GRAYSON --A West Virginia sex offender strangled a Carter County woman, raped and beat her 10-year-old daughter to death and then burned their mobile home, killing a 3-year-old child in the blaze, Kentucky State Police said yesterday.
The man charged is Robert L. Drown Jr., 27, of Kenova, West Virginia. He is in a West Virginia jail for failing to register as a sex offender. Kentucky is seeking extradition. Slain were Jennifer Ison, 31, and her daughters, Shannah, 10, and Marissa, 3.
There's got to be a special circle of hell for those who commit this sort of crime. My thoughts are with the victims and their family. (My thoughts on the person responsible for this are probably not printable.)
