Roeder – First Degree Murder

After taking the stand at his own trial and admitting to killing George Tiller, the Judge has ruled the lower charges are no longer an option for the jury. First Degree Murder or bust.

Yesterday, Roeder had a chance of facing voluntary manslaughter charges that carried a 5 year sentence. That is no longer an option. Roeder admitted to planning the murder for nearly 10 years. I guess that no longer qualifies as a “heat of the moment” moment…
