WM3 judge: They're still murderers

Posted By on Tue, Aug 23, 2011 at 8:59 AM

Sen. David Burnett of Jonesboro, who was judge in the West Memphis Three case, tells the Commercial-Appeal that he's unhappy with the plea bargain, but said the defendants "walked out of that courtroom as murderers."

Said Burnett:

"I would have preferred to have a cleaner ending to the case," he said. "Whether either viewpoint is satisfied by the outcome, I doubt it."
