EL DORADO - After Bill Moore calmly pleaded guilty Tuesday to killing an Andover woman five years ago, Doug Mould talked of the wife and mother he and his three children lost.

“There is no closure in these sorts of situations,” Mould said of the loss of his wife, Carol, in a violent attack in their home...


Moore, 56, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of second-degree murder.

Had he gone to trial, Moore faced first-degree murder and life in prison.

...Moore could face nearly 13 years when he returned for sentencing May 10.

Mould, 46, was found dead in her burning house, just off K-254, on Sept. 22, 2004...

Then last May 20, paramedics received a call that Moore was suicidal at his home. “I killed Carol Mould,” Moore told paramedic Dom Domebo...

During his confession, Moore said that he knew Mould because their sons served together in Boy Scouts. Moore said he went to her house hoping to have sex with her.

Under the plea agreement, Moore will not be able to appeal his sentence...
.
Butler County Attorney Jan Satterfield’s decision to offer Moore the plea...
.
So what will Butler County Attorney Jan Satterfield decide what to do about the disappearance of Adam Herrman? It is pretty clear that Valerie Herrman killed him, and Doug Herrman has kept his yap shut all these years.
.
If Carol Mould's murderer can walk in 13 years, will Satterfield even bother to charge the Herrmans? Could it be she's scared to proceed? Valerie Herrmans own family is willing to testify against her. What's stopping the filing of charges?
.
Maybe we need to just wait until Satterfield can get voted out and replaced by someone who knows the job. My own opinion.

Janet,
I am sorry you feel that way. I am as dissatisfied as you are with the number of years Bill Moore is getting. I would be equally as dissatisfied, if Bill Moore walked out of the court room a free man. My job is to weigh evidence, calculate risks, consult with family members and law enforcement and make tough decisions even if they are not popular ones. Cases are not as easy as they appear at a glance and they take on a life of their own in the court room. I make decisions based on my twenty years of prosecution experience and a record of getting the job done. I have tried close to one hundred jury cases with almost as many appeals including homicide cases that have been successfully prosecuted and survived appeals. In the midst of two murder trials this year, I have actively worked the Herrman case (including close to 20 depositions) and care deeply about that case. However, it is a very complicated legal case and must be handled carefully and thoughtfully. No, I am not scared to proceed. I am one of the few prosecutors in this state who has previously taken a ten year old, cold, bodiless homicide case to trial getting a conviction and affirmation by the Supreme Court. I will proceed with the Hermann case with the same vigor. I hope that I can gain your trust and support. Jan Satterfield

I'm not dissatisfied with it. I think he got too many. The lack of physical evidence against him makes the charges false. He is not guilty of this crime. What he is guiltly of is stress in his life causing him to say things and/or "admit" to things he did not do. If you're dissatisfied with the case, Jan, try finding REAL physical evidence placing Bill Moore at the scene of the crime. You won't because there is none. This case is as messed up as any case is in Butler County, tainted by the search for a person to blame not controlled by a search for true justice.
