The family and friends of the criminals love to selectively quote passages from the Bible -- "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone" which refers to the death sentence for adultery. Today adultery is not a crime -- the police have more important matters to attend to, like armed robbery and kidnapping.
Rather the family should take heed in the following:
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."
"The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."
I truly believe that the scripture was fulfilled in the deaths of these two Evil doers, and let the family teach the survivors to follow a path of holiness and to use FRATERNAL CORRECTION to help others.
FYI, FRATERNAL CORRECTION was practiced by Christ himself:
Fraternal correction is the admonishing of one's neighbor by a private individual with the purpose of reforming him or, if possible, preventing his sinful indulgence. This is distinct from an official disciplining, whose mouthpiece is a judge or other like superior, whose object is the punishment of one found to be guilty, and whose motive is not so directly the individual advantage of the offender as the furtherance of the common good. In ethics, this is, upon occasion and with due regard to circumstances, an obligation. This is a conclusion not only deducible from the natural law binding us to love and to assist one another, but also explicitly contained in positive precept: "If thy brother shall offend against thee, go, and rebuke him between thee and him alone. If he shall hear thee, thou shalt gain thy brother" (Matthew 18:15). Given a sufficiently grave condition of spiritual distress calling for succour in this way, this commandment may exact fulfilment under pain of mortal sin.
