In Oklahoma, a decorated D-Day paratrooper was murdered, and his 85 year-old wife murdered after being sexually assualted:
An Oklahoma man suspected in a brutal home invasion -- already facing a murder charge for allegedly killing an elderly woman -- could face additional charges after the death last week of her husband, a D-Day veteran.Yet some would perversely suggest that justice requires that such an offender NOT be executed.
Bob Strait, a 90-year-old Tulsa resident, died on Friday, and a medical examiner is determining his cause of death, News On 6 reports.
He was injured March 13 when, police say, Tyrone Woodfork, 20, entered the house and attacked, allegedly beating and sexually assaulted Strait's 85-year-old wife, Nancy Strait, who died two days later. The couple had been married for 65 years.
Woodfork was arrested a day after the incident when he was spotted driving around in Strait’s vehicle, a Tulsa Police Department spokesman told FoxNews.com.
Bob Strait was a World War II paratrooper who took part in the D-Day invasion as part of the 101st Airborne Division, where he was awarded a Bronze Star, News On 6 reports.
Consider the difference between Bob Strait, who, when he was about 22 years old, earned a Bronze Star for parachuting into Nazi-occupied France in a bloody invasion, and Tyrone Woodfork, who, if convicted, has earned his fame at age 20 by sexual assault, murder, and robbery.
