LUCASVILLE, Ohio — One family wept loudly and another family cheered Wednesday as a man was executed for killing a 6-month-old as he raped her.

Steve Smith, 46, was executed by lethal injection at the state prison in Lucasville in southern Ohio for the 1998 killing of his live-in girlfriend's daughter, Autumn Carter, in Mansfield.

Smith had recently tried to get his sentence reduced to life in prison, arguing that he was too drunk to realize that his assault was killing Autumn and that he didn't mean to hurt her. The Ohio Parole Board and Gov. John Kasich turned him down unanimously.

"I'm glad he's dead, and I hope he burns in hell," Frye said surrounded by her family after the execution.

You and me both.

His death was far too painless and far too long delayed.

He was executed by lethal injection? I'm sure it was far less painful and terrifying that the ordeal he put that poor infant through!

A monster like this deserves something far more severe than lethal injection - they released him from all pain in his life! He should have been daubed with honey and staked out on an anthill or had a molten hunk of steel pressed onto his scrotum.

I wonder what they're saying about this on the Leftist forums - probably want to give him an award.

The constitution forbids cruel and unusual punishment, but I’d be willing to waive it in this case.

at least this is a case where no one can argue they executed the wrong person.

Death row is the most secure unit in the entire joint. For time on the yard, he was protected by the fact, that he was most likely a "walk alone" inmate, and never had any contact with other inmates.

Too bad we don’t have impalement through the anus like what the French did to Suleiman al-Halabi for killing General Jean Baptiste Kleber in 1800. They tied him to a tree, burnt his arm to the bone, then impaled him through the anus and out through the shoulder and left him to slowly die where they then beheaded him and sent his skull to the Museum of Man in Paris with “criminal” written above it. If they did that here just once, it would end child rape overnight. But noooo, we have to put the killers to sleep like *yawn* little lambs. “Oh he took a deep breath! Oh the horror!”

"The constitution forbids cruel and unusual punishment, but I’d be willing to waive it in this case."

Out of respect for killers like this, I think "cruel and unusual" should be given flexible definitions to accomodate the means by which they killed. For example, in this dirtbag's case, raping a 6 month old to death made perfect sense; consequently, his being raped to death by a herd of wild horses should be deemed by the courts to be perfectly reasonable.

Post the horror that was mangling of the English Lanuage and the meaning of words by der Slickmyster via affair la Monica, one could ask;

That depends what your definition of cruel and unusual punishment is.

What the heck he set the president?

That practice was a favorite of, not surprisingly, Vlad the Impaler.

Done “properly”, the impaled can live for several days before finally dying.
