“This was a situation where you have a brutal murder with a child there … stolen away (by Enix) from the family that loves her,” Sword said. “What is significant to me … is (he) takes this child and jeopardizes her life.”
Knox County Assistant Public Defender John Halstead said Enix would be 87 before he would be eligible for a parole hearing on the first-degree murder conviction in his ex-wife’s death.
“He’s already being punished,” Halstead said.
Sword said he was “mindful of that” but added he believes Enix is too dangerous to go free, the News-Sentinel reported.
