Here's the money quote from the family of the victim:

“(Roane County District Attorney) Russell Johnson and (Assistant District Attorney) Frank Harvey would have gone all the way for us if we had so wanted to. We as the family just want some closure at this point before our own short lives are over.”

There are the usual "Fry 'em!" comments from some less than thoughtful people, but there has been enough tragedy for Cotton Morgan's family. Having to wait a decade or more for closure would be more torture for a dubious satisfaction.

I applaud Russ Johnson and his office, and most of all, the family of Cotton Morgan. May our thoughts be with them.
