Jessica Lunsford Killer Sentenced to Die
August 24, 2007 2:33 PM EDT

INVERNESS, Fla. - A convicted sex offender was sentenced Friday to death for kidnapping 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford, ****** her and burying her alive in his yard.

John Evander Couey looked straight ahead as Circuit Judge Ric Howard told him he should be executed for the 2005 crimes that led to new laws in many states cracking down on convicted sex offenders.

Sheriff's deputies hustled the handcuffed inmate out of the crowded courtroom.

The girl's father, Mark Lunsford, teared up as he listened to the judge read a detailed history of the case for nearly an hour. He hugged relatives after the sentence was read.

Outside court, Lunsford had a message for Couey: "Skip all these appeals. Take your punishment."

The jury that convicted Couey in March recommended 10-2 that he die for his crimes, but the decision was left to Howard.

An attorney for Couey, 49, had argued that he couldn't legally be executed because he is mentally retarded, but Howard brushed aside that claim in a strongly worded ruling earlier this month. Mentally retarded people cannot be executed under a 2002 U.S. Supreme Court decision.

The jury convicted Couey of taking the girl in February 2005 from her bedroom to his nearby trailer, sparking a massive search. The third-grader's body was found about three weeks after she disappeared in a grave in Couey's yard, about 150 yards from her own home.

Couey, already a convicted sex offender when he committed the crime, was arrested in Georgia and confessed to the killing. That confession was thrown out as evidence because Couey did not have a lawyer present.

Despite the confession being tossed, Couey incriminated himself other times. Jail guards and investigators testified that he repeatedly admitted details of the slaying after his arrest, insisting that he hadn't meant to kill the third-grader but panicked during an intense, nationally publicized police search.

Prosecutors also had overwhelming physical evidence, including DNA from the girl's blood and Couey's semen on a mattress in his room as well as her fingerprints in a closet where investigators said she was hidden.

Couey has a criminal record that includes 24 burglary arrests, carrying a concealed weapon and indecent exposure. He was designated a sex offender for exposing himself to a 5-year-old girl in 1991.

So long you piece of shit.

Since this is Florida I'm confident this fucker's sentence will actually be carried out if he isn't killed in prison first.

I watched this on FNC, the judge read statutes covering his ass for almost 30 mins , the best part was the press converance after . For all he's been through, Mark Lunsford was great. when asked if he would be at Starke Prison when Couey is executed , he said " Yes, I even applied for the job, and if I get I'll miss the first time" Glad this sick fuck is going to die , time to start getting the rest of these sick fucks.

i love that Mark Lunsford said that, sometimes you see victim's families that forgive the person and don't watn them to die, and God bless them for that, but i would kill that mother fucker myself too.

if he was read his miranda rights the fact that he didnt' have a lawyer present doesn't mean shit, right?

why was this mother fucker roaming the streats with all those prior convictions? and i wonder what consitutes being mentally retarded and how this Couey character fits the description?

i'm sure it will be appealed as far as it can but i actually have faith that at least scalia, thomas, roberts, alito, and kennedy would uphold it.

That sick fuck tried to use the fact he was born with "floppy ears" and "sniffed glue" when he was 10, his mother was 16 when she had him and gave him up to her aunt, all this bullshit excuses to get out of the sentence. Fuck that sick bastard. He put that kid in a trash bag ALIVE and buried her in his yard with her favorite stuffed doll telling her he was bringing her home but didnt want people to see her after R***** her for 3 days in a closet. I cant wait for this asshole to die. I wish they put his ass in general population for 1 day by "mistake". just 1 day.

I'll bet he will be killed within a year, year in a half. Dahmer made it what 2 years. The "mistake" will happen and I hope this nut, dies a slow horrible death , waiting on a gurney like the fat dude in "The Shawshank Redemption"

That wont happen. They shoot them up with three drugs. What they basically do is dope them up with an OD to where they pass out (it will kill them over time if left alone) but once they are knocked out they will get around to pumping potassium into their blood system which will stop the heart.

