Man High on Floor Sealing Fumes Kills and Sexually Abuses Body in Front of 6-Year-Old Daughter

There seems to be a an excuse in everyone’s mind for their crappy behavior- but this one is just incredulous. A man sealing a floor claims to be ‘high on the fumes’ and it caused him to do the unthinkable:

Accused: Paul Orchard, 33, appeared confused when officers arrived Saturday, telling them, 'I killed my wife!'

From The Daily Mail:

A father charged with killing his mother-in-law in front of his six-year-old daughter was sexually assaulting the victim when officers arrived at their home, according to court documents.

Paul Orchard told his own mother during a phone call that he believed he was on a ‘vapor high’ from fumes made by the polyurethane he was using to seal the woman’s floor in the town of Peru, Maine.

Orchard, 33, appeared confused when officers arrived Saturday, telling them, ‘I killed my wife!’ the documents said.

Police said Orchard sexually assaulted and strangled 57-year-old Paula Nuttall at their home late Saturday morning while his wife was at work.

Court documents said during a 911 call for help, his daughter could be heard yelling, ‘Daddy, please stop it; please stop it!’

Nuttall died of cardiac arrest during strangulation and sexual assault, according to the state medical examiner’s office.

Orchard told his mother that he was refinishing his mother-in-law’s floor, but wasn’t wearing a mask to protect from the vapors, police said. He told police that he ‘lost it.’

What the WHAT is wrong with people? This guy *allegedly* kills his baby girl’s grandma IN FRONT OF HER. Not to mention the *alleged* sexual assault she probably witnessed also. I hope this kid gets the help she needs because she DEFINETLY needs some. What do you think? Are drugs or alcohol or being ‘high’ in any way an excuse for behavior like this? should he have the same consequences as a sober person?
