I feel more sorry for the wife & 4 children that lost a beloved father.
I agree Synthia - I doubt any of this would have happened had he not been siphoning money to the cult.
I object to this, if it's correctly told by the journalist. They are trying some kind of precedent that more shots mean deliberation. They don't. Many shots could just as well mean that the attacker was in a mad rage. Three shots shows intent then and there, but not deliberation.Prosecutors tried to portray the murder as an act Fowler deliberated. Adams County prosecutor Yvette Werner told the jurors the fact Fowler shot Ciancio three times proves he intended to kill the former employee.

So the number of shots was pivotal for the initial identification of the suspect, but not the degree of the crime.
You're very good at misinterpreting the evidence. You need to read the articles again. In the prosecutor's summation, the jury were shown photos of Tom Ciancio's face & head after he was shot. The first shot occurred with Rex standing in front of him and shot him point blank in the face.
The first bullet entered his face parallel to the left eyebrow. The doctor testifed the gun was 2 feet away from Ciancio's face when he was shot.
The 2nd bullet enter behind his left ear which means Rex had to move behind Ciancio and shoot him again. The 3rd bullet entered in the center of the back of the head.
The evidence was clear. It sounds like Fowler wanted to insure his victim was dead which is why he shot him 2 more times from behind. Perhaps, Ciancio showed signs of life after he was shot the first time. Only Fowler and, perhaps, his attorneys knows that.
