Diego Pillco, the laborer who confessed to the 2006 killing of actress-director Adrienne Shelly, had one last day in court Thursday. And Shelly's husband, Andy Ostroy, made it count, according to The Times:
In his anger, Mr. Ostroy, a marketing executive, called Mr. Pillco an animal and a beast for, he said, taking the life of a “loving woman who, unlike you, had so much to give to society.”
He said he was “haunted by the image of you walking this earth, a free man 23 ½ years from now, as a man with much of his life still left to live.” (The 16 months that Mr. Pillco has spent in jail since his arrest is considered time he has already served.)
“I want you to suffer like she suffered,” he said, “to live a life of fear, the same fear she felt when she realized she was about to die.”
And there's plenty more where that came from. Pillco, 21, resumes his 25-year sentence (minus 16 months for time served) for manslaughter today.
