Police found a copy of "Natural Born Killers" in Davis' house.
Most Missouri Supreme Court opinions
are snoozers, but the one issued Tuesday
on the Richard Davis
case has to be one of the most riveting -- and horrifying -- in recent memory.
Our state's high court is upholding the death sentence of Davis, a man from the Kansas City area who in 2006, along with girlfriend Dena Riley
, raped and tortured and suffocated Michelle Spicer
These were some truly sick individuals.
After setting up the camcorder, the couple penetrated the young woman in every possible orifice while beating her. She apprently died while Riley was sitting on her face.
Riley reportedly got upset about thsi. Davis, however, started playing computer games. He
then put her in a bleach bath to get rid of any DNA evidence. Hours
later, as the corpse was decomposing in the tub, he went to a cousin's graduation party, where a photo shows him
smiling and having a good time.
