Michigan Killer Says He Is ‘By No Means Sorry,’ But Rather ‘It Felt Great’ to Murder

PRESQUE ISLE COUNTY, Mich. — A convicted killer in Michigan expressed no remorse on Monday as he appeared in court for sentencing, but rather said that it “felt great” to kill someone.

“I am by no means sorry about what I did,” Brenton Walker, 55, declared before those gathered at the Presque Isle County Courthouse. “Now when I was given the opportunity to follow through that I’ve known for a long time that I’m capable of doing, it felt great. I feel vindicated because of it; I’ve never felt better in my life.”

According to reports, Walker met Heather Young, 42, at a bar last July, and the two went back to his house. When Young began talking about her boyfriend, he shot her in the leg with a rifle.

Walker states that he sought to help her bandage the wound, but Young sprayed him with mace and tried to run away. Walker then shot Young again, and then took a chainsaw to her dead body and burned the remains.

“The fact that this happened to this particular individual is because number one she reminded me a lot of my ex–wife and others I’ve been with. A liar, a dope fiend, and a whore, so yes I’m not sorry, I have nothing to be sorry about,” he told the courtroom this week.

Young’s family members were present to hear Walker’s words, and were disgusted both at his lack of remorse and his characterization of Young.

“He stands there with a smirk on his face,” Young’s father, David Bentler, said, according to WTOL-TV. “That is not right, and they need to get ready to bring the death penalty back in Michigan. I’m going to try somewhere and somehow to get someone to help me for my daughter and other victims that are out there. … This has to stop.”

“I’m on medication for dealing with losing my daughter to your cold–hearted senseless murderous act,” also lamented the woman’s mother, Gail Walker. “I have nightmares about her dying—how she suffered until her death and how you killed her and what she probably felt in all that was coming right up to the moment of her death.”

Walker was sentenced to 45 to 70 years behind bars after accepting a plea agreement.

Jesus explained in Mark 7: 20-23 that man’s sins begin in the heart and proceed outward to their words and actions.

“That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man,” the Scripture reads. “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride [and] foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”

            well, you must be the rightfielder then because I am the shortstop. *GRIN*
            Thanks for your reply.
            I would like you to tell me something, if you don’t mind.
            Are you a supporter of equal rights for all men?
            Just curious.
            God bless!

          Not to my knowledge, no.

          • Sharon_at_home

            Oh good. there is news that Parodyx and Colin and the lasthonestlawyer have been banned. Maybe it isn’t true after all. I hope not. We won’t have any discussions other than telling each other that they are the ones who corrupted God’s Word. I was actually going to leave when I thought you were all banned. Now I don’t have to.
            I’m glad you are still around.
            God bless and take care of you and your family.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            That’s very kind of you, and I wish the best to you and your family also.

            Parodyx and Colin I think were banned. I don’t know about thelasthonestlawyer, but I hope he wasn’t. He was always quite gentlemanly, reasonable, and intelligent.

          • Me & thelasthonestlawyer were going back & forth on a discussion not long ago so if he’s banned, it’s been recently.

          • Sharon_at_home

            Thank you. You are a friend AC. of course I wish you and yours all the best. silly boy lol! I was very concerned that they banned you with the other 2. I’m still thinking about them and hoping I can bump into them again.
            I agree. It’s still discrimination for them to ban them for not being Christian. Can they get away with it AC? or will Colin and Parodyx even want to come back. Something should be done so they can’t ban someone for simply not agreeing with Christians. That’s ridiculous for a public comment board. Otherwise the Christian New site that is associated with this comment board might want to change who does their comment board because of the discrimination. The moderator had no right unless they were extremely violent sounding, or cursing, or calling other Posters demeaning things. Since the Christians on the site are allowed to do all of those it can’t be legal can it?
            Point I’m making is to the moderator. I am hoping they will realize the precarious position they are in because of the law against discrimination.
            I don’t believe the site asked for them to do that. It’s always been an open board hasn’t it?
            Give me your level headed advice AC: what do you think?

    A demon-possessed. USA should make laws according to Christianity and not according to people’s feelings. Too many demon-possessed like this nowadays.

  • bowie1

    He barely knows the woman and murders her when she talks about her boyfriend. He should have simply walked away from her if he had a problem with that. However it’s too late now and he will have to stay a long time in prison!

    • NCOriolesFan

      He should walk away from her in HIS house. The woman should have stayed home. He would be free and she alive.

      • Chris

        Yes it’s called tolerance. You should learn it sometime. Or he could have ordered her out of his house. Both would have resulted in the guy being still free and the woman being alive.

  • Victoria Martin

    The man has no conscience. He said he always knew he could do something like that. If it hadn’t been this woman, it would have been someone else. He most likely would become a serial killer if he hadn’t been caught the first time. I’m pretty sure he is a psychopath. Extremely dangerous guy. He should have gotten life or death penalty. If he isn’t locked up in solitary, I bet he’ll kill in prison. Watch out.

    • I don’t think he’ll be a match for anyone on the inside. He’s an old man & he doesn’t have any weapons – other than a shank. Only person he would threaten would be another person who was old & they’ve probably be inside for some time. Just my thoughts.

  • Edward Borges-Silva

    I guess I don’t understand why she went to his home when she had a boyfriend, though that in no way makes any case for the incredibly sick and vicious act he committed.

  • PilgrimGirl

    A man doing that which came naturally. It’s a frightening sight.

  • 45-70 years in prison, paid for by innocent taxpayers, including the victim’s family.

    America’s prison system with all its inherent problems wouldn’t be necessary had the late 18th-century founders not rejected Yahweh as sovereign and thus His law as supreme.

    Under the Bible’s juridical system prisons are superfluous. Convicted capital criminals are put to death expeditiously, per Ecclesiastes 8:11. Non-capital criminal are required to pay two to five times restitution (depending upon the nature of the crime) to their VICTIMS, per Exodus 22:1ff, etc. If a thief is unable to pay the required restitution, he’s to be sold into indentured servitude until restitution has been paid, per Exodus 22:3. If he refuses to pay restitution, his contempt of court is a capital crime for which he’s to be put to death expeditiously, per Deuteronomy
    17:9-13.

    Perfect, just like King David said it was in Psalm 19:7-11. Under such a system, crime would be all but unheard of and tax-paid-for prisons would non-existent.

    One day extreme sorrow will indeed come should life end without repentance towards God and saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ of Calvary. “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God” Romans 14:12, Holy Bible…

    I will be in prayer for the victims family and the repentance of this deranged and cruel murderer.
