Quick and other family and friends read emotional

## ## Man sentenced to 30 years for killing ex

He was arrested on a manslaughter charge Dec. 5, 2016, a few days after shooting, and charged with killing McKnight at a busy intersection in Terrytown following a road rage incident.

He was later indicted on a second degree murder charge.

The mother of Joe McKnight’s son, Michelle Quick, yelled out that’s “less than he deserves.” And she cursed as she was escorted out of the courtroom. Quick and other family and friends read emotional, tear filled impact statements before the sentencing.

Joe Mcknight’s mother, Jennifer McKnight spoke last. She stood in front of the courtroom and immediately started crying. She did not read from a paper. She looked right at Gasser, almost the entire time. She said when she found out she prayed “Lord not my child.”

She also told Gasser: “You took that part of me. You put pain on me I am not able to endure. I have to forgive you to have some sort of peace to live my life.”

Quick also took the stand. She says McKnight and her 7 year old son Jayden called his Dad’s phone after learning of his death. He left a voicemail. He asked his mom if dad could hear it from heaven. He asked if he could watch his dad’s highlights on YouTube. When he went to watch a video, a clip of his dad’s body on the ground came up. She did ask the judge for the maximum sentence of 40 years.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard handed over the jerseys, which the team proudly wore during their 4 0 win against Fulham at Anfield, to army reserves Lance Corporal Jimmy Parsons and Private Jamie McLaughlin at Melwood.

Jimmy and Jamie both carried a large poppy onto the pitch at Anfield to mark the one minute silence during the remembrance weekend fixture.

All 22 shirts, which feature a printed poppy and players’ autographs, are now available to bid for on ebay and 100 per cent of all monies raised will go towards providing essential care and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.

Steven Gerrard said: “It was an honour for the team to wear the poppy proudly on our home shirts and donate them to the Royal British Legion to raise valuable funds.

“We’d like to thank those who serve in the armed forces for the amazing work they do. They’re are the real heroes, going out to serve our country and it doesn’t go unnoticed everyone is really appreciative of what they do.”

## ## Bill Martin, County Secretary from the Merseyside and West Lancashire Royal British Legion said: “This year is the fifth year in a row that Liverpool Football Club have supported us with the Poppy Appeal. Their backing is so important to us and enables us to raise funds which are vital to support the work that we deliver to serving members of the Armed Forces and ex personnel across the Merseyside region and beyond.

“Last year the shirts donated from the Remembrance Sunday fixture against Chelsea raised 21,000 for the Poppy Appeal. It would be absolutely fantastic if we can achieve this figure again or even better beat it.”

Lance Corporal Jimmy Parsons added: “It was brilliant to meet Steven and accept the poppy shirts on behalf of the Royal British Legion. I am a huge Liverpool fan so this whole experience has been fantastic.
