    Celine Cawley was one of the Bond girls that starred along side Roger Moore, today her husband was sentenced for her brutal killing. Finally today the criminal case which I have been talking about for some time came to an end. The man who killed his actress wife by smashing her head in with a brick three times was today sentenced to 6 years and 11 months....see full up dated details on my Hub "The Jury Is Out"...

      Not near long enough...for a senseless killing (bashing a womans brain in is an horrific act of unimaginable violence)...get a rope! This sentence is a slap in the face to anyone that was family or friend to this person: Celine Cawley...and does little to protect society...as I doubt...almost 7 years is enough of a punishment for this person to re-think...and rehabilitate himself to keep him from doing something like this again!

    I would have thought I brick would count as a weapon in this case. How would it not cause harm. I agree that is an extremely light sentence for a murder.

    the full details of the case are on my hub "The Jury is out"....but it does not make much sense that someone can use a brick and it is not called murder but manslaughter

    A brick used as a weapon to bludgeon to death a woman is not considered intent to cause harm? I know Texas has been accused of using the death penalty a little too much but this dude would certainly have received it here!

              Oh, I have been to Texas. Loved it. I even visited the National Barbed Wire Museum, which has a massive ball of barbed wire outside.

              I was the third visitor that year. In july. wink

              It has some rough places, but I never felt the need to kill anyone. Kansas City on the other hand......

              I have shown you my favorite French magazine I thought?

                  The lady in change said she had been "rushed off her feet," and tried to sell me a three years out of date Mars bar.

                  Never knew there was that many different types of barbed wire. Surreal. But great place. I sort of wish I had joined the National Barbed Wire Collectors Association while I was there. It was only $25 and you got a free belt buckle. lol

      Texas does not use the death penalty enough to suit any number of women SURVIVORS of just such viciousness!! Texas could fry them one a day, everyday -- and include child molesters in the tally -- and that would please at least 20,000 brutalized American and children. All 50 states need to be "dispatching as God's emails" ten times more than they do, and the death penalty should be mandatory in nationwide.

    I am often shocked by some of the things the courts do and senteces passed to criminals. I read one of a child pornographer who got probation because the judge thought his small stature (5'2") would make him a target in prison.
    He needs to be a target!

      manlypoetrymanposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I would really wish I could say this is "unbelievable'...as bizarre a ruling as it was...Why in the world would a judge care more the convicted criminal...than the abused child victim. This is a truly sick case demonstrating that...that judge...is no real judge...and should be judged unfit...to ever be a judge...again!

      Edmond, Oklahoma, last month sentenced one of their firefighters to ONE YEAR in county jail for child pornography involving a child under 10. The judge took into account his "honorable" career in protecting Edmond from arsonists.

    6 years only?? and he gets to sit in a jail where he can watch telly and eat good food??? seriously the western world needs to learn how to really punish hideous crimes like these..

    If this was Saudi Arabia or Nigeria where the Sharia Law rules, this man's only option is to choose which way to die.. either hang him, firing squad, or die exactly how he killed his victim.. you might as well give free candy and check him in the Mariott hotel as that's not paying for such a horrific crime like that...

      Linda Faye Knollposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      If we had similar laws here then perhaps those from The Middle East and Nigeria who come here to COMMITT their comes would stay home and there would be a few less rapes in America. Too bad those same countries do not deal as harshly for acts of terrorism, including abroad. Saudi Arabia also executes women for committing adultry, whether they did nor not, just based on the word of the husband who usually has several other wives. That country also sends its child molesters to America while employing them at ARAMCO in Houston since, unless they become serial killers (and many do) they won't be prosecuted too harshly. Some are. Most aren't.

    ...in the old days, people would find a tall tree and a rope for things like that.  String that bastard up and let 'em swing.

    Really, I don't know how people can get away with stuff like that.  It shocks me everytime I read about those types of things.

      The Panhandle. I can't remember the name of the town. That was a weird day. I saw the longest train I have ever seen in my life. It must have been four miles long.
