'Clay, You Can Go To Hell,' Says Sister Of Murder Victim Chanin Starbuck

In the sentencing of Clay Starbuck Thursday several people spoke on behalf of Chanin & in defense of Clay. A jury found Clay Starbuck guilty on June 4th of premeditated murder and sexually violating the human remains of his ex wife Chanin back in December of 2011. Thursday's sentencing drew emotional statements from Chanin's family and Clay's family who stand behind him in his innocence.  

"Chanin's life mattered," Chanin's Mom, Melanie Bourcier, told the court . "You robbed her kids of their mother. You ripped the heart out of my family."

Marshall Starbuck told the court "the events that took place were very sad and tragic, but my dad would never do this."

In court, Clay seemed visibly agitated as prosecutors asked the judge to impose a no contact order between Clay and his adult children. It now stands that Clay cannot see his three minor children until he is cleared by the Department of Corrections following a mental evaluation or when the minor children become adults.
