Terrorist gets Life without parole

My family finally has the beginnings of closure on the terrorist attack and murder of my nephew - Pvt. William Andrew Long and the severe wounding of Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula in front of the Little Rock Arkansas Army recruiting Center in June 2009 a little over two years ago. Arkansas has the death penalty for murderers but a plea bargain was reached (with the consent of our family) for the murderer to plead guilty and get life without parole instead of the death penalty.

Thank you to all of those who have supported our family through this long process and for the kind wishes expressed over the past two years.

This chapter has begun to close - now the next chapter can begin. Grieving is not completely over yet. Only time can heal that wound.

We miss you Andy.
