Can you just clarify what you mean, are you intimating that this girl somehow deserved here fate because you choose to hold that idiotic and insulting belief?

Why only murder? The crimes committed include kidnapping and rape, too.
Is the one going state's witness hoping for a reduced sentence or something?

No matter what punishment is handed down it will be too lenient. They should spend the rest of their lives locked up in prison here or Romania.

Good to see this scumbag is going to trial for this murder, hopefully he never sees the light of day again.

Yes, but the question asked was

Of course it would be more newsworthy, it would be stupid to think otherwise and a bit worrying that a high ranking person would ask this, I hope they are just feigning igrorance to try and get a point across. Either way they look ignorant.

What Makes a Story Newsworthy?
Quote:
3. Proximity
Stories which happen near to us have more significance. The closer the story to home, the more newsworthy it is. For someone living in France, a major plane crash in the USA has a similar news value to a small plane crash near Paris.

Note that proximity doesn't have to mean geographical distance. Stories from countries with which we have a particular bond or similarity have the same effect. For example, Australians would be expected to relate more to a story from a distant Western nation than a story from a much closer Asian country.
