Quote of the Day

"It is, you may think, a very unattractive defense. He did not know she was dead until intercourse was concluded. Even though you may think his conduct is disgusting, he allowed his lust to get the better of him."London barrister Anthony Glass, defending his client Mark Dixie, 37, against murder charges in the stabbing death of 18-year-old Sally Anne Bowman. The defense's case is that Dixie did not murder Bowman; he just stumbled across her dying or possibly already dead body laying in a pool of blood in the middle of the road and "took advantage of the situation."

Lauredhel has more, including some commentary on the photos of Bowman accompanying the various articles about this horrendous situation.
