I say let him die, what has the world come to???
Lanny Perry Barnes admitted running down two women and three children in a McDonald's parking lot in Covington 17 months ago, killing a two-year-old.
On Monday he was sentenced to life in prison.
The 47-year-old Barnes suffers from leukemia and is due soon for a bone marrow transplant.
Taxpayers will pay for the procedure.
Police said the Barnes' car struck the five, hit the restaurant, then backed up and hit the victims again. Witnesses said they saw Barnes laughing behind the wheel.
Avery Nicole King of North Carolina died of her injuries. Her mother, Anita King, and Covington residents Stephanie Casola and her two sons, Isaac and Jake, recovered from their injuries.
At the time of the incident, Barnes' mother said her son had suffered depression for years.
