Parole board says Lorraine should be executed

COLUMBUS

The state parole board says a Trumbull County man on Death Row for the brutal murder of an elderly couple 25 years ago should be executed next month as scheduled.

The panel released its recommendation Wednesday morning after considering the clemency request from Charles Lorraine, who will face lethal injection on Jan. 18.

Gov. John Kasich will have final say in the matter.

Lorraine was sentenced to death in the knifing deaths of Raymond and Doris Montgomery, the latter of whom was confined to a bed at the time of the killing. Lorraine stabbed both multiple times before ransacking their Warren home and using the money he stole to buy drinks for friends at a bar.

Public defenders have argued that Lorraine displays evidence of a traumatic brain injury that has affected his thinking abilities and judgment. They also say his original legal counsel provided an inept defense that led to the death penalty over a lengthy prison sentence.

Obviously this guy is a monster, but I think death is an easier way out. Let him live out his days confined in a cage like an animal and suffer that way. Death is too good for someone who stabbed, multiple times, an elderly couple for some loose change.

"Lorraine displays evidence of a traumatic brain injury that has affected his thinking abilities and judgment."

The animal had no problems butchering the innocent victims, ransacking the house and to top it all off, buying drinks for his friends with the blood money. Traumatic brain injury, really?

"They also say his original legal counsel provided an inept defense that led to the death penalty over a lengthy prison sentence."

Once again, the filthy scummy defense lawyers that fight for these animals are just as bad as the monsters.

Why do we have to pay to keep the killers alive for 25 years? If convicted of this kind of crime, they should be gone within 1 year.

Cheapest way of killing these monsters? A single .380 to the head, problem solved.
