    This boy took my loving son who has a beautiful 7 month old little boy. My son thought he was his best friend but it turns out he was his enemy!My life has been torn apart and will never be the same and I pray that one day this boy gets what he deserves. My heart hurts with more pain than anybody can imagine Scotty was so funny and loving!Every time he would walk by little man he would give him a big long kiss and the baby would get be like, (STOOOP!) (not really the stop part!)lol but that was how Scotty was he loved his son so much and you could see it in his eyes when they looked at each other. And I know he loved me so because he would always kiss me and say,"I love you mom" no matter who was around! I miss him so much If anybody would like to see a picture of hin and his little boy, please e-mail @ sammyljustice@bellsouth.net me and I will love to show you there beautiful faces. Thank you and god bless you all. In memory of my loving son Jeffrey Scott GreerII!

    It is a manslaughter charge and not murder therefore you do not have to prove motive.
