'Sympathy for the Devil' photo

Burning Death

Farley Allen Rhodes, 32, sticks his tongue out, as The Daily Mail's Tom Hindman shoots a photograph just after he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole on Wednesday, in Charleston WV. 

Rhode's gesture resembles John Pasche's iconic design for the Rolling Stones, which was also on the 200px-Rollingstones.sftdremix.epcover cover of Mick Jagger's "Sympathy for the Devil." Completely unrelated to Rhode, but a symbolic reminder of the evilness of his crime.

Starlena Without any signs of remorse, Rhodes admitted he threw lighter fluid on his girlfriend Starlena Pratt, 28, and set her on fire in their apartment after she threatened to leave him on 2008.

Pratt died after a month in a burn unit.

Doctors needed to amputate her arms and legs, but her family decided to avoid the procedure and take her off life support. The Daily Mail has the story.
