The other day we wrote about Joseph Edward Duncan III, the child predator and confessed murderer who was on trial in Idaho for the 2005 kidnapping, torture and murder of a 9-year-old boy.
On Wednesday a federal jury sentenced Duncan to death in the case.
Duncan's victim in the case was Dylan Groene, a member of a family of five, four of whom Duncan killed. He shot Dylan in the stomach and the head as he held the boy and his sister captive in the deep woods after having killed their mother, her fiance and their older brother. He then burned the boy's body.
What was Duncan's reaction to the sentence? A smile.
