‘Shoe Thrower’ Facing Possible Death Penalty
Remember that guy in ‘Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery’ whose weapon was of the shoe variety?
Well it turns out he’s a bad guy… a really bad guy in real life!!!
Joe Son who was serving a life sentence in California’s Wasco State Prison for torturing a woman, allegedly killed his 50-year-old cellmate in 2011.
The victim, Thomas Graham, was serving a 2-year sentence for failing to register as a sex offender. He had previously been convicted for committing lewd and lascivious acts on a child under the age of 14.
Son, a former MMA fighter, killed Graham with a combination of kicks and punches.
According to TMZ, the brutality of the murder will be a factor when prosecutors decide if they should pursue the death penalty.
