An all-too-familiar tragedy.

The details of this kind of slaying are by now depressingly familiar--but nonetheless shocking. This time the murder victim is 24-year-old Jamie Ray Tolbert. According to George County, Ala., law enforcement officials, Tolbert was abducted from a Biloxi, Miss., gay bar early New Year's Day, beaten, strangled, and then left for dead. Two men, 19-year-old Brent David Kabat and 22-year-old Jeremy Shawn Bentley, were arrested January 23 driving Tolbert's car in California. Police had tracked the men as they went on a cross-country spending spree using Tolbert's credit card. Later one suspect led deputies to Tolbert's decomposing body, which was found near Grand Bay, Ala. Both men face capital murder charges.
