Heinous crime

Why is there a death penalty if its not applied to a case as heinous as this?

Obviously I do not know all of the circumstnces pertaining to the Defendant.

For example low IQ or mental retardation issues, but c'mon, raping, beating, choking, and murdering an innocent 2 year old baby?

By Jason Buch - Express-News

A Laredo judge has given a teenager four life sentences for raping and murdering a 2-year-old girl.

Jose Eduardo Arredondo, 18, was sentenced Tuesday in the 2009 killing of Katherine Cardenas. The details of the murder horrified residents in the border city.

“She was snatched from her home between 4 and 5 in the morning and she was taken to the northeast corner of the property behind a wooden shed, where ... she was brutally raped and beat and then strangled to the point of death,” said Webb County District Attorney Isidro “Chilo” Alaniz, who prosecuted the case.
