KINGMAN - A jury deliberated just 45 minutes before finding Darrell Ketchner guilty of the first-degree murder of Ariel Allison, the first-degree attempted murder of Jennifer Allison, burglary and three counts of aggravated assault.

Ketchner stabbed Ariel Allison to death and shot Jennifer Allison in the head on July 4, 2009. Jennifer Allison survived, but the attack left her with memory loss and other physical disabilities.

Both sides in the case agreed that Ketchner killed Ariel Allison and attacked Jennifer Allison. What they didn't agree on was whether he made a plan before attacking the two women in their home.

Ketchner will return to the courtroom next week to determine if there are any aggravating factors in the case and start the penalty phase of the case, which determines whether he will get the death penalty or not.

In Texas he would have been put to death. If people kill someone other than an acciden,t kill them back. Less people in jail sucking up our tax dollars.

@ Arthur Arrey, you hit it right on the head. It's clear to me that people who commit these outrageous crimes know that if they're convicted of murder, they're going to get three hot meals a cot for the rest of their lives. It's time to bring back punishment that fits the crime. Criminals need to feel the same fear and horror which they put upon their victims. Not only that, but publisize the punishments so the nutjobs that are considering the crime think twice about it! An eye for an eye I say!

Another case that just goes to prove the need for public hanging! I can understand that sometimes under circumstancial evidence you should not jump the gun so to speak, but on cut and dry cases public hanging should be swift! As soon as the verdict is read they should lead them out to a courtyard and hanged by the neck without haste and without a hood! maybe then we can stop these crimes from happening!

Well, now that they finally agreed that Darrel is guilty, how long will it be before he takes the "Jared Loughner Defense" and plead insanity, due to his up bringing.

Let's stop playing around people. This is a case that justifies the death penalty.
