This should save 5 or 6 million in trial, appeal, retrial, etc. Also note the murder weapon.

Soltys, 28, had had difficulty in the jail since his arrest last summer. At one point, officials said they believed he had tried to kill himself by slashing his wrists, but later said it appeared he was simply trying to give himself a tattoo. Another time he leapt from a second floor balcony to the concrete below and broke his foot. Soltys had been under a suicide watch and had a camera in his cell, and jail officials checked on him regularly, one source said. However, the source said that jailers are prohibited from being overly intrusive and must turn out the cell lights to give an inmate the opportunity to sleep. Soltys apparently hanged himself in between checks and his body was discovered Wednesday morning. He spent most of his time alone in his cell, isolated from other inmates by the language barrier -- he spoke very poor English -- and by the nature his crimes. Soltys had been held there since his arrest Aug. 30, 10 days after he went berserk and slashed and stabbed to death his pregnant wife, his 3-year-old son, two 9-year-old cousins and his aunt and uncle. He later confessed to authorities that he had committed the killings, sources told The Bee, saying his wife had been disrespecful and eventually telling interrogators that his troubles with her went back years to life in Ukraine, where her family disapproved of him and where he had regularly beaten her.

That's too bad.....I want him to rot in jail and being somebody bitch for the rest of his life. Killing his own 3 years old son deserve no mercy.

Good, it will save a lot of taxpayer money. All criminals like that should be put in a room with a noose hung from the ceiling and a needle full of cyanide so they can end it if they want too. Sicko's like that guy don't deserve a trial.

Why isn't it against the law for wives to be disrespectful to their husbands? If it just saves one life! [}:D]
