Murder Sentence Angers Family

The father of the young woman murdered two years ago said the sentence his daughter’s killer received is wrong. Jim Comack said he is angry Joe Herrera will be eligible for parole after serving 22 years for murdering his daughter. Stefanie Comack was killed by Herrera Christmas Day, 2011 when a gun he pressed against her forehead discharged. He was convicted of second-degree murder following a four-day trial in June. The sentence for second-degree murder in Idaho ranges from 10 years to life imprisonment. Judge Fred Gibler sentenced Herrera to life in prison with a mandatory minimum sentence of 22 years/Dan Hammes, St. Maries Gazette Record. More here.

Question: Would a minimum 22-year sentence be enough prison time for someone who murdered a loved one of yours?
