I sure hope that anyone found guilty of murdering someone and then setting a fire that could have hurt or killed others and destroyed lots of property gets the maximum sentence. I hate to say I have my mind made up but I suppose from what I have read I do. I just wish that people would have the sense to get out of these toxic relationships before bad things happen. A few months to a year later who the heck cares ... separate and move on with your life.
