Arts Seattle Psycho Gets Sentenced
Back in the issue of March 23, Stranger writer Thomas Francis wrote a great and highly disturbing story on Demar Rhome, the Seattle man convicted of first-degree murder after convincing a teenage girl to fatally stab another young woman (during a creepy sex scene, no less).
From beginning to end, the Rhome case was filled with freakish intrigue, from the purchase of the murder weapon at that kooky 99 Cent store next to the post office on Broadway to Demar Rhome’s stupid but entertaining decision to serve as his own lawyer. (For a full, disturbing portrait of the crime and trial, see Thomas’ original story.)
And for the conclusion, check out the Seattle Times, which has the story on Demar Rhome’s sentencing yesterday in King County Superior Court, where Rhome was ordered to spend the next 31 years in prison.
