A judge Wednesday afternoon sentenced convicted murderer Demeko Duckworth to serve 108 years in prison for the July 2010 murders of his girlfriend Asia Wade and her cousin Clarence Goins.

Last month a Davidson County jury found Duckworth guilty in the first degree of the two murders, one count of attempted homicide and one count of employing a firearm during a felony.

At a sentencing hearing Wednesday, Judge Cheryl Blackburn sentenced Duckworth to a total of 108 years in prison. That sentence includes two life sentences of at least 51 years each, to be served consecutively; a 22-year sentence for the attempted homicide to be served concurrently to the life sentence; and a six-year sentence on the gun charge, to be served consecutively to the life sentence.

Asia Wade, a mother of six, was stabbed to death by Duckworth in her home in July 2010. After killing her, Duckworth took her car and drove to Goins' home, where he then shot and killed Goins and shot another man.

Duckworth also faces an additional charge for allegedly assaulting another inmate while in jail.

What group of morons write these "
penalty" laws? 108 years for 2 murders?
Now, he faces additional charge of attempted murder?
Why not execute him in the next 6 months and save the state a million dollars?
There's no chance for re-habilitation, so, what's the point?
