Forum rules require me to use the actual headline from today’s local paper. If I was writing the headline it might be, “Why So Many People Hate Lawyers.”
On Aug. 24, 2016, Amos found York near her mother’s house, chased her in his car, ramming it repeatedly and forcing her to crash into a tree. He then shot her three times as she tried to run and then kicked her in the face and stomped on her head before fleeing.
This was two days after he had threatened to kill her.
Defense attorney Anthony Churchward argued no one could prove Amos intended to kill Rosita York.
Although Willie Amos is only 40 years old, he had already served 20 years in prison for another attempted murder where he shot someone nine times. Obviously 20 years was not enough and I hope that mistake will not be repeated.
