Parole board: Death for man who raped, murdered infant

The state parole board says a Mansfield man convicted in the brutal rape and murder of a baby girl nearly 15 years ago should be put to death next month for the crime.

Steven Smith is scheduled for execution on May 1 at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.

Parole board members were not swayed by legal counsel arguments that Smith meant only to rape six-month-old Autumn Breeze Carter, not kill the youngster while in a drunken stupor in the middle of a September night in 1998.

It can't happen quick enough. I hope it's a very painful death, just like what the baby must have felt.

I'd like to pose a serious question to the pro death penalty people.

How many Steve Smiths are you willing to execute if it means you execute an innocent man too? 10 to 1? 100 to 1?

This beast cannot be executed soon enough.

And let's get Danny Lee Hill done too.

None. But if it's a clear cut case like this, they should be put to death within a month. Forget the appeals and such, his only defense in this case was - "..meant only to RAPE six-month-old Autumn Breeze Carter, not kill the youngster." And he's still alive 15 years later! Autumn Breeze Carter had no chance in Life.

Cases like these are what the Death Penalty is for.
