delawareonline | The News Journal | Judge in starvation trial dismisses murder charge against Elkton man
Circuit Court Judge Thomas Ross today tossed out the second-degree murder charge against John J. Dougherty, the Elkton, Md., man charged in the starvation death of his common-law wife.
Kilrain, 46, was severely impaired before her death because a blood vessel burst in her brain in 1999 and she needed constant supervision, according to testimony. Kilrain died Feb 25, 2005.
If the defense really needs the help, the Terri Schiavo case showed that it's quite alright to starve the impaired to death. Heck, it's even a blessing, far better than letting them live!

Yeah, I think I pulled a sarcasm muscle on that one...
