When Will It End?

The families of the victims need closure:

Orleans Parish Criminal District Court Judge Frank Marullo has granted more time for Rogers LaCaze and Juan Smith,two convicted killers awaiting death by lethal injection for separate triple murders that both occurred in eastern New Orleans 13 years ago.

LaCaze was convicted in the shooting deaths of police officer Ronald Williams and restaurant workers Cuong Vu and Ha Vu at the Kim Anh restaurant. Within a matter of months in 1995, LaCaze and Frank went from prime suspects to convicted death row inmates.

Smith was convicted in the shooting deaths of Andre White and Tangie Thompson at their home on Morrison Avenue. Thompson's 3 -- year-old son was also found shot to death, face down beneath his mother's body.
