The mother of Yosemite killer Cary Stayner pleaded for his life today, saying he isn´t a monster and his execution won´t bring back his victims.
Kay Stayner took the stand in the penalty phase of her son´s murder trial this afternoon. It´s the first time she or her husband, Delbert Stayner, have appeared in court during the trial.
Kay Stayner said she has a hard time believing that her “ideal” child would grow up to be a killer. But it´s something she´s grown to accept with the four murder convictions that could send her boy to death row.
