other grammar rules, in AP style, the numbers 10 and higher are written as numerals in body copy.) This is not a good reference, but it is something — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headlinese

  6. Jeanne says:

    This man loved both his sister and his wife. All the neighbors talked about how much he cared for his wife and was gentle and loving with both his wife and his sister.

    His wife had dementia and was suffering from breast cancer and in pain if I remember. His sister was not just bedridden but in a semi coma too. He cared for both of them for years until his wife’s pain and advancing dementia was an issue.

    He knew he knew if he ended his wife’s pain he would spend his life in prison but chose her comfort over his. He was the only one to care for his sister who was not even aware of much around her. After killing his wife he went to nurisng home and ended his sisters life as well. Laid down the gun and waited for the police to come and arrest him. He gave up his life to end their pain. So sad.

    Many in SCV wanted him to have different charges not 1st degree murder. Another sad thing.

    I don’t agree with what he did but I understand it.
    I have watched a my husband die of cancer and father and mother die of lingering illnesses. Very hard on them. I am pro-life again I don’t agree with what he did but he is NOT like the killers who have hate in their heart.

    • Jessica Sreden says:

      Please be careful what you say Jeanne as you do not know the whole story. His sister has a daughter and son that took care of her and visited her everyday. Her family still mourns her death because of what her brother did. Do not say you can relate to what he did because you know nothing of the true story.
