When this Judge delivered the death sentence for this murderer, the father of his victim wanted to get his own justice. Would you have done the same thing or WORSE if this happened to your child?
A convicted sex offender was sentenced to death Thursday for killing three women whose bodies were found wrapped in garbage bags in Ohio.
Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Nancy McDonnell accepted a jury’s recommendation that 38-year-old Michael Madison receive the death penalty. She could have instead chosen to sentence Madison to life in prison without parole.
McDonnell said the horrific nature of Madison’s crimes far outweighed evidence presented in efforts to spare him, including an abusive and chaotic childhood.
Van Terry, the father of Shirellda Terry, one of Madison’s three victims, leaped over a table to attack the defendant in court just minutes after the judge pronounced a death sentence.
Terry was giving testimony Thursday about the loss of his daughter when he turned, paused and lunged toward Madison.
Cuyahoga County courtroom deputies wrestled the upset father as Madison and others scrambled to get out of the way.
The proceeding continued once Terry was taken from the courtroom. Madison didn’t appear to be injured.
The outburst happened minutes after McDonnell sentenced Madison to death for the 2013 killings.
The same jury convicted Madison last month of multiple counts of aggravated murder and kidnapping.
