  1. My condolences to Dr. Ma’s family and friends. What an absolutely in humane and horrific crime.

    My question is why is the killer potentially only facing 12 years jail time???? Where is the justice???

    1. Given the sentences handed out in other cases for less morally offensive crimes, 12 is low. I believe (not having seen the documents in person) that the acquittal on the murder charge is what brought the potential penalty down. Manslaughter, which is a homicide resulting from a “sudden quarrel” or committed “in the heat of passion,” a defendant faces a maximum of 11 years in prison. Here, the use of the weapon adds an “enhancement” to a potential 12 year sentence.
