But while conceding that Davis is responsible for the boy's death, defense attorney Christopher Slusher said that Davis had no idea that Robel was hanging outside the vehicle, entangled in a seat belt, as Davis sped down Interstate 70.
The boy became entangled in a seat belt and Davis sped off, dragging him for several miles before witnesses stopped the car.
Davis could face the death penalty if he's convicted of first-degree murder.
Jackson County prosecutor Bob Beaird said the state would show that "the defendant intentionally and deliberately drug Jake Robel to death" to avoid being caught after stealing the vehicle.
Witnesses will testify that they saw Jake "hung up, being drug bouncing against the side of the car, bouncing against the side of the tire repeatedly," Beaird said.
But Slusher said that Davis did not know the boy was stuck in the seat belt.
"Kim Davis is responsible for the death of Jake Robel, and he'll have to carry that weight the rest of his life," Slusher said. "The question is, how is he responsible?"
How is he responsible" Jee-sus! I know it was his poor upbringing that "made" him steal the car. He had no mind of his own.
What difference does it make what the car-jacker's intentions were as regards to dragging the boy to his death? A death that happens while committing a felony is murder- pure and simple! The crime was premeditated anbd this is a possible outcome from a violent crime. Case closed!
But, nooOOOooo. We will feel sorry for the perpetrator (hey, the victim is already dead - nothing we can do about it now) and send himn on his way with a light sentence.
