A California man said this week he had no apologies and no remorse for murdering his cellmate — who was an accused child molester.
Gary Dale Poole, 67, was sentenced on Tuesday to 75 years to life in prison for the April 2014 murder of Michael Stauff, 62, according to The Fresno Bee. Stauff was awaiting trial on child sex abuse charges at the time of his death, the Associated Press reported.
“Mercy was mixed with justice. He met his maker,” Poole said during the sentencing, calling the killing a public service.
His admission was surprising because he had denied his role in Stauff’s death at the Fresno County jail throughout his trial in March. He claimed that Stauff had commited suicide with torn bed sheets wrapped around his neck. The jury didn’t buy it — finding Poole guilty in less than an hour, the Fresno Bee reported.

An 18-year-old Marine has been charged with murder after police found the body of his missing grandmother.
Isaiah Kahleal Evans Caesar was charged on Saturday, nearly a month after he went AWOL from his post in Fort Benning in Georgia, ABC11 in Durham reported.

Willie Patterson, Evans’ neighbor of around 20 years, told ABC11 that Evans had even asked him to join her and Caesar on a drive to Camp Lejeune, a nearby military base, where she reportedly planned to talk to Caesar about resuming his military career. Warning bells went
