Lexington Doctor Sentenced To Life

After hours of deliberating, a Fayette County jury determined Dr. Michael Flick should get life in prison.

Flick was convicted of first degree murder Tuesday night, making him eligible for the death penalty.

The jury spent most of the day Wednesday listening to testimony in the sentencing phase.

Flick killed Christine Wittich and shot his former business partner Dr. Randall Lambrith in 2005.

Formal sentencing will be in February.

    It seems to me that if someone is as suicidal as Flick claims to be, he wouldn't have gone out of his way to make sure that he didn't kill himself. If someone wants to die that bad and he was that emotionally disturbed, it seems to me that he would have just done it. I understand that he was a good guy up until that point, but every criminal has to start somewhere.

    mentally ill people being put in jail for life? this country is pathetic. no other country, esp first world countries, would ever do something so tragic. i feel like we're back in the dark ages.

    this could be a case of false identity and, perhaps, fembots. i think everybody agrees.

    So you are outraged by his crime of murder...but you want to hang him, which would be murder in and of itself? That makes sense. Let me guess - you attend church every Sunday (where you pay lip service to forgiveness and love), you are Republican, have a blue-collar job, an unstable relationship with your spouse, persistent financial problems, and smoke. You are all the same.

    What we wanted was justice which didn't happen. Why should Chrissy family be without a daughter and Flick have the chance to be out in less than 20 years. How fair is this for this family - this will never be over for them- they have lost their daughter. So put him in prison for the rest of his life. Alot of people suffer from depression and mental problems but they don't go out in kill someone. That is no excuse!!!! I can't believe people are making excuses for a murderer!!!

    He has been found gulity they should have toke hem out and hung that day that he was found gulity buy now we have to keep hem in prison on our tax dallers if we hung every body that has been found gulity of a crime and should shout them or hung them they would be less crime and I would like to see them hanging that way we could reuse the rope and not have to buy the bults to shut them and save the tax payer even mory money.

    You are all griping about him getting only life with parole but when the woman got 5 years for shaking a baby to death you thought it was "justice". What exactly do you people want. Its not like if he had gotten the death penalty they would have put him to death.

    .WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO EYE FOR AN EYE AND TOOTH FOR TOOTH. I THINK THAT IT IS A SHAME THAT OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM HAS COME TO THAT IT HAS TODAY. HE SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT AND BE HUNG ON A TREE SOMEWHERE. MAYBE SOME ONE IN PRISON WILL DO THAT FOR US. TO THAT A KILLER LIKE THAT HAS HAD MANY PEOPLE IN HIS OFFICE AND WHO KNOWS WHO HE MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT OF KILLING.

    The Defense Testimony made some of the jurors cry! It was definitely moving and sincere.
