  1. Upgraded to manslaughter? Let him go with a pat on the back, did the work of the justice system but with the punishment fitting the crime…

    • upgraded ? havent read anything that ge succumbed to injuries….post made in early.hours. do share

    • It is sad when drugs bring people to places they would never be otherwise. I know 2 of these people involved and the victim.If people are present the police will charge everyone there, so don’t be so judgemental. If this is a junkie house then the victim might be a vicious person who hurts people also. Not that ANYONE deserves to be killed but when on drugs behaviors are known to get out of hand. OUR community has many people suffering from substance abuse and the impact on our community is volatile and safety is a serious issue when people abuse hard drugs. Sad all the way around because sober the 3 I know can be the nicest people. They ALL have family here and desrve some respect because they ALL have suffered due to people’s choices to use.

    • Lynn Leclair if you know the victim then one would assume you know what was done to him which no state of intoxication on any substance has an excuse for.
