Life Without Parole

That's the sentence David Ludwig received today.
David Ludwig, the Lititz teenager who shot and killed his young girlfriend's parents last November, pleaded guilty and was sentenced today to life in prison without parole.
According to this report, Borden met Ludwig at a homeschool support meeting. Her parents were unhappy with their relationship. The murder took place after Kara Borden's father confronted him one evening. Ludwig later told investigators it was his decision alone to kill her parents.
Judge David Ashworth, at the close of the proceeding, told Ludwig that his "selfish" acts that day had destroyed not only two lives, but Ludwig's own and those of the victims' families, "and nothing you can do or say will ever change that."
According to the Borden's attorney, Kara now lives in another state with her siblings.
"I think she's happy to get this behind her and recapture her teenage years," Beyer said.
I pray that this is possible.
