A white supremacist couple in North Carolina have been sentenced to consecutive life sentences after killing a registered sex offender and his wife.
Jeremy Lee Moody and Christine Moody admitted to purposefully targeting and killing a couple in July of last year.
The couple admitted to killing Marvin Parker, 59, and his wife Gretchen Dawn Parker, 51, and said that they chose their victims because he was a registered sex offender.
They were unrepentant at the sentencing on Tuesday and even kissed after being sentenced to two consecutive life sentences each.
Initially, Jeremy and Christine Moody apologised to the judge and asked for a 30-year sentence so they could see their children and grow old together.
But after Union County Judge Lee Alford handed down the maximum punishment, they showed how they really felt.
‘See you perverts later,’ Jeremy Moody shouted at Charles Parker’s family as he walked out of court. ‘That’s what child molesters get.’
‘They got exactly what they deserve,’ Jeremy also told reporter.
‘Had to do it over again, I’d kill more.’
‘I think Jeremy and I would have done it again if given the opportunity,’ Christine Moody said to reporters.
‘I have no regrets. Killing that pedophile was the best day of my life.’
If authorities had not acted fast enough, they may have: Christine Moody said that they had another sex offender in mind as their third victim but were caught in connection to the Parker killings before they could strike again.
The Moodys plead guilty to murder, kidnapping, burglary and firearm possession.
Though they had personal connections to a local supremacist group, Crew 41, which the Southern Poverty Law Center notes has a history of targeting sex offenders, the Moodys claimed that the Parkers murder had nothing to do with the group.
