My uncle was a great guy and is greatly missed by all of us. My dad took his death hard, made him have a lot of regrets about not being there more. He gave me a life time of memories when I was a kid and it breaks my heart that my kids won't have a chance to meet him.

I've never corrected grammar for those who post comments...even yours, Ed Sneade. Why would I?

Did you just throw up your hands on the grammar correction Ron? Did anyone of the people posting here notice how completely uneducated they appear? Spare our city this embarrassment and delete these posts Ron.

Haha good man more like good lame the only reason that man turned himself in isbecause retaliation for ronald would have been extremely hostile and brutal fear is what caused this man to shoot my Dad and fear is what got him 40 to life just because you own a gun doesn't mean go shoot somebody so go fuck yourself and have a good day

I think the whole situation is very sad. I was wondering if drugs were ever found at the apartment. I felt sorry for Ron , he was just a class act man to come to the defense of a woman even knowing there was a crazy man with a gun. Everyone seemed like roaches they all disappeared after the lights came on. Where is David and monica???? Still hiding and running???

Really, Gerard. I was the only one he was fighting with, or who was even in the apartment. I had no weapon, either. I'm 5'5" tall and weighted less than 200 lbs. I'm also a 46 (at the time) year old woman. I'm a middle-aged accountant. If it was self-defense I must be a mutant ninja-turtle by night /middle aged accountant by day type character. Another words - You live in an alternate reality if you believe self-defense is even a remotely possible defense. Get real.
