--Cons:: This is a serious story, but there are not a lot of details on the murder. Specific quotes would have added to the story.

This is the sickest story that I have ever heard. I can not believe that anyone would ever consider killing family. This world is a crazy place.
Pros: Unlke the other family-related murder story, this story was very informative. The reporter gave information on all of the relevant issues of the story.
Challenge: Details were very important in this article. The reporter must have been challenged to keep all of the information straight, without any fact errors. Summarizing the information must have been difficult.
