#2 A Prescott Valley Wendy’s employee came up to a customer and sucker-punched him after an argument a couple of weeks ago. On July 26, 35-year-old Antoine Kendrick was at the register taking the 67-year-old man’s order. However, police say the man then complained about his order, and that’s when things turned violent.

FACT: Capital punishment is a legal penalty in the U.S. state of Arizona. After the execution of Joseph Wood in 2014, executions were temporarily suspended but resumed in 2022 with the execution of convicted killer Clarence Dixon on May 11, 2022. The latest execution carried out was that of Frank Atwood on June 8, 2022, for the 1984 murder of Vicki Lynne Hoskinson.

So,Antoine Kendrick lawyer up!

#4 Sorry, #2, but no way will that guy be charged with Capital Murder. Maybe some degree of manslaughter.

#5 Kendrick had previously been charged with aggravated assault

I guess I retract my assertion that this should have been attempted murder.

But he was unarmed!

#6 Looked like Kendrick murdered the man for noticing the frosty flavors order was wrong.

#7  But he was unarmed!

Don’t be absurd, swksvolFF. Mr. Kendrick has two perfectly good arms, each with a fist like an anvil at the end of it.

#8 I believe swksvolFF was being sarcastic.

#10 he'll plead out to 'minor annoyance' and a sternly-worded letter - unsigned.

#11 Bang! Bang! Kendrick's anvil hand came down, on his skull.

There has been a swelling movement since The Knockout Game that, though the punch is brutal, the unhindered fall and headcrack onto the pavement is equally bad especially as a one-two whallop.

Moreso, that stance (square off vs. sucker punch) and physical conditioning (in-shape 'fighting age' male with boxing experience vs. senior) should qualify a physical strike as with a deadly weapon. Personally, I think he was dead with the punch, and everything else was effect, but even if the victim was pushed hard enough to fall and bang his head leading to death, then that too, considering the disparaging stance and physical attributes, would count as with a weapon.

Wonder who the murdered man was with, buying three frosties?

#12 A rational State would order a lobotomy. And spay him, so he can't produce more like himself. Because who knows, there may be some attracted to drooling idiots. Some people seem to like Bill Cosby.

#13 Just take him out back and shoot him. Don't make a spectacle.

#15 Running The Gauntlet seems an appropriate punishment. In leg irons and one mile seems about long enough, oh, and Little League aluminum baseball bats because "they aren't weapons!"

#17 AZ has a felony murder rule.

I don't think they will pursue that, however.

Also, I think the felony murder rule is an easily overused tactic and it should be strictly constrained.
