"I'll be back..."

...well, no, not so much, thank God and the Newport News, Va. Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

Virginia executed Kent Jermaine Jackson last night for the murder of "Beulah Mae Kaiser, 79, a widow who lived across the hall from Jackson and his roommate, Joseph M. Dorsett, 29. Dorsett also participated in the slaying and was sentenced to 135 years.

Kaiser's body was discovered in her apartment two days later. Her walking cane was shoved down her throat, a jugular vein was cut, and her skull was fractured. She had been kicked, suffered several other stab wounds, and had been sexually assaulted."

Nice guy. But what did he say for himself before justice was delivered? "You all can't kill me. I am the king. Remember me like you remember Jesus. I'll be back."

"Family and friends remember Kaiser as a gentle, kind woman who was extremely generous, even to strangers. Kaiser attended church regularly and volunteered at the Peninsula Rescue Mission."

Requiescant in pace.
