  1. It appears that the murders of the 2 women and 1 man who were staying with Mr. Ashton were drug-related, but it’s not clear why he killed Mr. Eitner. Whatever the case, he still murdered him. Mr. Ashton will be far better off in prison the rest of his life than out on the streets, and so will society.
