The reason I asked - besides not knowing the details of the case - is that it seems a bit contradictory to me that the reason people want him executed is that it costs too much to keep him in prison rather than executing him. However if he had been in prison to begin with - for whatever reason - Jessica would still be alive today. Seems like a small price to pay for a child's life.