So, after he gets the first round he will basically just fall alseep and never wake up again. He won't know what is happening to his body when he dies.

I used to work at the death chamber here in Arkansas. Unfortunately the guy who was supposed to be put to death while I was working there was given a stay and another appeal hearing...bleh


I work with a guy at the TV station that grew up in the Middle East because his father worked in oil industry. He's totally against the death penalty. He just said that the government shouldn't have the power to kill it's own citizens and that there is no point in killing someone that you already have in custody that have no power themselves. I can understand the whole thing about the government being able to kill people (at the will of a jury of "peers") but I have seen those fucking animals first hand and someone that was locked up had broken into a 70ish-yr-old woman's home, beat her, ***** her and then killed her. How could you sit there and think that justice for that woman can be served by allowing that piece of shit stay alive? He took her life and shouldn't be able to walk through his own.

I still believe in justified homicide without prosecution, but people going around ****** and murdering people just need to be put down like dogs.

This is one of those cases/crimes where I feel the punishment should reflect the crime. Nothing would be better for that father than burying that sick fuck alive himself.

I think the death penalty should be applied humanely and only when there is no question of guilt.
That being said, this asshole transcends any level of decency I would wish on a condemned inmate.
I hope someone gets the three vials mixed up and shoots the potassium in first.
Slowly, too. Tell him its going to happen beforehand, too.

This piece of shit doesn't deserve to be treated like a human.
I know it goes against civilized society, but what he did to a kid is the worst thing anyone can do.

Absofuckinglutely. If he had only buried someone alive, I probably wouldn't even support doing the same to him, but with all the other shit he did? And to a fucking little girl?

I'm just glad this wasn't in pansy ass California. I love my state, but some people deserve to die.

Well maybe those 2 people also knew that if he wasnt put on death row he would be in with teh general pop and wouldnt last a week anyways. Supposedly death row is isolation for 23 1/2 hrs a day. But then again they were probly just bleeding hearts with floppy ears too.

Well people like him, if he wasn't given death, wouldn't EVER be put into general population. They have a wing/barrack where faggots, kid touchers and people who owe gambling debts to be held called Protective Custody (PC) so they won't be killed in GP. So, he'd be in PC if he just got life in prison.

And there is no supposedly about death row. They are in isolated cells for 23 hours a day. They get an hour to go outside and stand in outdoor fenced cages for their exercise.

The father in this case has stood firm in the face of all the excuses this scumbags defense has put up.

They should bury this POS alive and the father should be the one holding the shovel

The only problem I have with your statement is the death penalty being applied humanely....did they think about r***ing and murdering their victims humanely? While we're supposed to be a civilized society there are times when exceptions to the rule must be - savages on death row deserve to suffer in death as much as their victims did.

Hopefully Couey somehow winds up in general population ... "clerical errors" happen all the time in prisons and he gets shanked. Funny thing about criminals...they don't like kid touchers or kid murderers.

I like the general population idea. Solves the problem of paying for all the appeals and housing for the next ten years. Just toss another life sentence on someone who already has a dozen of them just to clear up the paperwork, and forget about the whole thing.

I'm sure the guards have as much contempt for this scumbag as the inmates and somehow, his paperwork will be "misplaced" or there will be a "clerical error" moving him into general pop ... the sheriff will then issue a statement saying that there was a "clerical error" and every effort will be made to uncover from where the error came. He'll "apologize" to Couey's family, go back into his office and smoke a cigar in celebration with Mr. Lunsford. The media frenzy will die down and Couey will go down in the crime annuls as another kid toucher who got his comeuppance <sp?>

Or do I watch too many movies? lol

Was it a movie when Dahmer was bludgeoned to death with a pipe and everyone was happy after?
Did they really worry very much about the kid-fucking priest that got strangled in his cell fairly recently?

No emotion, no drama, simply, “Mr. Couey, due to your actions you have forfeited your rights and privileges as a human being. At this time you will now be removed from existence.” Period, done. Over.
