Our expert says:
Obviously I have not met or examined the murderer. It seems typical of many sociopaths that they take no responsibility for their acts and either deny reality or blame others, or both. I gather a psychologist who examined him testified that he had an IQ of something like 74, which is LOW, so he is not very bright and could be rather child-like and scared to form relationships with real adult women ( but like much psych evidence, that may help[ us understand the picture more fully, but doesn't excuse what he did.. Explanations are not excuses, and vice versa ). The evidence apparently being offered in mitigation of sentence could also be considered to argue that he should receive a longer sentence, as it would suggest he was unlikely to reform or to be able to live a normal non-custodial life without being a risk to vulnerable others in the future.
