Murderous Lesbian Chainsaw Update

Thursday, April 19, 2007

Now that is something you don't get to write very often. From the AP:

The [jury] convicted Daphne Wright, 43, of kidnapping and murdering Darlene VanderGiesen, 42, another deaf woman from Sioux Falls, in February 2006.

Prosecutors said Wright was jealous of the friendship VanderGiesen had with Wright's former lover and it turned to rage that drove Wright to kidnap VanderGiesen, kill her, burn the body and cut it apart with a chain saw.

In closing arguments Wednesday, Minnehaha County State's Attorney Dave Nelson told jurors the mutilation shows Wright had the depravity of mind required by law to make the murder worthy of capital punishment. . . .

Public Defender Jeff Larson argued that Wright burned and cut the body as an afterthought and it does not show a depraved mind. Parts of the body were found in a Minnesota ditch. . . .

"Do you really think the body was dismembered for some perverse pleasure, or because she couldn't figure out how to get a 200-pound body out of the basement? If it's the latter, by definition, it's not the act of a depraved mind," Larson said.

So no death penalty. I don't get it. Can I leave a codicil to my will stating that if I'm murdered and dismembered and left in trunk wrapped in plastic that I want the perp killed? Thank you very much.
