Frederick Van Anderson Gets Life Without Parole, Dereves to Die

Too bad they didn’t give him the death penalty. Why let a scumbag like this plead out when you’ve got him dead to rights?

GREENVILLE, SC — A Greenville County man accused of killing his ex-wife’s boyfriend while their children cowered in a nearby bedroom has pleaded guilty to avoid a possible death sentence.

Multiple media outlets report that 39-year-old Frederick Van Anderson was sentenced to life in prison without parole Wednesday after pleading guilty to the 2008 murder of Steven Gray of Travelers Rest. His trial had been set for Jan. 3.

Police say Anderson broke into his ex-wife’s home and shot Gray at least twice with a shotgun.

Authorities say Anderson called for his ex-wife as she and the children hid in a nearby bedroom, then walked several blocks and fired at least 10 shots into his former mother-in-law’s home.

Four children were at the second home, but no one was hurt.

Nice guy, right? Any of you thug huggers feel like dropping by to tell me “there’s two sides to every story” about this guy, who was planning on killing his kids?

    Agreed. We should have prisoners learn a trade and work in prison, but instead of paying them the money should go to their victims. Now prisoners make small amounts of money. They shouldn’t.

    For you all that heard of or didn’t For this unjust, murder . I am the Mother of Steven R. Gray and have a lot to say after 6yers. Why would he not kill Nicole, even if she was in the bed room that’s been reported or if she was hiding in a closest that she was in making a phone call to 911. Yet all 4 of the kids were in the same room that Fred went in to and shut the door. And while Steven was going in that door to be with and help the children, Then gets blown away. And all along the mother didn’t even try to keep or help the children she was in a closest. The story just does not add up. And on the bit of a story that one was from a daughter of his. {Fredrick v. Anderson} THE Grandmother wasn’t even in the house at the time of Steven getting murdered nor when Fred shot up the other house. Nicole had done called her mother and she was driving, and Fred on his way to her house., Something just don’t add up!!!!!!! Mother of Steven R Gray B.G.
