SUMTER, S.C. - Authorities say a 33-year-old man beat a woman to death with a hammer in a Sumter County home and hurt her 14-year-old daughter and a disabled woman in the home.
Investigators said one of the injured women managed to call 911 on Saturday morning, and deputies arrested Jason Compton as he stood outside smoking a cigarette.
Deputies say Compton beat the 44-year-old woman, then forced the woman's 14-year-old daughter to see what he had done. He continued beating the mother when the teen refused to have sex.

It had to have been an assault hammer.
And close those Home Depot loopholes.
Outsource sentencing to Oklahoma
Picture of the fiend.
Now seriously, shouldn’t he be hung by the neck until dead, without much further adieu?
At least, the state legislature should approve the use of the firing squad if other means of execution are held up in court.
Flay him with a pig whip, drop lemon honey on him, stake him to a sand pile with a red ant hive beneath it.
Certain people will run around waving their hands in the air about a barbarian I am.
He beats a woman to death in cold blood and then forces her daughter to look at what he did but I am the barbarian?
I think I am defending civilization.
Some people are just evil and I can’t explain it. God knows us all, I don’t pretend to.
I would second that though, there has to be consequences. That’s cold. Rope and tree.
If Hammers are outlawed only outlaws will have hammers.
“We need sensible hammer laws. “
Common sense hammer laws. Though, as usual, the problem with such laws is if hammers are outlawed, only outlaws will have hammers.
Of course, he wants sex with the girl AFTER doing that... totally normal. No special circumstances here. /sarc>
Well call me a Barbarian too!(I do have the blood of Attila in my family) I also think James needs to die, and not the new mamby pamby let the bastard go to sleep die, we need to bring back the Electric Chair and use it PROMPTLY! This life in prison crap with all the amenities is not a deterrent.

James? You mean Jason? Yes, Jason should die soon.
In some locales, he will get in more trouble for smoking a cigarette in front of the 14 year old.
At least more chance of a ‘clean’ conviction.
By the time the ‘ambulance chasing shysters’ get through with it the victim will get blamed because she left HER hammer where he could get hold of it.
Some ‘people’ just don’t deserve to leave the scene of their crime other than in a body bag.
This one fits that category.
I like the red ant idea also.... a swimming pool stocked with piranha would be a nice gesture.
SC is a death penalty state, and they’re not squeamish about it. Compton is going to end up on a gurney watching death drip into his veins.
I am not a particularly violent individual, but these guys need to go down. No endless round of appeals, no moral ambiguity, no weeping and wailing over how they came to be this way. No histrionics, no sermonizing. Just a bullet to the back of the head. If they have enough pocket change to pay for it, charge them.
Can’t touch this.
He should be a piñata until dead.
Pardon, yes I meant Jason. Thank you.
And the $^%#* National Hammer Association will pressure politicians to block anti-hammer laws. We have to defeat politicians who answer to the NHA.
Looks proud of himself. No question of guilt. Appeal should take 10 mins. Rope can be reused.
Would a ball peen hammer be considered an assault hammer?...just askin’.
Clearly the only recourse is that all hammers must be collected by the government. Heaven forbid someone gets their hands on an assault hammer
Dreadful. Nuke the perp from orbit.
That crusty snot in his nostril screams class.
We need a safety bracelet to disarm hammers
So, how many hours of a state mandated hammer safety class will we now be required to take, before we can apply for a hammer and carpentry tools license?
Right, no one needs an automatic hammer to hunt deer. Even you will have to admit that.
“Would a ball peen hammer be considered an assault hammer?...just askin.”
If you had your balls peened would you consider yourself assaulted?
I was speaking with all seriousness about the firing squad, in that, in Utah and Idaho, it is currently legal. It is very inexpensive, practical, and like some of the other means of execution mentioned, quite legal.
The idea is that, as insurance, that if there are significant legal challenges in court, the state can say, “Fine, we will use the firing squad, and thus make legal arguments moot.”
Justice will prevail much faster.
Whatever state executed Gary Gilmore used a set of matched 30-30 Winchester Model 94s. Imagine what they would go for on Gunbroker.
