Castration, then life without possibility of parole would not be enough for a scum bag like him.

Execution needs to be swift so the victim and victim's family get their justice. No reason to prolong things with endless appeals. If DNA proves you guilty, you ARE guilty. End of story! Keeping these garbage around waste our precious resources.

2nd degree murder? Isn't that the same charge that the reckless Foothill road racer Cody Hall was convicted of? As bad and reckless and irresponsible as Cody Hall's actions were, at least he didn't specifically target the woman victim for murder. Seems that plunging a knife 44 times into a specific murder target deserves a higher murder charge.

Steve Carlson is a white trash piece of SH#%^T - 2 decades this monster was able to live free , while Tina Fey's family had no closure - I wish we lived in a society that ruled an EYE for an EYE !!!!!What is this world coming too ? Very sad !!!!

If you have a chance, and have any interest in this, I suggest you read Murder in Pleasanton, a great book written by a former Pleasanton resident. It goes into great depth about this event, more information than you could ever imagine.

And to Scarlet, it's Tina "Feliz", Not Tina "Fey". I think Tina Fey might be surprised to find out that she used to live in Pleasanton.

Tina Faelz is her correct name according to the author, Joshua Suchon, who wrote the book, "Murder In Pleasanton."

Yes, correct, Faelz. I'd love to blame auto-correct, but it was my mistake. As George W Bush would say, I misremembered.
