A grizzly is a type of bear. The word you're looking for is "grisly". And it certainly is. All six of those people knew the shot that killed them was coming. Regardless of how one feels about the death penalty (I oppose it), it's impossible to imagine that they won't get it.

Fnarf beat me to it.

Unless the grisly story is being retold on camera by a grizzly, in which case, I'm interested again.

"armed themselves ... and drove 200 yards from their trailer to Wayne and Judy Anderson's small white house"

@1 - Except Washington will always have the Green River Killer defense ... "If he didn't get the death penalty, why should I?"

Musharraf blaming Al Qaeda or the Taliban for Bhutto's assassination is like someone blaming the dog for a stinky fart.

Uh, the Green River Killer didn't get the death penalty because he bargained out of it, by promising to tell where the bodies were. Next question.

Fnarf, I read the newspaper this morning, and it will seem that prosecutor Satterberg has a lot to think about in the coming days.
I can only hope the Serenity prayer will reach him.

Didn't pride used to be a sin?
