Death row inmate gets life in College Station case

A man sentenced to death last month for the rape and murder of a College
Station woman has received a life sentence in the death of another woman
who suffered a similar fate.

Ynobe Katron Matthews, 25, was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday
for the May 1, 1999 rape and murder of Jamie Glenda Hart, 21, in College
Station. In June he received a death sentence for the killing of Carolyn
Diane Casey, also 21, in May last year.

DNA evidence obtained after Matthews' arrest in Casey's death linked him
to Hart's death, 14 months after Hart's nude body was found on a rural
road in Brazos County. Hart's car was found parked and running with the
lights on 9 miles from her body.

Matthews admitted to authorities in College Station and Brazos County
that he forced his way into Hart's car and raped her. But he said she
jumped from the car, and he didn't kill her.

An autopsy showed that Hart died from a fractured skull, a dislocated
neck and brain injuries.

Matthews and prosecutors had agreed to the life term prior to his guilty
plea and sentencing on Thursday.

Hart's mother, LaDonna Hart of Baytown, said she still struggles with her
daughter's death.

"I just went ahead and realized that I am never going to get over this,"
she said. "It's never going to end, like a nightmare you wake up to every
morning. But, I have to learn to live with it somehow."

It makes me think about the death penalty.
I still don't know if it's okay. I still don't know really how I would feel if I were that mother. But ya know, it makes me angry. It makes me think that there isn't any punishment that's good enough to make the pain go away. It makes me know that jamie's family and friends are always going to be shattered.
I dunno.
I couldn't remember her last name.. so I had to look it up. In the oddest way... she's really important to me.

I can't read debate anymore.
I just scroll through it and glance.
I can't take myself that seriously on things that far outside of myself lately.
Self centered? probably.
Unduly so? I dunno ::shrug::

Sooo.. yesterday... I post pics. Mostly just for me. Just looking at them again, thinking about them again. This is something I kind of torture myself over because I know in my heart of hearts that I am worthless and talentless.

I get "nice pics, penis obsession"
"Nice pics, penis obsession, pretty eyes"
"Pretty eyes"
(I don't mention alicia's high off my ass comment because that was funny, dammit)

Oh, and more cock comments in another thread.
Do I just attract penis comments or.... was that a special day?

And am I wrong for being dissapointed that my throwaway, badly focused, utterly uninteresting self pic of my very sleepy eyes got more commentary then the other pics I put up that I was kind of proud of?

And I don't have any sort of phallic obsession, Mr. "I have to mention my cock in every conversation."

Herbiscuits: (10:10 PM) heheh
Azmatiq: (10:10 PM) ... especially considering your... 'condition' :)
Herbiscuits: (10:11 PM) my condition?
Azmatiq: (10:11 PM) Uh-huh... you obviously had a nasty bump on the head... and started dating me. ;)
Azmatiq: (10:12 PM) We just have to figure out which one of those is the unfortunate thing that happened ;)

If you're wearing enough make up on your face that the flash makes it look like whiteface makeup.. while your overly tanned and overly corded, leathery neck glowers beneath like the sinewy beast of dormant skin cancer it is...

it's time to scrape it off, sugar.

I'm glad I don't spend all that money on all those products that will only dull and hide and cover my damned face.

Except when Kevin Aucoin does it. he's just incredible.
