It takes a lot of courage to say the obvious.
"Guilty of first-degree murder with a sentence of life in prison without parole."
The decision of a Lehigh County jury on Tuesday summed up the feelings of many observers over the past 16 months.
The jury made their decision without having the benefit of knowing Anthony Heath's background.
He admitted to a history of alcohol and drugs. But things got worse.
In 2012, he was arrested for repeatedly biting his 1-year-old son.
But that offense was minor compared to Heath's actions on Jan. 31, 2014.
